    Share Horizontal price on higher timeframes with lower timeframe of SAME instrument

    Hi,
    Is there a way to share horizontal lines with other charts with the same instrument?
    For example I would like to draw horizontal levels on say on the daily and weekly MSFT charts
    and be able for them to automatically appear on the intraday chart so that I can see previous strong support and resistance?
    From what I can see the Ninjatrader 8 platform doesn't support this so can it be done programmatically?
    Does anyone know of a commercial product that can let you dp this?
    Thanks,
    iq

    Hello iq200,

    Thanks for your post.

    Yes, you can create what are called global draw objects that will appear on all charts of the same instrument within the workspace. There is even an option to allow global objects to cross workspaces and show on all charts of the same instrument in every workspace.

    In the case of a Horizontal line you would use the Horizontal line drawing tool, place the line as you wish, double click the line to see is drawing object properties and change the 'Attach to" to all charts (of the same instrument)selection. As an aside, you can create templates that would allow you to have many configurations (line colors, sizes dashstyle, etc).

    To read more about how to do this, please see the help guide section, "Understanding local vs. global drawing objects" on this page: https://ninjatrader.com/support/help..._tools__ob.htm

    On that same link, please also see, "Understanding drawing object properties" and "Understanding Drawing Object templates".

    If you want to do this programmatically, that can also be done as the Draw methods have bool parameter for placing the line globally.and alos works well with selected templates.
