NinjaTrader New Features Custom Indicator Settings

The award-winning NinjaTrader platform includes 100+ out-of-the-box indicators equipping users with a vast arsenal of market analysis tools. To further enhance the technical analysis experience, users can now create and save custom templates for indicators.

Custom indicator templates allow users to quickly add indicators with customized settings saving valuable time to focus more on the markets. The addition of this new capability will help NinjaTrader users:

  • Easily differentiate between indicators on charts: Using custom indicator templates, users can visually customize and save each indicator to their preferences for familiarity and ease of identification on a chart.
  • Quickly adapt to changing market conditions: The ability to toggle between different indicator templates allows traders to react swiftly to unpredictable markets. For example, a user may have different indicator settings for trending versus choppy market conditions.
  • Seamlessly analyze across multiple timeframes: In addition to dynamic markets, traders may want to customize trading indicators based on different time intervals and/or bar types. The ability to save and load various templates based on time frame and bar type makes market analysis more efficient and user-friendly.
