    Chart Trader Entry and Exit Text and Arrows

    Hello, After I place trades using Chart Trader, it leaves behind all this text for my entries and exits as well as colored arrows. This is very helpful when I'm in a trade, but after I move on to another trade, all that text and the arrows get in my way, especially when some of the indicators I use print their own text and symbols on the chart.

    So is there a way to get rid of the text and colored arrows that print on the chart, after I have finished a trade?

    Hi i2w8am9ii2,

    Thanks for the post.

    Please right-click in your chart and select "Data Series". In the right pane, scroll down and locate the "Plot executions" property. Here you have three options:

    * DoNotPlot - no past orders will plot on the chart
    * MarkersOnly - past orders will only plot visually
    * TextAndMarker - past orders will plot visually and with price info


    Please choose your desired setting and click on "OK". For more information on working with price data please visit the help guide link below:

        Hello,
        Is it possible to only remove the text and arrows above the bars, but not the arrows on the horizontal axis where the trade took place?

          Hello otislauwaert,

          Thanks for the post.

          The only display options are the ones mentioned by our colleague NinjaTrader_PatrickG in post #2.

          Please let me know if I can assist further.

            Up until a few months ago (before versions 38 and 39 of NT 7) TextAndMarker worked as expected., with the chart template settings you recommend. It worked for several years. For me, it no longer works with live data (Continuum) but still works with Market Replay Data.

            Why would that be? What can you suggest? I am no longer confident that my live trades are being executed.

              Hello Xenophon99,

              Thanks for the note.

              Please confirm that Plot executions are set to TextAndMarker in the Data Series menu.

              If it is and you are not getting execution markers, please take the steps below to reset your database:
              • Disconnect NinjaTrader from any open connections via File > Disconnect.
              • From the NinjaTrader Control Center window select the menu Tools > Options.
              • Select the 'Data' tab.
              • Press the 'Reset DB' button.
              • Press the 'OK' button.
              After you have done this, please test again.

              I look forward to assisting further.
              Chris L.NinjaTrader Customer Service
