    Hello Splex,

    Thanks for your post.

    We cannot convert that indicator because the source code was not provided, the indicator is compiled and its code is obfuscated to prevent accessing/changing/reading.

    If you wish to pursue this for NinjaTrader8, you might try checking with the indicator author to see if they can provide an NT8 version. Alternately, you could enlist a 3rd party programmer to provide the indicator for your specific needs. If this is of interest, we can provide a link to 3rd party programming.

    I stumbled accross this indicator on NT7. Wondering if it was ever converted to NT8? This looks like exactly what I need.
    There're couple of indicators that allow to plot spreads. However, all of them have severe limitations as to number of legs and mathematical complexity of expressions one can input. As none of them really suit my needs I decided to develop a new indicator from scratch that would overcome these shortcomings. The indicator I've developed …

    Hello Gianni78bari,

    Thanks for your reply.

    I am not aware of another version coded but there may be.

    If you would like the indicator created for you an alternative is to hire a 3rd party programmer and we can provide links to such providers.

    I noticed in the video that the video provider added a link for you to download what they were displaying, if that is what you want.
    Unfortunately the link doesn't work anymore

    It could be possible modify "Net change indicator" in NT8 in order to plot a line starting at zero at the beginning of the trading session? This would be useful also applied to the indicator "Compare" in this thread.
    Something like that in this video
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mn4KDM2pS7c
    Maybe it has already been coded??
    Thanks

    Thanks for your reply.

    I replicated the code you posted and do not see an issue.

    Can you provide further information about the chart/instrument that you are applying the indicator to?

    What data feed are you connecting to?
    I'm using NinjaTrader Continuum demo. I'm applying the indicator to ES12-19 and the additional data series for comparing is ZN12-19 which is enabled for real time quotes.
    that's the code in my editor: AddDataSeries("ZN 12-19", Data.BarsPeriodType.Minute, 1, Data.MarketDataType.Last);

    Thank you for your kind reply

    Thanks for your post and welcome to the NinjaTrader forums!

    Your example is correct: Values[0][0]= Closes[0][0] / Closes[1][0]; and I will correct mine in post #4.

    If you do not see an output, please check the "log" tab of the control center for any error messages related to the indicator.
    Thanks for your answer.
    That's the message I read in the log tab:
    "Indicator 'MyCustomIndicator1': Error on calling 'OnBarUpdate' method on bar -1: You are accessing an index with a value that is invalid since it is out-of-range. I.E. accessing a series [barsAgo] with a value of 5 when there are only 4 bars on the chart"

    As I said, for now I can't program, so I would know if there's an easy way to fix it, 'cause it could be useful for other traders too.

    Thanks for your post.

    Sorry for the error in the example, please try Values[0] = Closes[0][0] / Closes[1][0]; // divide the current bar value of the chart bars by the added data series.
    Premise: I'm not a programmer.
    I tried with the code above and it gives an error (I translate from italian): "Impossible convert type double in NinjaTrader.NinjaScript.Series<double>"
    So I tried and modified the script this way: "Values[0][0]= Closes[0][0] / Closes[1][0];"
    Now it gives no syntactic error but when I add the indicator to a chart it doesn't plot anything.
    How can I fix this problem? (please find attached the nt8 editor screenshot)
    Thank you very much
