    [NT8] SMA with color based on slope.

    Is there a way to change the color of a SMA based on it's slope in NT8?

    Hello Drtro,

    Thank you for your inquiry.

    You would be able to utilize the Slope() method call, and based on the return value, change the color of your plots.

    http://ninjatrader.com/support/helpG...-us/?slope.htm

    We have a reference sample on our support forum that details multi-colored plots: http://ninjatrader.com/support/forum...ead.php?t=3227

    As an example:
    Code:
    // if the slope of the line of a 20 period SMA in the last 10 bars is more than 0.5, change the plot to black
    if (Slope(SMA(20), 10, 0) > 0.5)
         PlotBrushes[0][0] = Brushes.Black;
    Please, let us know if we may be of further assistance.

      It works. How do I make the colors variable to be able to change in the indicator settings?
