software set up guide
First, download NinjaTrader 7 and register for your free data.
Then follow this video for help installing NinjaTrader and connecting to your data feed:
Next, make sure you have downloaded the DPX toolkit.
Extract (Unzip) the DPXToolkit file, so it is now a regular folder. Remember where this folder is.
Then, click on File>Utilities>Import NinjaScript.
Navigate to the DeltaPhiDPX file in the DPXToolkit folder, and import it.
Next, repeat this process to import the UniRenkoBarsType file.
After both NinjaScripts are imported, you'll want to install our custom templates.
On your computer, find the "My Documents" or "Documents" folder. Once inside, find the NinjaTrader 7 folder. Inside this folder you will see another folder named "templates". (Documents>NinjaTrader 7>templates)
Open the "templates" folder, and manually drop in the 2 .xml files from the DPXToolkit folder. (DPXMain.xml and DPXSniper.xml) You could optionally copy and paste those files into the folder.
Now, restart NinjaTrader.
Double click NQ from the left-hand column. (Or whichever instrument you prefer to trade)
Change the following settings to match the picture below:
Finally, click OK and you should have our main trading chart.
REMEMBER, by default our template utilizes the color white for some lines, so you will want to right click your chart and choose 'properties' to choose a dark color for your background (we use the darkest gray.) Alternatively, you can edit the colors of the indicators on your chart.
The second template included in our toolkit is called "DPXSniper." This template is to be used with regular RENKO bars (not the custom unirenko bars) and you should choose a "brick size" of 2. Open this is as a separate chart so you can better see the tick-by-tick action as it unfolds at the micro level.
Make sure to save your workspace when you close NinjaTrader!
