    Enabling Manipulation of Indicators within Indicators

    I had a talk with some programmers and we were trying to figure out how to take full advantage of the new Ninjatrader 8 optimization functionality for advanced Strategy testing and development. I was told this wasn't fully possible yet because the platform needs to support manipulating nested indicators within indicators in order to manipulate their variables.

    Can this be added for expanded functionality?

    Hello khari998,

    The optimizer will only list parameters from the strategy.

    As long as the nested indicators have their parameters modified by the parameters of the hosting indicator and the hosting strategy, you should be able to optimize a parameter of a nested indicator.

    As a test, you can run the attached strategy in the Strategy Analyzer with the Output window open. The Period value of the nested indicator will be printed in the output window, and you will see that the Period parameter is changing with an optimization backtest.

    If this does not resolve your inquiry, could you provide further detail on what you are trying to accomplish and the issues you are encountering?
