    Capture Which Chart The Trade Was Executed From

    Is there a way to capture which chart (primarily the chart time frame or volume, etc.) a trade was executed from? For example, if I enter a trade from the 2 minute chart-I would want that recorded so I could later analyze results by chart time frame (I am using time frame as the example-but it could be volume, range, ticks, etc.)

    Hello Jim-Boulder,

    Thank you for your post.

    You may plot the execution on your chart by right mouse clicking within your chart-->Properties-->Plot executions-->set to "TextAndMarker" or "MarkersOnly"-->Click OK.

    These markers will be visible on all time frame charts when changing intervals.

    Please let me know if I may be of further assistance.

      Thanks

      Thanks for the response---what I am seeking is away to review the trades (like in the account performance grid)--and have the chart time frame that I traded that trade from---in tabular data mode so I can export to excel...

      I hope this clarifies what I am looking for...I am assuming this woiuld have to be done programmically--so really what I should ask is whether NT 'knows' which chart I was on when I executed a chart using chart trading...is that info available in an object or property?

        Hello Jim-Boulder,

        Unfortunately this is not supported at this time within NinjaTrader. I will forward this to our development team for future considerations.

          FWIW, I use Print stmts to an output window to track certain events and always put a header at the beginning for when I have multiple charts open.

          Code:
          header = "[" + (Bars.Period.Value).ToString() +    " " + Bars.Period.Id.ToString() + "] ";
          If you use an Alert, instrument & time are added for you. Otherwise, you can add time
          Code:
          header + Time[0].ToString("MM/dd HH:mm:ss")
          and probably instrument tho I've never bothered.
