View Full Version : Indicators disappearing
12-31-2007, 02:43 PM
When running a strategy analyzer backtest, indicators are displayed correctly on the chart tab. If I go to the Trades tab and right click on a specfic trade the indicators are displayed correctly there also. If I then close the popup chart and go to the Chart tab, all indicators are missing/not displayed. Any subsequent pop up charts are missing indicators also. Re-running the backtest bring the indicators back. Is this a bug?

I can't reproduce on my end. Can you please try this with the SampleMACrossOver strategy on your end and see if it still occurs?

Ran the SampleMACrossOver strategy and reproduced disappearing indicators.
Using NJT 6.5 with esignal feed. Reproduced using 4 different stock instruments on various minute bars

Also, If I right click on chart and select Indicators... the moving averages are listed in Plots. Clicking on Apply does not make them re-appear.

Indicators added by a strategy will only show up as plots. Can you provide me with exact step-by-step instructions from opening of NinjaTrader to reproduce your scenario? Thanks for the help in isolating this matter.

I have seen Indicators disappear off a chart as well, and others have reported this on Elitetrader forums. It is generally considered an NT 6.5 bug, very intermittent (for me at least).
Opening the Indicator menu & clicking Apply will at least bring the indicators back (on a chart anyway).

What was reported on EliteTrader are custom indicators disappearing off the chart. This is what will happen if there is erroneous user generated code in the indicator script. Basically, if there is a bug in a custom script, NT terminates the script (instead of crashing the application), writes out some information to the Log tab and removes it from the chart since it can on longer run.
