something that we have and continue to do for our fellows are to post both the indicator panel to show what is used, and perhaps a template
what happens with a template in Ninja is,
if all the initial indicators used are not present before they are used or called upon, the template deletes all references to them, so this is a destructive process, and I will refer this issue to Ninja to repair
creating an export package of the indicators used is a simpler way to share, then all that need be posted are the package and then the template
reason I am explaining this to you and to others by extension is often times we waist so much effort and time to replicate or catch up with the displayed results and charts to the point where its no longer worth it and we give up in favor of getting back to making a living trading
now the upside to you directly and any other poster, is through use, the other members will be generous as to share in like kind and improve your results and outlook, which would not otherwise happen
good trading to you and all!

I do not know anything about Ninja so I can be to no help in matters regarding Ninja. I had Tradestation in the past but now I only use Sierra. I will answer questions about my chart and the indicators I use. All except the StepMa are included in Sierra. The charts seems ok for manually trading if the used in a trending market. In a choppy market not so god. You have to bear with me because I am from Sweden so my English is poor. My intention with my tread is the use of Renko bars. So ask me questions and feel free to post you own chart's in my tread.

Thanks: 216 given,
your english sound like you live in Brooklyn, NY!
anyways, too many of us presume Ninja as the defacto software standard, although it is fraught with problems, heavy computer systems demands and troublesome times, more often than not.
let's start with this,
what is the smallest interval on the Renkos that you are successful with timing trades entry?
I have noticed that a number of vendors, have chosen to use Renko and modified or hybrid Renko, but at their smallest intervals, almost violating the concept of renko and reducing it to the equivalent of a 3min - 5min time based chart
My basic settings are these checked: fill session gap, new bar when exceeded, new bar at session start and load weekend data. the session is 24 hours. For the Bund and currency 3-2-2 CL NG and NQ 5-2-2. DAX might need 6-2-2 or 7-2-2.
But in a choppy market you have to careful. Renko seems to work best in trending futures. My entries are with stop orders. They are placed at the price there the new bars begins in the direction of the trade. Stop a couple of ticks below/above the reversal bar.
