Requesting basic OHLC indicator.

Hi,

As mentioned in a thread that's really about Sierra charts, I'm looking for a basic OHLC indicator. I would like it to plot

- Open
- High
- Low
- Close

For each trading day. For tomorrow/current live day, I'd like it to plot the Open and current High/Low with the horizontal lines projecting to the right at the end of the session. I use the US Equities RTH 09:30-16:00 session.

Preferrably, but not a strict requirement, I'd also like it to color code the high/low lines based on whether the high or low comes first on the day. If low before high = green; If high before low = red.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


Any ideas? Could I code something like this myself (I think not)?

I was suggested that as an Elite Member I might be able to find something like this, but looking at all the available indicators, it does not seem like something like this is available...

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hey, cory,

Thanks!

Am I supposed to zip this before importing it to Ninja? I tried just that, but got an error message: "This was made using an older version of NT..."

Best regards.

move the .cs file to folder Documents\NinjaTrader 8\bin\Custom\Indicators then use Ninja to open it and compile it so that it will show up on indicator list.

Thanks, cory, but since I'm currently on a free version of Ninja (I'm in the process of funding, so should have the full version in a few weeks), it seems like I can't compile indicators...?

Or maybe I just couldn't figure it out.

I did a search and learned that importing some other Ninjascript would have Ninja compile all indicators. This seemed to work!

The indicator is now on my list, but it doesn't seem to display any lines...

What am I doing wrong?

change your chart to 60M, the plot is too far away to see on your 1m chart or you can squeeze the chart down to see the plots.

Doesn't help, I'm afraid.

And regardless - it's meant to be plotted on a 1-minute/5-minute chart. How can the plot be too far away when it's (supposed to) plotted for each trading day?

I don't have any idea why you can't see it. Maybe somebody else can try to import it and see what happen.

That's very odd. I just tried rebooting and that didn't help either.

Anyway, your screenshot is pretty much exactly what I had in mind, so...
