Momentum Bars

Momentum Bars offers a different way to visualize momentum - and uses some simple TA concepts to provide a different perspective into how we read momentum changes and incorporate that in our trading. The idea here (and the script itself) is really super simple, and is inspired by Elder's Impulse System ( EIS ) - then evolved to leverage some other concepts, and to become less cluttering and "easier to read".
Manufacturer: nt8indicators

The base concept comes from RedKTrader on TradinView ( and utilizes 3 moving average lines :

  • the first line is a relatively fast MA with a short length - acts as the main price tracking line

  • the second line is slightly slower than the main line - 2 to 3 bars longer length - and will by default use the open value as source - this works better to identify when the closing price starts to move faster than the open (as in, bars more frequently close higher than they open) - this line acts as the signal line - there's an added setting for an additional delay that utilizes regular WMA smoothing - the delay acts to magnify the relative displacement between the 2 MAs

  • the third line is a much slower MA (length 5 to 6 x the fast line) - and acts as a filter or a baseline. When we're above that line, we should favor long positions - we're in bull territory. When we're below that line we favor short positions, and we're in bear territory. Adjust this line as it suits your trading style and time frame.
    (As the original concept, I choose to use WMA as the MA type for the filter line .. and there's a good reason for that - which i'll skip for now - but in future versions, we can add other selectable MA types. )

Sheriff's HiLo

Hopefully, nobody shoot the Sherif here. This confirmation indicator was released recently in the Metatrader ecosystem, and I thought it would be intereting to develop it for the NinjaTrader Paltform. This indicator has 3 main advantages: - it is a very broad signals for long trend moves (short or long). - it is a simple color based identification. - it has only two settings for quick(er) testing. The default settings for this indicator returned very interesting results. nut tweaking the settings sometimes give spectacular, sometimes ordinary results.

Volume Moving Average

Volume moving average is an indicator based on Ninjatrader Volume Up & Down. It applies a choice of 10 differents moving averages (DEMA, EMA, HMA, LinReg, SMA, TMA, TEMA, VWMA, ZLEMA and WMA). The result is displayed as an "oscillator like" indicator. Buy and sell signals are given in many different ways, so it's up to you to choose the one that suits you best.

Dorsey Inertia

Developed by Donald Dorsey, the Inertia Indicator is an extension of Dorseys Relative Volatility Index and is used to define the long-term trend and how far it has extended. Its name refers to the physics term and its reference to direction and mass of motion. Dorsey states that a trend is simply the “outward result of inertia” and as such, the market will require much more energy to reverse its direction than to extend the ongoing move.


This indicator is considered a “confirmation indicator” which falls into the category of indicators that serve as an initial checkpoint after the baseline indicator provides you with a foundational signal. The Coral indicator is a combination of moving averages smoothed exponentially.
