    Show Indicators on top of Order/Stop/Profit Lines?

    Hi,

    I have indicators that display beside the current bar and I have the z-order set to show them above everything else on my chart which is fine. The problem is that they don't display on top of order/stop and profit lines so I can't read the text correctly. Can I do something via ninjascript to force this or is there another way?

    Thanks

    Hello PaulMcG,
    Welcome to the forum and I am happy to assist you.

    Unfortunately the stop/target lines will be on top of the indicator / price bars and you cannot change it.

    As an alternative you can shorten or lengthen the order display bar length by following the below steps:
    • Right click on the Chart Trader
    • In the context menu click on Chart Trader Properties
    • In the Chart Trader Properties dialog set an appropriate value for the field "Order display bar length (% of chart).

      Ok thanks for your help. That won't really help because I need the order line etc across my screen when I trade. I have 2 ideas that could be potential workarounds but I don't know if it's possible in ninja script.

      1) Is to make my indicator values (they are numbers on screen) jump to a different location on the chart when a order is placed e.g instead of being beside the close it could jump a tick higher or lower than the last bar. Is that possible? Could ninjascript be used to know if I have for e.g a sell or buy order active?

      2) Is to have a indicator that would again recognize when a order is active but this time add 3 lines extending out left from the order/profit and stop lines on the chart. That way I could make the actual order lines take up a small % of the chart as you suggested but still have the lines to look at against my chart and overlay the indicator lines with my current indicators.

      Thanks again for your help and suggestions.

        Hello PaulMcG,
        Unfortunately there are no supported codes to recognize the order via the indicators.
