3rd Party Indicators
Will Your 3rd Party (custom) Indicator Work with BloodHound
BloodHound can read 3rd-party indicators, provided they expose their data using NinjaTrader's recommended Plot and/or a Series<T> as specified in their Help guide. BloodHound does not require special coding by 3rd-party indicators to read/use them. As long as the indicator is programmed in accordance with NinjaTrader's built-in indicator it will be readable by BloodHound.
We are not able to comment on any particular indicator, because we have no way of knowing how the author programmed it. Nor will other vendors give us their indicators for testing.
