    Complete Newbie, help converting old inicator into ninjatrader compatible format

    Hi guys, I was wondering if someone can help me convert on of my favourite indicators into a ninja-trader compatible format.

    The indicator itself is not propriety. I sent an email to my broker and asked if I can use the code and he said it was fine since dukascopy does not have any "premium" or paid indicators.
    The code below is from my forex platform with dukascopy.

    fisma028, welcome to our forums - do you have perhaps a screenshot of your study at work? I'm pretty sure it might already exist in our sharing potentially, so you'd have a good starting base here.

      Hello, thanks for the response.

      I've posted a screenshot example below.

      In the image, there are 3 separate indicators showing.

      The white line in the center is a simple moving average (20 period)

      The black line is a moving average envelope (20 period, 0.5 deviations). This indicator is available on ninjatrader.

      But the indicator im interested in (with code provided above) is the thick blue and red lines.

      They are also simple moving average (20 period, 0.5 deviations).

      I'm not sure exactly what rule is being used (hopefully the code can enlighten us), but it seems to be something to do with candles opening or closing outside the envelopes, and some other filter.

      Please see image.

      (PS, im looking for this indicator specifically based only on the simple moving average or exponential moving average. Ive searcehd the ninjatrader indicator bank and all the indicators similar to this are all based on the ATR , and not moving averages.)
      Thanks

          Thanks a lot!,

          Will I get a pm or should I keep checking back in this thread once in a while?

              The indicator is a SMA with a channel. The channel width is calculated as a fixed percentage of the prior value of the SMA. In an uptrend the lower band of the channel is converted to a trailing stop. The trend change from uptrend to downtrend is triggered, when the lower band is touched, In a downtrend the upper band of the channel is converted to a trailing stop, The trend change from downtrend to uptrend is triggered when the upper band is touched.

              The same logic could be applied to Bollinger Bands or Keltner Channels.

                Hello,

                Thank you for your patience. I've worked up an indicator that accomplishes what you are looking for (see attached). Just as in your screenshot, this indicator draws a moving average, then plots upper and lower bands based on an envelope percentage. In addition, the indicator includes upper and lower lines that follow the upper and lower bands (only moving in the right direction, never backwards), that will only display if the price last breached the upper or lower band.

                In addition, this indicator will allow you to specify a moving-average type in the Indicators window. You can select between SMA, EMA, HMA, TMA, TEMA, or WMA, and the envelopes and tracking lines will work the same way. You can adjust the envelope percentage and moving-average period in the Indicators window, as well.

                Below is a screenshot of this indicator applied to a chart:



                Please let me know if I can assist further.

                  Davel - I thought I'd download this and see how you approached this.

                  Great coding! I learnt quite a bit from the way you did this.

                  Cheers.
