Hi guys,

NexusFi is challenging members to create the best NinjaTrader indicators and share them to our "Downloads" section, for a chance to win some prizes!

Why NinjaTrader
I am specifically calling for NinjaTrader indicators at this time. I realize there are plenty of members that use other great platforms, and we will include them soon in future challenges. For this particular challenge, we are focusing only on NinjaTrader 8 indicators.

How to add your indicator to our "Downloads" area
First, export your indicator in NinjaTrader to a zip file. Keep in mind that we do not permit closed source (DLL) indicators to be uploaded -- we only allow indicators where the full code is open to all, for safety and for the ability to easily modify and customize them.

If you need help exporting your indicator from NinjaTrader, please go ahead and ask in this thread.

Second, once you have the ZIP file, you'll need to take a screenshot of your NinjaTrader chart that contains the indicator example that you wish to share with other members. If you need help taking the screenshot, please ask in this thread. JPG and PNG is welcome.

(Optional) If your indicator would benefit from a discussion thread on the site, feel free to create a new thread that talks about the indicator. You should probably do that before submitting your indicator, so you can grab the URL for the thread, and add that to the description of the indicator so others may quickly jump to your thread.

Third, you need to Add to our Download section. Click this link to go directly to the Add Entry to NinjaTrader 8 Indicator page:

https://nexusfi.com/local_links.php?action=addlink&catid=27

From this location, put the details of your indicator into the form and then when finished, click submit. You'll add the name of the indicator, a description, keywords (like EMA, ADR, Order Flow, Volume Profile), you'll upload the ZIP file from your computer, and you'll upload the screenshot of your chart as the image.



Don't worry about the other fields -- just leave them alone and at default values.

Last, click Submit at the bottom of the form to add the indicator to our site. Congrats! We appreciate your submission and sharing.

The next post will talk about prizes!

Mike

We will award three prizes for this specific event.

Only new indicators submitted after today will be considered.

Winners will be selected based on popularity -- determined by the number of comments/ratings the indicator receives. We cannot measure based on downloads, as it is too easy to cheat. So we measure based on number of comments/ratings each indicator receives, as it's common for people to rate the indicator they download. We ask you to be honest!

This specific event will run with an end date at the discretion of the moderator team here at futures io. In other words, we will review the new uploads, popularity, how many individuals have participated, how long the event has run, and use our best discretion to determine when a fair date would be to end the event.

Based on this, don't delay with your uploads! You are free to upload more than one indicator!

Prizes:
First place = $150 Amazon Gift Card
Second place = $100 Amazon Gift Card
Third place = $50 Amazon Gift Card


One prize per member. futures io reserves all judgment on how to award prizes or declare winners.

Thank you guys! Looking forward to seeing what you share...

Mike

I know you said the length of the contest will be up to the discretion of the mods... but do you think the time horizon might be on the order of weeks or months? Just curious?

Not a programmer?

No problem. You can still help! When you download an indicator from our site, please take the time to review/comment on it. The feedback helps the programmers, and it will also enable them to be one of the winners of this challenge!

I cannot say for sure, because it will be based on the number of participants. If we receive a lot of participation early on, it will only be weeks.

What about if we modify an indicator from another member to suit our particular needs? Would that count?

It's not really up to me to say -- the other members will decide. If you get a lot of ratings/comments, then yes.

Eligible indicator:



Newsletter going out to feature it, as will happen with all eligible indicators. Give me time to get to your upload.

If you like this indicator and want to support it for winning this challenge, be sure that you "Thank" it within the download section (on right side of Download page) -- for clarification, it is not by thanking this post. You can leave a rating and a comment there as well.

Mike

@forrestang, Any chance you can modify the bar timer to count up the time bars are active for bars like renko, unirenko, etc... so you can see how stale they are in chop zones? If you see a large time - step away do not play.
