    Using Custom Indicators in Strategy Analyzer

    I have purchased several Indicators from a third party and now i want to use some of them in the Strategy Analyzer. Can you tell me how I can do this?

    Hi freeway,

    You can use custom indicators in the strategy wizard same as any other indicator. They'll be available under the +Indicators category. For help on some conditions you can create using the condition builder, please see the following link:
    http://www.ninjatrader.com/support/h...on_builder.htm

    FYI some vendors do not allow their scripts to be used in a strategy, so you may want to check with them first that they did not set their indicators as chart only.

      When I try to compile the following code I get Error C0103 t2U_BigMo does not exist in current context. Is there something else I need to do?

      if (Close[1] > (t2U_BigMO(4,EMA,89)))
      {
      EnterLong();
      }

        It means the indicator does not exist as you have typed it there.

        If it's available in your platform, you should be able to select it in the condition builder and build this exact expression there.

        C# is case sensitive, and the error may be pointing to a different section of code than you included.
        t2U_BigMo is not the same as t2U_BigMO

          None of the Indicators I purchased show up in the Indicator list in the Condition Builder.

            Thanks. Are you otherwise able to view these indicators? Can apply them to chart? Best would be to work with the vendor in case they designed these for charting only and they may restrict their use in an automated strategy.

              I can use them on charts just fine. I am having trouble getting them to answer my emails and calls. Does the fact that they don't show up in the Condition Builder mean they have restricted them to the charts?

                I'm not sure how they designed the scripts but yes it is possible that they are not available in the condition builder.

                If you have any trouble with partner communication, please send a note to sales 'at' ninjatrader 'dot' com and include details of emails sent- which partner, when you sent emails, etc.
