    Problem With MACD

    You see in the picture that the MACD and Average are behind the difference. I don't want it this way. I don't know why it would be this way, never has in the past. I'm using NT8 and I just selected the MACD from the list of indicators. How do I fix this?

      Hello Skyfly1715,

      The order of presentation of plots differs in this case between NinjaTrader 7 and NinjaTrader 8. You can import the MACD modification I have made which adds the Diff plot first which results in it being behind the MACD and AVG lines.

      Let us know if you have any questions.

          This begs the question of why weren't the plots reordered like we need to do with every conversion from NT7? Lines should be in front of histograms in most cases by default for readability. Curious.

            Hello eDanny,

            The order of adding plots in the MACD indicator is the same from NT7 to prevent code breaking changes. (If the plot order changes, NinjaScripts that use the indicator would be referencing a different plot.)

            The internal way the plots are drawn is closed source, and I couldn't really comment why the ordering was decided to be the way that it is. Changing it now would likely affect many existing client/vendor NinjaScripts, so I would not expect this to change.

              Unfortunately the NT7 version, as well as almost all stock indicators, doesn't assign names to all the plots dataseries and at least usually reference the first plot as Value. If all stock indicators had named dataseries for every plot and all stock indicators that referenced other stock indicators were written to access plots by name, this would never be an issue at this point. Hindsight. You know, instead of changing the order of plot hierarchy from the NT7 way to the "more intuitive" NT8 way, there would also be no problem.
