After 2 weeks of training and recording sections of NexGen T3, I was in complete sticker shock. I am going to purchase Ninja Trader and open an account at Mirus Futures. I think the only thing I am lacking is indicators. Does anyone have similar indicators as NexGen? I want to SIM for another months, then go live. I am looking for Large Triggers, Small Triggers, Bollinger Bands, Mid Band, MACD's, Support and Resistance lines. After reviewing so many different post, it seems that there are many ways an indicator can read. I have a good amount of knowledge from NexGen, but just don't want to pay the price for the software considering it's all free or close to free. Any pointers?

Thank you for any input. (the new guy)

I appreciate it. So do I just download a set and try them out? Any recommendations?

hey Mr mrloanapproval !

welcome to futures.io (formerly BMT) btw

we do not offer sets off vendors-indicators here - lol

but one fun / hobby for traders + coders is to have a look at verndor-stuff + try to reproduce it with free stuff or maybe to come near to their stuff.

this is good for learning how things work and also good for building up experience + a "feeling" for indicators + setups.

but it is not cracking codes or so, its just like trying to paint pics like keith haring maybe -- just for having fun - not for selling at the end.
and this is NO illegal action, there is no problem with this.

of course its nice if you discover things while doing this and use them your further trading-setups.

first what you need to do all this is : screenshots, screenshots , screnshots of the stuff you want to rebuild.
you must compare the original things to your own replicas again and again in charts to get as close to it as possible.

so that would be the beginning : if you watch the original stuff, make screenshots of it ! take care that you have time + price-axes on it.
then you go ahead and build own charts that looks like those ... thats the start point of the game.

i can not say : try this or try that without having pictures + examples to show what the point is, that should be created.

i dont know if EOT Pro or sharkys stuff is close to nexgen because i dont know how nexgen looks
or even better said : i dont know what you have seen while you looked to Nexgen-stuff

also if you say small triggers or Mid Bands - this can be lots of things, the names often says nothing.

so if you post pictures of what you talk about, its the best way to get in the direction of what you want i think.
