Add above/below bar options for Algo bars helper chart markers.
Add data imbalance percent to Algo bars helper.
Data grid – Delta imbalance percent now drops 100 from the values, so, 140 becomes 40, 102, becomes 2, etc. The 1 was always present and is just another number to absorb. So, the value is now the absolute value above 100. There are fewer numbers to read and the grid is less cluttered. Better!
Fix bug with voice announcement for divergence alerts (would occasionally get the wrong announcement)
Added delta wicks option to data grid delta candles (off by default)
Added ‘centre on candle’ option in profiles appearance for the Buy volume on right, sell on left display option. This shifts the candle to the left, where it would be more aligned with the default candles and other indicator bars. This may be preferable to some or in some instances. The default (prior) behaviour is the default.
Added MAXDELTAATPRICE to the list of supported ALGO BARS alert conditions
Changed NinjaTrader standard alerts to include voice alert announcement suffix text ( to distinguish between different alerts on the same symbol from different charts)
Changed BUY alert background text from RED to GREEN
Minor adjustment to relative volumes settings in order to group them together to better support upcoming new features
Added new high delta alerts (same as recently added new high volume alert which proved very useful!), but for delta.
FIX – I had inadvertently left a debug statement in the code which may have disabled relative widths on some profile types, even if you had this option on.
Note – you should be using Ninjatrader version 22.214.171.124 or above for this release (Ninjatrader changed to a 64bit-only model), however, at this time, we cannot recommend using the 8.1.x.x branch. 126.96.36.199 is the last known recommended version.
Fixed a bug where the current bar might not be drawn if using time charts and ‘use relative widths for profiles’ was turned off (Sorry folks, that was a default setting that I do not actually use. For me it is always on, and this one slipped through the net)
Adding a new sample template (one of the ones I use daily) to the indicator templates
Fixed a bug in the display of naked VPOC’s that might result in the indicator stopping to render occasionally, requiring an F5 to reload the indicator (a rare event)
Added a new ‘Trade aid’ – Alert on new high-volume option (this alerts you to a new bar that has a higher volume than any other currently displayed)
Removed OnRender rendering speed stat debug message from distribution (this was to measure performance on different platforms)
Changed various default settings for a better ‘Out of the box’ experience. In particular, some styling options and colours were changed, and the data grid is now shown by default. If you wish to review the existing settings as an existing user, you can ‘reset’ the indicator to the default settings via the bottom right-hand corner ‘templates’ option in the settings.
Variable width profiles are now the default. This will not override existing settings, but, if you prefer fixed-width profiles as a new user, please turn off the ‘use variable widths for profiles’ option.
Some internal code changes to improve startup times and general best code practices.
Added the first iteration of ‘Algo bars’ – This is a fairly exciting idea that allows you to mark, alert, and highlight interesting events, without using code. Some examples will follow in this documentation soon.
Currently supported variables are, CLOSE, DELTA, DELTARANK, VOLRANK, VOLUME, HIGH, LOW, OPEN, HIGH[n], LOW[n], OPEN[n], CLOSE[n]
One criterion per line is currently accepted, per the example below
Changed behaviour when ‘Draw cell borders’ enabled on profile style that shows buy vol on left, buy on right to use the cell border up/down colours, instead of using up/down colours if the candle is up/down. The same behaviour is retained for traditional profiles (i.e. candle up/down decides border colour).
Internal improvements to in-memory data storage
Removed native POC plot
Removed some internal series storing values, in favour of a more performant solution
Increased performance of time and sales prints
Changed POC plot to align better when in left/right volume profile mode
Added new voice alert options for increasing volumes
New ‘Trade Aid’ – Unfinished action detection
Code optimisations and other minor changes
