Futures, foreign currency and options trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones financial security or lifestyle. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

Chameleon


Chameleon was specifically created to provide any price data available from NinjaTrader.  Any time frame, any bar type, and Any instrument.  With Chameleon, you can feed price data from the DOW index in to an SMA(for example) on an S&P500 chart.

Parameters

For plot names that end with SMA, this value is the SMA period.  For plot names that end with Bounds, this value is the number of bars to look back for Lowest price or Highest price.  IE. If this value is set to 3, then the Low Bounds plot will lookback 3 bars and return the lowest low price.  For the High Bounds plot the highest high price will be returned.

When False price data will come from the default chart.  When True the parameters below will appear allowing alternate price data to be selected and used.  Please note, there is a NinjaTrader issue that may cause BloodHound to trigger “SiBloodHound detected out of order bars, bars are being skipped” error message when this setting is True.  See the description below in the blue info box.

NinjaTrader has an issue and when Alternate Instrument/TimeFrame is set to True, it may arise. This issue happens randomly. We have submitted this to NinjaTrader support. You can read their response at… http://www.ninjatrader.com/support/forum/showthread.php?t=67415

Here is a brief explanation of the Ninja issue. Think of BloodHound as the parent indicator, and SiChameleon or any other indicator you load into BloodHound as the child indicators. The issue occurs when the child indicator loads its own secondary/alternate time-frame data, which is what Chameleon does when Alternate Instrument/TimeFrame is being used. (IE, such as a custom SMA indicator that uses 5 minute chart data to display a 5 Minute SMA on any chart you want). NinjaTrader sometimes does not load the SMA’s 5 minute data correctly inside the child indicator. When this happens NinjaTrader will not calculate the child indicator, and therefore skips bars.

Alternate Instrument / Timeframe

This parameter allows you to select an instrument  different from the default chart that BloodHound is running on.
