NT indicator disappearing issues?

Has anyone experienced an issue with NinjaTrade where some of the indicators you have on your charts do not show up until you scroll the chart backwards? As soon as you move back to the hard right edge they disappear again. It also happens on each day....as I scroll back the indicators will only show up as I make it to that days range.

This is something that has just happened as I didn't have this problem before this week.

Thanks!!
MO

@mojord: The behaviour can be caused by a custom plot or by multiple bar series loaded with market replay.

Please let us know, which indicators show this behaviour, and whether it was in market replay or on a regular chart.

After working with Fat Tails it turned out I had an older version of an indicator. As soon as I upgraded it fixed the issues I was having.

Thanks for all your help!!!!

I see NT platform itself very stable.

So, the weird problem can only come from third-party tools, and in your case, the outdated indicator

I agree, it is, and nearly all do. Apart from the world famous missing rectangles when scrolling bug.

Solution: NT indicator disappearing issues? Scrolling backward

MO

I found the reason for it after a some debugging of an indicator that I am writing with NT7. This is just to save time to other programmers.

I am writing an indicator that calculates and plots the lowest of the day using:

this.MyLow.Set(myLow);

where myLow is a variable initialized to "double.MinValue". Also I plot it starting at CurrentBar zero, the first bar of the chart.
So I resolved the the problem by changing the initialization value to -0e-99 or by writing:

if (100<CurrentBar) this.MyLow.Set(myLow);

I did not debug it deeper than that as I am fixing it other ways but I also noticed that the problem remains even if I wait for two bars only:

if (2<CurrentBar)

and that's also strange since the code needs one bar only to be evaluated.

Best

I would possibly disagree with what you have written. Why not post the code of the indicator here and we can easily check it and find the reason why it does not display.

NinjaTrader already comes with an OHL indicator which plots the low of the day. What is your intention when writing a new one?
