First of all you need to download MP-TPO and installed it once. >> Download NT8 TPO
If you have other Order Flow indicators like Gomi or Bell Order Flow / TPO, the same need to be first downloaded and installed.
Once done, Open NinjaTrader 8 >>
Go to the Tools >> Options
Various Settings :-
For Market Balance/Order Flow - "Show Tick Reply" can help however, it takes a long time to load the tick replay, especially if you have a lot of Tick data. (Minimum Recommended RAM = 8 GB, minimum Recommended CPU = i5).
"Record Live Data as Historical" uses a lot of resources of your machine so if you have lesser RAM (must be greater than 16 GB & i7), else this option is not recommended.
For Market Profile - These options are not required to be selected.
Let's Open the TPO chart now.. > New >> Chart >> NIFTY 01-17 (NIFTY_I)
Below selection for loading Tick data saved, else not required.
Please keep in mind Tick Replay replays the LTP and only stores the best bid/ask price at the time of the last trade event. You can think of this as the equivalent of the bid/ask price at the time the respective symbol was traded.
Now click on OK and Load the chart ..
For Market Profile (TPO):-
Once you load the chart please go to the indicator settings >>
Now Apply and check...
So you need to use these settings whenever an indicator needs it, especially for Order Flow & Market Balance TPO/GOMI/BELL TPO indicators in NT8.
