As you can appreciate each platform and data feed delivers the data in a slightly different way which is then reflected in the indicators we can develop for each platform. In the case of indicators such as the Currency Strength Indicator and the Currency Matrix for example, the data we use here is comparable across the platforms and therefore we can develop identical indicators which can then be replicated in an identical way ( the same is true for the Trend Monitor, Trend Dots, Pivots, Volatility etc). However for some indicators the data feed can vary, with some feeds giving us additional flexibility to offer indicators which are unique to the platform. One example here is the TickSpeedometer which is unique to Ninjatrader and which we cannot replicate on MT4 as the data feed on MT4 does not offer us the tick history to create the indicator. On other platforms in the future we will be able to replicate the TickSpeedometer indicator such as Tradestation and Esignal as the platforms have this flexibility.

Moving to the support and resistance indicators for MT4 and NinjaTrader, again this was governed by the data feed and manipulation of the data to create the indicators. The two indicators work in a similar way but with NinjaTrader, the Kinetick data feed also gives us the option to add further details to these levels such as the variation in colors and also the number of times a level has acted as accumulation or distribution. Both are based on the price action and behaviour at reversal points, with the data feed itself and the data history then allowing us to be more flexible in the way the data is then presented. This is not to say one is better than the other – it is simply a question of presentation and style dictated by the data feed on the platform.
