This is most a placeholder to refer people to ask questions about any indies I have built, request changes or report issues.

There will be a link to this thread in all my indicators, or a place for me to post things about those indicators. I may direct various users here who I am doing work for, so as not to flood other threads.

If you have NEW indicators you want built, don't post in this thread, but request them in the " Want your NinjaTrader indicator created, free?" thread.

That is all.

Random indicators that I have not put in the download section, some of these were conversions(NT7) I did for others(of which I know nothing about), or various requests from others, nothing special, just collating everything into one location.

Closest thing I could find is focused on volume bars

https://ninjatraderecosystem.com/user-app-share-download/volume-bar-timer-2/

Unfortunately it is not compatible with current NT8 and I am looking to use it on more than just volume bars.

If this was possible then the next phase would be to time the amount of time a trade is open.

But I guess one thing at a time. Thanks for thinking about this.

Can you look into THIS one and see if it does what you think you want, or if there are any things it does NOT do that you would want it to do?

@forrestang I am embarrassed not to be able to have found that one. And confused because I typed the URL and got no page found but your link takes me right to it. I also did a search on its It does what I was looking for except for the counting of time in a trade. I will try to figure that part out because seeing I am in a trade for a long time without a win tells me get out and make a new decision. Thank you!

I haven't spent much time using the portion of stuff collecting trade metrics. I just glanced at the docs, most seem to be related to average metrics, like average DD, or average time in trade, etc...

But sure it's probably not hard to parse out the values you are looking for. Will look into it.

I'll get back to you on that.

...I'll get back to you on that.




So I'm actually surprised, but there actually does not appear to be a simple way to do this, especially with an indicator. HERE is a post of someone attempting to do a similar thing that you are looking for, and he was attempting to do it in a bit of a run-around manner.

As is now, there is no simple object that contains a report of tradeperformance, that is NOT tied to a strategy of sorts... at least that is my understanding based on the reading I've done(I could be wrong). I.e., you can get metrics from a strategy, but not simply trades you've actually placed manually. You can get average price for example, but not the TIME that trade was entered.

I'm sure it CAN be done, but it is above my novice level.

As is now, it may be possible to capture a trade placed, and store the time... but that info would be lost when you restarted the platform.

Simpler workarounds might be to have the user manually enter in the time a trade was taken... and you'd just have some counter incrementing the time... but obviously that might get tedious over time.

As in that link above, that is an issue they are talking about adding to a future update, so maybe when they add an object that holds trade performance, this issue will be easier to implement.

Ok, actually, played around with it a bit more... and I figured out a way to do it. I'll have to play around with this a bit more, but threw this together real quick.

You can see here, on the chart, is a trade I took a few hours ago.... and managed to spit out the current time in that trade, which is just under 3 hours ago.

Needs more things to sort out... but actually it is possible and is not as complicated as I initially thought.

Ah shit.

Ok.. the issue is, there is only access to executions taken on the start of NT.... It is either this or the previous day... I'll have to figure out which? But it looks like it doesn't maintain an all-inclusive list of trades taken in the methods I have access to.

So that means, when you restart NT, you would only have access to whatever executions taken on a restart. You'll have to lemme know if this would be useful?

I.e., if you have regularly have trades you would be in while not having ur platform open, this might not be useful.

@forrestang I'm mainly a day trader so this would be useful. Thanks for all the effort. I look forward to a version you have created.

Thanks for posting the trend grabber. Is there anyway it could be made into channel instead? Maybe showing the 32ema. It reminds me of the Sonic R System Strategy from ForexFactory.



See attached.
