    Hi,

    Is there a way to show the instrument name and time intervals as a watermark on the chart?

      Someone was kind enough to write this.

      You’ll find it in the middle of the post whose hyperlink is attached. It’’s called mywatermarks.

      I use it on all my charts.

        I downloaded the mywarwemarks, but it shows the v stock name, only, not the time interval, such as 15, 30, 60 minutes. Is this what you get sgordet?
        Regards

          Note this file is MyWaterMarksV2. If you download and import it, it will not replace the original version. You'll have to pick which one you want and can delete the original indicator.
          Thank you, this is so incredibly helpful!

              Hello eddiekellertri,

              Yes this is certainly possible.

              Use Draw.TextFixed to draw the symbol and use Instrument.FullName as the string to draw. (Instrument.FullName is a string reflecting the symbol the indicator is attached to.)

              I.E.

              Draw.TextFixed(this, "SymbolTag", Instrument.FullName, TextPosition.BottomLeft);

              Other Draw.TextFixed overloads can be found below.

              https://ninjatrader.com/support/help..._textfixed.htm

              If you have questions or would like some further direction creating an indicator that draws this text on a chart, please open a new thread in our NinjaScript Indicator Development forums.

                Can someone help me how to change this indicator so that it will function with each data source on a chart? Currently it will only show the first instrument in the data series. Changing the input series in the drop down menu only changes the panel in which information for the first instrument is displayed. I would like to have multiple instances of this indicator on each panel. Thanks

                  Hello tffmd123,

                  Have you used this watermark script that works on multiple panels? It sounds like it may do what you are looking for.

                    Hi,

                    Is it possible to change this indicator such that it displays the instrument description? Thanks
