    Actual price horizontal line

    Hi there

    I am a Ninjatrader newbie and I have tried to make this work, without luck and hence my questions below. I have been used to Metatrader so I still struggle to understand this new platform.... :

    1) How do I make my chart display a horizontal line of the current price? Obviously this line will move with the price....I have looked in settings but cant find it..

    2) Placing a trade manually with trade management.

    I want to place a simple manual trade, which automatically sets a SL of 10 ticks and a TP of 100 ticks. When price is 10 pips in profit, the SL will be moved to BE. How can I do this? Do I need a script/indicator or?

    Thanks a lot for any input.

    Regarding item 1 priceline. A couple of ways to do this, here is but one.

    Add an SMA to the chart, period of 1, set CaculateOnBarClose=false. Change "plotstyle" from line to H-Line. Done.

    Hope this helps.

      Hello,

      Thank you for your post.

      1. Please download the attached zip file then go to the Control Center-->File-->Utilities-->Import NinjaScript-->Select the zip file-->Open. After importing this file the indicator will be listed as "DH_HorizPriceLine" within the indicator list.

      2. This can be achieved by attaching an ATM Strategy to your entry order which will allow you to predefine your Profit Target, Stop Loss and Auto Breakeven.

      I have provided a link below to our Help Guide that goes over ATM Strategy Parameters.

      I have also provided a link below to our Help Guide that goes over the Auto Breakeven and Auto Trail features.

        Hello,

        Is there a DH_HorizPriceLine version for NT 8 ?

        Thanks
