    NT8 Volumetrics/OF indicators.: Developed with graphics and not indicator buffers?

    Is there anyone who may be able to shed some light on the following? It's my understanding that the NT8 OF indicators and Volumetric parameters were developed using graphical interfaces and not indicator buffers, therefore making it impossible to code an automated NinjaScript strategy without going to great lengths an expense. For example, say I had a set of conditions associated with a range candle of CL, (i.e. single prints on the bid/ask; (stacked) imbalances, and the close of the candle). When specific conditions associated with the criteria are met, a preset ATM strategy entry would be triggered. Would a programmer need to re-create the Volumetrics settings into a strategy to solve the issue with data access? Thanks in advance for any input. Better yet, if anyone can recommend a trustworthy and reliable programmer who's OK signing an NDA I'm all ears. You can send me a PM. Thanks.

    Hello TraderJim618,

    I'd like to clarify and simply what you are asking..

    Are you asking how to call volumetric bar information from a NinjaScript?

    Below is a link to the help guide which includes a code example.

        Hi Chelsea & ChristopherD, thanks for your replies. To answer your question, yes, and I'm also interested in comparing specific Volumetric candle data in a progressive sequencing from candle to candle, along with evaluating imbalances (excessive buying on the offer or selling on the bid) in a candle. A well-respected NT certified programming company responded back to me regarding the design document I submitted and mentioned the following: "We are not ready to take on this project. The main reason is that your project uses the Order Flow indicators. Such indicators are developed using graphics and not indicators buffers, which makes them impossible to use in an automated NinjaScript strategy. We know that it is better not to take the project on rather than accept it and fail." He mentioned there was a workaround, but the cost might exceed $10 grand or more. I'm trying to better understand this scenario.

          Hello TraderJim618,

          I'm not entirely certain what this means..

          They may be indicating they are not certain of how to call this BarType information as it is not an indicator, its a BarType.

          It is possible call the Volumetric Bar values in a NinjaScript Strategy.

          Attached is the example from the help guide added to a NinjaScript Strategy.

          Is there specific value on the chart that is not available that you would like to make a feature request for the development to consider making available?
