    NT8 Stock Pivots indicator

    Hello,

    I'm having a weird issue with the NT 8 stock pivots indicator.

    Because I want to plot daily or weekly pivots, but only have 3 days of plot data on my renko chart, I added a 4 hour series of the same symbol to the chart, but for a few weeks. I set the colours to transparent so it does not plot and set it to show in the same window as the main data series of the same symbol. I tell pivots to use this data series. If you do this, S1, etc may plot with a line that goes across the whole screen, may plot with a line that is miniscule (about 1mm across), or may not plot at all, depending on the symbol.

    It seems to be related to the size of the hidden bar, as if I change from 240 minute to 15 minute, the pivot appears, but takes the full width of the screen on NQ for example.

    Any idea why this is? Any workaround to keep the plot consistent size and sat at the right of the screen?

    Thanks.

    Hello,
    Thank you for writing in.

    Glad to assist. To test, please double click on the pivots indicator to open the Properties window. Next, under Visual, select the Auto Scale box > Press OK. Test for issue via changing symbol and interval.

    If pivot lines do not show, please right click on the chart > select Data Series to verify the Days to Load value to verify the custom value had not returned to default.

    We look forward to assisting further.

      Hi,

      Thanks for the response, but some missunderstanding I think. It is not a scale to screen issue and enabling this option with weekly pivots just shows a huge area and price action becomes a line. Auto scale is therefore not an option (but it does not change the issue anyway).

      To replicate, try this

      Add a primary data series, say 10 seconds, 3 days to your chart.
      Add a secondary data series, say 240 minute, 2 week to your chart

      Both these data series in the same window, same scale, 240 minute set to transparent (i do not want to see if).

      Now try to add weekly pivot based on the data series 2 with enough data to show that pivot.

      You will see odd behaviour and the pivots, if they appear to the right of the screen at all will either be very small, or almost the width of the screen.

          Hi,

          Kinnetick.

          See attached daily pivot. With pivots set to 240 minute series ES 03-18

          then change indicator to point to renko series ES 03-18, _exact_ same screen area.

          Sometimes they are much smaller. Sometimes not at all.

          Regardless of the series, if the same underlying instrument, indicator plot should be consistent width and position on right of chart?

          Because of the way the attachments uploaded, I see number 1 as the ES renko and expected size. The other one is 240 minute hidden series.
