Hello

Does anybody know of an indicator for ninjatrader that plots the close N weeks ago?

Unfortunately, although it would probably be simple to code, my programming skills are non-existent.

Thanks
Chris

Just to provide a little context, I'm trying to build a breakout strategy that I got from Larry Connors.

I have the amibroker code but I'm trying to build it in Ninjatrader with Bloodhound so that I can play around with it on different markets and timeframes and with different conditions to those specified in the amibroker code.

Bloodhound is very useful when you have the right indicators with which to build a strategy. You can even use it to produce a signal like an indicator. For example, you can get it to tell you when the current weekly close has been above the weekly close of 5 weeks ago for the last 8 weeks therefore defining an upthrust.

However, I haven't found a way to then incorporate these signals into a strategy. Come to think of it, it would be useful if bloodhound could be made to work in 'indicator mode' so that the signals it produced are then treated as indicator signals and can be used as inputs into a strategy - this would be the holy grail of a programming free, system trading construction platform!.

If anybody could help me with the code for this indicator then I would be happy to give you the amibroker code and the pdf describing the breakout strategy, which has a good record of double digit returns for the last 15 years on the S&P500, so long as you did not give it to anybody else and respected Larry Connors' copyright on it.

Hi Chris - sorry I can't help you as I don't code on NT.

In most trading platforms, once you've set the chart to weekly timeframe, I think what would work is something like

Close[n]

Where n is the number of weeks ago you want.


However, I appreciate this may not be helpful to you given you don't code at all.


You may try on this thread for specific help on NT




Good luck.
