    Horizontal Line that shows price data

    I am fairly new to NT8 and I'm trying to determine how to get a horizontal line that shows me the price level where that line is drawn.

    This is simple is all the other charting packages I have used. You select the tool, draw a line, and it either shows you the price level automatically or gives you and option to turn price data on/off for that line. Then, as you move the line up/down, you see the new price level that correlates to the position of the line. Unless I am missing something, the line drawing tool in NT8 does not seem to include this common feature.

    I did find an "add on" that does this but is only shows 2 decimal places which is useless for currency futures and other contracts that have prices data in multiple digits to the right of the decimal.

    Is there another solution without having to look at the data box and manually add that data using a text box every time you draw or move a line on the chart?

    Thanks

    Hello,

    Thank you for your post.

    Glad to assist. You are correct regarding the line value in the axis, this would require a custom item.

    Below is a link to the indicator sharing section of the NinjaTrader Ecosystem, I would suggest looking through there for what you're looking for. I did attempt to find an options to accomplish this but was unsuccessful.

    If you are a programmer, our NinjaScript team may provide you links to samples which would help you write the indicator yourself, or I can have someone reach out with a list of third parties that would be interested in building this for you.

    We look forward to assisting further.
