    decimal places on y axis of chart

    Can the y axis decimal places on the chart be adjusted, for example FX is set at 4 places , can this be changed to 5 places?

    Hello 35trader,

    Thank you for your post.

    This would require altering the Tick Size of the instrument you are viewing by going to the NinjaTrader Control Center > Tools > Instrument Manager > search for the instrument you wish to alter > double click on the instrument on the search results to open the Instrument Editor > once the Instrument Editor opens you can adjust the Tick Size in the Definition tab > OK.

    Changing the Forex instrument from 0.0001 to 0.00001 will adjust the decimal place, but you may wish to change to another Tick Size.

    For information on the Instrument Editor please visit the following link: http://www.ninjatrader.com/support/h...nstruments.htm

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

      I tried this already and switched to .00001, but the chart y axis still plotted in a 4 decimal number.

        Hello 35trader,

        Can you please go to Control Center-->Tools-->Options-->Data-tab and set 'Quote currencies (FX) in' to TenthPip. Forex instruments will now use 5 decimals.

        Subsequently charts will reflect prices in 5 decimals providing on the scale. If you do not see 5 decimals initially, please click and hold your left mouse button on the right side on the price axis and move upwards.

          Dear Jason

          I have done both things and still the price only has 4 decimals. Why this could be?

          You can see in the video above that I move the right bar up also.

          Please help

            Hello Belikewater,

            Can you please tell me to what data feed provider you connect in NinjaTrader.

            Do you see 5 decimals if you select a forex instrument in the Dynamic SuperDOM?

                It works fine on my end. Can you please double check if 'Quote currencies (FX) in' is set to TenthPip.

                    Can you please shut down NinjaTrader and navigate to the folder below.

                    C:\-->Users-->*Windows user account*-->Documents-->NinjaTrader 7-->db

                    Delete the "cache" folder.

                    Start NinjaTrader and create a new EURUSD chart. Check if prices show a fifth decimal when adjusting the price axis.

                        Does it work if you create a new chart for a different forex instrument?

                        Do you connect to the free Kinetick EOD connection or do you have a subscription?

                        If you go to Control Center-->Tools-->Instrument Manager, what tick size do you see listed for the EURUSD?
