Add-on for NinjaTrader 8 Trading Platform.

I. Add-on Installation/Update

  1. Remove previous assembly if you have one installed:

    • Run your NinjaTrader, go to the 'Tools' menu and click 'Remove NinjaScript Assembly…' menu item.
    • In the list of installed assemblies appeared select the indicator you wish to update and press 'Remove' button.
  2. Restart NinjaTrader.

  3. Download the latest assembly (.zip file) from the this page, from the homepage or request a direct link by email.

  4. Install downloaded assembly:

    • Go to "Tools" → "Import" → "NinjaScript Add-On…", select downloaded .zip file and press "Open". Then if the installation was correct you will see the success message.
    • Restart NinjaTrader!

Note: Various Dt add-ons are relying on the same "DiscoTrading.Net48.Common.dll" library. NinjaScript Assembly contains the most recent version of the library, so you have to click 'Yes' when asked for replacement of the file during installation.
Replace the common dll library

Remember, it is required to restart NinjaTrader after add-on installation before you can add a just installed indicator to a chart.

dt DOM Bricks Catcher


Depth of Market also known as Level II or Order Book is a specific market data that provides information on the number of limit orders (available static liquidity) at different price levels.

Bid price is the price at which buyers are willing to purchase the product (futures contracts or securities).
Ask (Offer) price is the price at which sellers are willing to sell the product.
Best-Bid-Offer (BBO) or Level I represents the lowest ask and highest bid available at the time.

DOM Bricks Catcher is a simple, fast and handy tool that continuously scans the DOM for big limit orders and places detected orders on the price chart.

The indicator functions only on real-time data (live data) and does not plot any values on historical data as the required Level II data is only available in real-time.

An actual depth of Level II price levels seen by NinjaTrader and the indicator may vary widely depending on the data vendor and traded instrument (futures contract). For example, it may be provided more than 100 levels of depth for E-Mini S&P futures, while for some other futures it may only be available just 10 levels of depth, so the scan region amounts to the ten bid price levels and ten ask price levels nearest to the current price.

Force Chart Refresh — If checked then the chart will be refreshed each time as new Big Size (aka Brick) is found out in the DOM.

The forcing may be recommended to use if you trade a non-liquid instrument where trades occurs not so often and even price (best bid-offer level) can move without any trading activity.

Clear All Bricks — Purges all “Brick” markers gathered during trading time.
