Default 2 basic indicators i use on tradestation, can pay for working translate to NINJA8

Hi guys,
I use the two basic indicators on all my charts.
I use a PAINT BAR study based on RSI above or below 50 as OS/OB with variable length...Ive found 5 to be the equivalent of an 8 period ema. although a standard EMA paint bar would do just fine.(it paints intra bar which is nice to see, although I trade only
on the closes)

The second indicator is simply and EMA based Keltner channel, that is shaded(cloud)
instead of just lines at the ATR's. (the shading reduces the clutter, so I dont have lines

I have the 2 indicators on JPEG's in tradestation EZ language and they look relatively
simple for someone with some background in coding.
I've attached the EZ language scripts for both indicators. If someone can make
these babies work in NINJA 8, I can fairly compensate for your time and effort. THANK YOU!!!RSIpaintBAR.JPGEMA-keltner-SHADED-channel.JPG

Hello TAYLZ,
This is trickier than you think; depending on how it's implemented. Will have a look.

Default Can do.

I have already coded a couple of indicators that paint bars according to conditions. I could easily adapt one to suit your needs. With user selectable parameters for bar colours and ema period etc. Let me know if interested, I can have it done within days.
The other one shading the Keltners, I will leave for someone else, as I haven't done anything similar, although I would think it not too difficult, I just don't have the time right now to look at it.
