While there may be a problem with the file or you actually may be missing a required file, once you copied the .cs file into your NT7\bin\custom\indicators folder, did you launch NT7, go to File\tools\edit Ninja script, pick ANY file, select open and press the compile icon?
If no error messages appeared, you can just exit the open file without saving it first. The new indicator will now appear in the list of available indicators when you select the indicators icon on an open chart.
If you do get error messages, they will show the indicator with the problem (most likely the one just imported). Just exit NT7 and delete the suspect indicator from your NT7\bin\custom\indicators folder.
I don't know which file you tried to download, but the NT7V5 version looks to be in a zip format in post #117. The .cs version V4A in post #138 looks to be for NT6.5.

yes when i compiled it said something was missing and i'm not trained in script writting so didnt venture further. great news though. i found a download that is combined with the momstop and it imported perfectly. so i'm all set after all.
thank you so much for getting back to me i was in a real spin.

Thanks: 60 given,
This is a very interesting indicator. Putting it on my main scalping chart, it is extremely accurate at detecting tops and bottoms. Likewise, in trends, the failure of the signals are exceptional continuation trades.
One thing I noticed eas that this seems to be very CPU intensive. Loading it on a 2 day 3Range chart of CL can take upwards of a minute for even a single parameter change in the settings to take effect. It seems to only be upon initially loading the indi or when changing a parameter. I was able to improve on that by only loading 1 day of data at a time.
The other thing. When setting diamonds to transparent, the outline still shows. Only the fill and the S&R dots are transparent. Can anyone point me to where I can change this. I tried changing it to DrawDot, but it still shows a circular outline.
I have been using this for a few weeks now. Cory has been good about answewring some questions. I tried it on tick charts and minute charts...got the best correlations on minute charts. Depending on mkt, I use 1,3, or 5m charts. I look at strength of trend coming into indicaton prior to making trade. TF likes to double flush back to indicator line.
Are there others who are using this? Any comments??
