Ninjatrader Chart Currency Ticker (or possibly anything ticker…)

By December 14, 2017Tech, Trading

pjsCurrencyTicker- A chart/instrument ticker indicator for Ninjatrader 8

OK – It’s not even Friday, and I’m coding. /ES is dead (it’s currently almost Christmas as I write this and volume has dried up).

What I wanted…

Very simple. To display a currency, or multiple currencies in the top right hand of my chart. For instance, 6E on my DAX chart, 6B on my FSTE chart…  You get the idea.

DAX with 6E ticker, showing daily change

 

 

So there you go.

The little symbol to the right of the text ticks up or down for each movement. Red text is down on the day, green is up.

To set the symbol to show, edit the indicator options/properties once installed. You’ll see 6E set as a default, as an example.  There is an ‘offset’ option also. This is the number of lines down from the top right of the chart to display the ticker. This is handy if you want to show multiple tickers or already have something in that space.

What do you think? Have any ideas? Let me know in the comments section below.

    Hi,
    I just loaded this indicator and put up 6J. It seems that the last 2 digits of the price fall off. It shows 0.0087 when the closing quote Friday 1/5/2018 was 0.0088775.

    Thanks you
