Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Mike, I think a poll would be interesting. Maybe 30 options with the user being to select 3. But then again do you really think the NT staff will be interested.

I sent Ray an email a while back expressing my frustrations about not providing additional reference samples instead of the standard "That is not supported" crap. He replied with a "creating an unofficial section of our forum to help users with support issues that are not documented NinjaScript". If true it may help us create the things the NT is sorely missing. Time will tell but I am not holding my breathe.

Most all the NT users here that have submitted a problem or request to NT support have been told "It will be submitted to the developers for future consideration".

A long time ago, I asked to see the list but was turned down.

I figured this thread might serve as a placeholder for anyone who has been told their request is on the "future consideration" list.

So just reply and list what your request was and if possible when you made it, and maybe we can get a clearer picture of what a larger sample/group looks like in terms of their requests.


My most recent request was for them to allow for HOLLOW style candlestick bars, as many other trading platforms do.

They allow us to set the:

Outline color & thickness, (only 1 outline color & 1 outline thickness option - for BOTH UP and DOWN candles) the
Tail color and thickness and the
UP candle color and
DOWN candle color.

I requested they allow us to have the option to set the
UP candle OUTLINE color as well as the
DOWN candle OUTLINE color.

This would eliminate the need to add this coloring option to our indicators.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I prefer to allow the bars to color themselves, rather than have an indicator do that for me. No indicator is flawless and may give many false signals (thus false bar colors) if the indicator paints the bar color.

I'd love to be able to set the UP bar color to TRANSPARENT and the UP Candle OUTLINE color (to Blue or Green) and the DOWN bar color to RED as well as the DOWN OUTLINE color to RED.

That way, we get HOLLOW "UP" bars and SOLID "DOWN" bars (or any other combination we can think of - perhaps HOLLOW UP and DOWN bars?)

Our only option now is for SOLID UP *and* SOLID DOWN bars with *ONE* color for the outline. TOO LIMITING IMHO.

It's 75% there.
They just need to go the additional 25% to make it complete.

"Your request has been received and will be passed on to the development team" was the response.

After all, it's what you learn AFTER you know it all, that counts!
