I found a really awesome strategy here on Futures io under the ThinkorSwim indicator section. Link:

https://futures.io/download/thinkorswim/2060-download.html?view

Ive been known to dabble with a little thinkscript but C# on Ninjatrader is beyond complicated, at least for me for now...

Can any programmer member/user convert it from TOS to NT8? That would be awesome, and I am sure a lot of us NT8 heads will find good use for it. In TOS the code is literally only 27 lines long. Nothing over complicated. Although I love TOS, the platform is slow and I'd rather trade with only NT8 rather than both.

The only thing is, I would like it as an indicator signal rather than a strategy. AKA Up arrow for long and down arrow for short.

To whomever takes up the task, thank you in advance!

Hi, I would suggest that you start learning C# with C++, it is a subset of C# and learning it without objects and inheritance is fairly easy. If you have 4 hours to invest, try out this youtube video, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vLnPwxZdW4Y. It is very good.

Thanks for that link. I will check it out. Im definitely trying to learn. Also, I would have replied to you sooner, but this user interface makes it kinda hard to write posts and reply. Getting used to it though lol. Thanks again!
