NinjaTrader 6.5 Indicators
Indicators in this section are compatible with NinjaTrader 6.5

SMI5 5 *
This is an enhancement of SMI4 (which was an enhancement / combination of the SMI2 and Cory's SMI2) which added a price bar coloring option, a background coloring option, an option to draw a vertical line on the price panel when trend changes and an option to play a sound upon the formation of a new price bar).

Cory contributed code to color the region between +20 / -20 which indicates a possible chop zone.

The background coloring differs from SMI4, which painted the background based on whether the SMIEMA was above or below the zero line.

This version changes the background color when the SMIUP / SMIDOWN dots rise or fall above the SMIEMA line, indicating a possible change in price direction, for potential earlier entry into the move.

Examples of how I use this indicator can be found in the WizardsDen (HolyGrail II) thread.

March 23, 2010: Update

Fixed a "repainting" problem that other members discovered. Cleaned up the code. Changed the text that read "very over bought / very over sold" to "chop zone upper" & "chop zone lower". Removed the ChopFilter function, as it added nothing to help in keeping you out of chop.

"POSSIBLE CHOP" when SMI dot enters the +20 / -20 zone
"LONG BREAKOUT" when SMI dot exits above the +20 zone
"SHORT BREAKOUT" when SMI dot exits below the -20 zone

May 17th UPDATE:

This fix addresses several problems that were discovered.

Mindset contributed code to color the bars hollow when price is rising & solid when price is falling
eDanny contributed code to remove errant arrows, vertical lines, text messages and also code to clean up the conditions when the warning sounds play.

The arrow code has been changed to (offset*ticksize) so that when you use it on currencies, you shouldn't have to adjust the OFFSET parameter in order to get the arrows to show. They should show automatically now.

I changed it so that it colors the arrows to whatever color you set in the VERTICAL LINE UP/DOWN option. That way, you can have Red/Blue price bars & Magenta / Lime arrows (they are a little easier to spot, I think, when they're not the same color as the price bars).
