Default Is there a daily profit/loss indicator plotted on lower indicator area?

Hi guys,

I have seen in some videos that when some people demoing an automated strategy, they have an indicator on their lower study area, showing accumulated profit/loss. That indicator would be very handy!

I wonder if it is a out of box or widely available indicator?

Thank you!

If you could provider more information, I would be happy to see if I can find something. The issue is I am not sure which indicator you are referring to currently.

Hi please see the below picture as example. The lower study has a daily PnL plot called "etsProDailyPnLPlot" indicator.

I think this daily PnL indicator is their in house product. But I wonder if there are similar indicator that does the same trick.

Thank you!

Yes Leon, this would be a custom product / script of theirs, it's not a default NT supplied study in use here. I would not be aware of anything similar already shared here unfortunately.

Default There is a sample for this already

As a sample of how you can include P&L information, take a look at this:
