Now you can have Doji with your NT unoutlined candles

Indicator to Draw Close On CandleStick Charts That Do No Have An Outline
(DrawCandleClose / DrawCandleCloseWhite / DrawCandleCloseBlack)

Update: For latest information, see my post https://futures.io/ninjatrader/37455-now-you-can-have-doji-your-ninjatrader-unoutlined-candles.html#post542566

NT 8: https://futures.io/local_links.php?catid=27&linkid=1668
NT 7: https://futures.io/local_links.php?catid=27&linkid=1667

A CandleStick in a bar with the same Open and Closing price has no body. The candle's outline top/bottom identifies the Opening and Closing price. If the candle outline color is Transparent the bar will not show the Opening and Closing price. If all trades were at the same price there would be no Wick and the bar would be blank.

This Indicator provides a Hash line when Open[0] == Close[0].

There is a NT Issue and Bug Reports Forum thread on this subject. NT 8 When Open==Close Price Not Visible When Candle Body Transparent - NinjaTrader Support Forum (right click link to open in new Tab or Window) NT is tracking this with ID # SFT-818. NT position: "if enough people support this change, then it could well be worth considering for a future release."

Send them your feedback or post in above NT thread to make this Indicator obsolete.

We uploaded a modified candle stick type in our downloads section that does what you are asking for.

NinjaTrader, Perfect!!!

1 ) Imported CandleStickDoji from info in your post Links and Downloads Manager - NinjaTrader Support Forum (right click link to open in new Tab or Window) .

2) Created 3 Charts (see attached):

Top CandleStick: Chart Style = Candlestick

Middle CandleStickDoji: Chart Style = CandleStickDoji
(Notice how our eyes perceive the red and green as brighter without the Black Outline)

Bottom CandleStickDoji on Black Background:
Chart Style = CandleStickDoji , Candle wick = WhiteSmoke ,
Chart Property Background = Black and All marking that were Black = WhiteSmoke.
(My favorite. Looks even better without the glare from the two above.
Much less eye strain when viewed for long periods.
And, best when combined with Black Windows desktop background.)

Will update my DrawCandleClose posts with information about CandleStickDoji

You can see how Chart Style CandleStickDoji.cs works by comparing to @ CandleStyle.cs in NT8 Bin\Custom\ChartStyles folder.
I use free WinMerge to compare files WinMerge .

Have developed and posted a fix to standard NT8 CandleStick Chart Style at https://futures.io/local_links.php?action=ratelink&catid=27&linkid=1668 .

NT8 Fix for Tracking ID # SFT-818 , Missing Doji when CandleStick Outline Transparent:
Description: Always draw the Doji Close line with the Wick Color instead of the Outline Color.

Eliminates need for my DrawCandleClose Indicator and Candle Stick Doji Chart Style.

See link for details.

Have developed fixes for both NT8 and NT7 for Tracking ID # SFT-818 - Missing Doji

Have developed fixes for both NT8 and NT7 for Tracking ID # SFT-818 - Missing Doji when CandleStick Outline Transparent.

Fix Description: Have the standard \Documents\NinjaTrader 8\bin\Custom\ChartStyles\@CandleStyle.cs always draw the Doji Close line with the Wick Color instead of the Outline Color. Note that NT7 had logic to draw a Black Close line, if the Outline color was Transparent and the Background color was White. This logic has been removed in NT8, so the problem appears in NT8 regardless of Background color.

These fixes eliminate the inefficiency of having an Indicator check every CandleStick bar close for Open==Close and overwrite the already drawn Transparent Close line.

Applying this fix in no way changes the appearance of CandleSticks that have bodies. This can be verified with the examples provided.

NT 8 version fix available at https://futures.io/local_links.php?catid=27&linkid=1668
NT 7 Version fix available at https://futures.io/local_links.php?catid=27&linkid=1667

If you would like to have this fix as standard NT8 CandleStick behavior, then post your vote for Tracking ID # SFT-818 to this thread.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
