    Hello Bill,

    Thank you for your post.

    You would need to direct your question to the developer specifically for this kind of request as we do not know the nature of how this is programmed and operates.

        Bill,

        If you can find where the points is coming from and being set in the code then you could take that total and divide that by the TickSize

        Example -
        Trading ES - TickSize of .25

        You have 3.5 points divided by .25 = 14 ticks

        double ticksValue = pointValue / TickSize;

            Bill,

            Apologies, I thought I attached a link for TickSize in my last post.

            TickSize is a NinjaScript property which gets the Instruments Tick Size that its being applied to.
            http://www.ninjatrader.com/support/h...l?ticksize.htm

            The other items are arbitrary items to show you the method of converting to number of ticks.

              The indicator has a custom plot that

              - formats the ATR data
              - measures the length of the strings for display in the data table

              The relevant code section of the anaCurrentDayOHL are lines 2570 - 2721. The ATR is displayed in points for futures and stocks, formatted in 32nds for interest rate futures and mostly displayed in pips for FOREX instruments. If you wish to display the ticksize instead of points, you would need to recode that section of the indicator (about 150 lines).

                  I have updated the indicators today. The new update has

                  - the CME holiday calendar for 2015
                  - improved price markers for US interest rate futures
                  - improved formatting for FOREX instruments with JPY as the quote currency
