    Price Type option for NT8??

    Hi, is it possible in NT8 to set the price type to something other than close...like median of typical? I found this section below in NT7 but can't find the option in NT8. Thanks.

    Hello 90bideven,

    Thanks for your post.

    In NinjaTrader8 you would need to use/specify the price type in your code, for example Median[0] or Typical[0] or High[0], etc.

    With reference to the code-breaking change table, under NT7 pricetype the NT8 table specifies: "Default input is now strictly set through the UI. All objects will allow to select another input value. If your object has requirements to calculate on a specific price value, this should be hard coded to the bar value instead of preventing users to change the input."

      Appreciate the response...unfortunately with limited programming capability, this is probably out of my reach.

        Hello 90bideven,

        Thanks for your reply.

        As you were showing Ninjascript I was assuming you were working in code.

        If you are wanting to find the price type selector when using an indicator, you can select it in the "input series" of the indicator in the indicator panel, please see the help guide here: https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...indicators.htm Please also observe the note: "Note: To take advantage of this feature NinjaScript indicators will need to implement the Input ISeries as their main data input."

          Thanks Paul, yes I understand the "input series" in an indicator, I just wanted to compare the median, or typical price for instance of an instrument to its standard calculated closing price. As I recall it was easier to do in NT7.

            Hello 90bideven,

            Thanks for your reply.

            I clearly am not understanding what you want to do so if you can recall what you did in NT7 to "compare the median, or typical price for instance of an instrument to its standard calculated closing price." I would be glad to advise how to do that in NT8.

              OK thanks, ultimately I want to plot two moving averages on the same instrument...ES let's say, 987 tick. Let's say I put on a 13 period EMA on the regularly calculated ES chart. I want to put on a 13 EMA to the median or typical price of the 987 tick ES as well...so I can compare the two MA's. Thanks.

                Hello 90bideven,

                Thanks for your reply.

                Yes, that is just as easily done in NT8 as it was in NT7.
