NinjaTrader is intended for traders of all experience levels, from novice to expert. While there are over a hundred NinjaTrader indicators, you can add additional third-party indicators that better fit your trading strategy.
How to Create a Custom Indicator
By default, you'll get around one hundred indicators on NinjaTrader’s award-winning trading platform. NinjaTrader, on the other hand, allows advanced traders to add third-party indicators for more technical analysis, a custom chart that better suits their setups, or even a way to automate their trading.
The first step is to download your preferred customized indicator. NinjaTrader users can access these third-party customizable indicators through a network of NinjaTrader developers. Moreover, customizable indicators enable traders to tailor their platform experience.
Suppose you have a specific strategy in mind. In that case, you can hire a NinjaTrader programmer to create a custom indicator from scratch or download them from an existing library of third-party indicators. Thousands of free third-party indicators and add-ons are available on NinjaTrader’s User App Share, allowing for virtually limitless trading possibilities.
NinjaTrader Indicator Integration
After downloading the indicators that best suit your trading strategy and style, follow the steps below to install them on your NinjaTrader app. When installing a third-party indicator or app, you'll use NinjaTrader’s Import Utility, which is simple.
NinjaTrader indicators and apps from third parties are all in zip format. When you download them, place the indicator file in a convenient location but do not unzip it. To import your indicator, follow these steps:
● Click Tools in the NinjaTrader app.
● Select Imports. Select NinjaScript Add-Ons from the resulting NinjaTrader control center.
● Navigate through the window that appears to locate the downloaded file. Click the file and then click the 'Open' button at the bottom of the screen.
● There will be a warning about installing third-party apps. If you don't want to see the same message again, click 'Okay' or check the 'Don't show this message again' box.
● You will be notified when your indicator has been successfully installed. You can now begin using the indicator by loading it into new charts.
If you have trouble installing or uninstalling an indicator, make sure the version of NinjaTrader you have on your computer is compatible with the indicator you downloaded. If they aren't, find out how to update NinjaTrader.
