Default I need a MT4 Custom indicator converted

I am new to Ninja Trader. I've been using MT4 but am ready to make the switch. I got two indicators from somewhere, I dont have a source code or anything like that, all I have is the files itself: .ex4. I would like them to be converted into indicators that I can use on Ninjatrader. Can one do that?

what you need is a mt4 source file not an ex4? then someone can do that.

ex4 is binary and mt4 is ascii

Nillie, welcome to our forums! If you have the source code, you try posting this here as attachment and then the community may take it up for conversion...if not you can always contact a NinjaScript consultant for professional conversion work - http://www.ninjatrader.com/webnew/pa...injaScript.htm

It is a custom indicator I got from someone so I do not know the scripts or anything. I just have the ex4 file.

Nillie, you would need to check with the contact you got this from if they are able to give you access to the source code as well, then it could be programmed in our NinjaScript language for usage on your NinjaTrader charts.

OK I got it from ex4 to mq4: I am guessing that is what I was suppose to do, correct? I am brand new to all this "source file" stuff.

Yes, now you can have a look at the underlying code generating the indicator, this would need to be programmed then in NinjaScript.

If you like to get into this yourself, we have tutorials ready teaching the first steps to get you going -

If you need this professionally custom coded for you, please contact a NinjaScript consultant -
