    Truncate horizontal price lines on 1 Tick Chart?

    Hi there,

    Is it possible to truncate or shorten the horizontal price lines on a 1 tick, line chart? Please see below. I trade the ES off a 1 tick chart, and often, price will remain at the same level for a long period of time, as the chart rolls to the left. This "pushes off" old price action I consider relevant for my style of trading.

    Does NinjaTrader have the functionality to simply plot 1 tick price changes on the aforementioned chart, without consideration for time? That way, when price sits at a given level for a period of time, the chart wouldn't continue to plot a flat line and roll to the left?

    Chart settings are as follows (Type: Tick, Value: 1, Chart style: line on close).

    Thank you

    Here's an example of what I mean:

    A NT chart of "Range Bar" value of 1 might get you close....

      Hello Veritasig,

      Thank you for your post.

      I understand that type of display you're looking for. This is likely something which you could achieve through custom programming. If you are not a programmer yourself any of the NinjaScript consultants listed at the following link could code this project for you: http://www.ninjatrader.com/partners....pt-Consultants

        Thanks, Sledge. I considered the 1 tick range. Problem is, it "hides" movement within the 1 tick bar, which sometimes can be relevant. 1 tick Renko's are decent, too, while on the subject. But I prefer the actual line tick, for accuracy.

        Thanks Kyle. I will talk to the programmers!
