    Coloured candlestick based on delta

    Hi everyone, it's possible to create a coloured candlestick based on delta as chart style and not as indicator or add on?
    For example if i'm using a 10 range chart and a common up bar is coloured of green with this chartstyle is coloured of green just if it have a positive delta so if this bar have a negative delta it will be coloured red and viceversa for down bars. It's possible to create? And where can i learn to develop ninjascript? I have to learn by 0.
    Thanks

    Hello ClFil,

    Thank you for your post.

    You could certainly program such a Chart Style. If you're new to NinjaScript, however, I would suggest doing this as an indicator instead, as that would be simpler given what you want to do. You can certainly use an indicator to change the candle color based on the bar's delta.

    We do have resources to help you begin creating NinjaScript Strategies/Indicators. All links below are publicly available.

    The best way to begin learning NinjaScript is to use the Strategy Builder. With the Strategy Builder you can setup conditions and variables and then see the generated code in the NinjaScript Editor by clicking the View Code button.

    I'm also providing a link to a pre-recorded set of videos 'Strategy Builder 301' and 'NinjaScript Editor 401' for you to view at your own convenience.

    NinjaScript Editor 401

    If you are new to C#, to get a basic foundation for the concepts and syntax used in NinjaScript I would recommend this section of articles in our NT7 help guide first:

    Basic Programming Concepts

    For general C# education I have personally found Dot Net Perls to be a great reference site with easy to understand examples.

    https://www.dotnetperls.com/

    There are a few Sample Automated Strategies which come pre-configured in NinjaTrader that you can use as a starting point. These are found under New -> NinjaScript Editor -> Strategy. You will see locked strategies where you can see the details of the code, but you will not be able to edit (you can though always create copies you can later edit via right click > Save as)

    We also have some Reference samples online as well as ‘Tips and Tricks’ for both indicators and strategies:

    Click here to see our NinjaScript Reference Samples
    Click here to see our NinjaScript Tips

    These samples can be downloaded, installed and modified from NinjaTrader and hopefully serve as a good base for your custom works.

    Further, the following link is to our help guide with an alphabetical reference list to all supported methods, properties, and objects that are used in NinjaScript.
    Alphabetical Reference

    And our Educational Resources in the NinjaTrader 8 help guide.
    Educational Resources

    A set of specific tutorials for creating conditions in the NinjaTrader 8 Strategy Builder in the NinjaTrader 8 help guide.

    You can also contact one of our professional NinjaScript Consultants or Educators who would be eager to create or modify this script at your request or assist you with your script. Please let me know if you would like a list of professional NinjaScript Consultants or Educators who would be happy to create or modify any script at your request or assist you in learning NinjaScript.

    Please let me know if I may be of further assistance.
