    Plot a line above or bellow price

    My stops are certain amount of ticks either bellow or above the current price.
    I did that very easily in ninjatrader 7
    If Falling = False ( that means the bars are going up ) then draw a dot on current bar at high-8 ticks.
    Same but opposite for the short stops.

    It works perfect but...

    when I tried to do the same exact thing in ninjatrader 8 it did not work - did not plot anything ( i did enable the strategy ).

    Huge thank you in advance.

    Any idea why ? Click image for larger version

    Hello Ben989,

    Thank you for your post.

    Could you supply a code sample of how you're trying to draw the dot?

    Do you receive any errors relating to the script in the Log tab of the Control Center?

    Thanks in advance; I look forward to assisting you further.

        I am not getting any errors, it just does not plot anything.
        This is a great strategy for everyone who wants to plot their stops an X amount of ticks either bellow or above the High/Low of the current price.

          Hello Ben989,

          Thank you for your reply.

          I noticed after changing the color of the dot it draws that it did actually plot a single dot - this is because you aren't giving a unique tag to each dot drawn. The NinjaTrader 7 version uses CurrentBar to accomplish this within its tag name and you can do the same in NinjaTrader 8 - add another set to the Tag Name for the Dot that has Misc > CurrentBar set for its value to make each tag unique.

          Please let us know if we may be of further assistance to you.

                Hello Ben989,

                Thank you for your reply.

                Sure! You'd want to adjust the Tag field for your dot drawing object to look like this:

                      Hello Ben989,

                      Thank you for your reply.

                      You've exported this as a compiled assembly, so I'm unable to view your code. Please try exporting again, making sure not to check the "Export as a Compiled Assembly" box, then attach the resulting .zip file to your reply.

                      Thanks in advance; I look forward to assisting you further.

                        so sorry-
                        i noticed that i am getting only 1 dot instead of a dot for every bar, also the location is wrong- i put 8 ticks bellow the current bar high and it plots one dot somewhere lol.
                        Again Huge Thanks

                          Hello Ben989,

                          Thank you for your reply.

                          You've just typed in CurrentBar[0] into the field. You need to click the Set button on the right of the field and select Current Bar from the Misc folder.

                          From what I can see they do look like they're plotting in the proper place, however - to do 8 ticks below, you'd need to set it to -8 ticks from the current high.

                          Please let us know if we may be of further assistance to you.

                            Thanks again Kate- do it all but still no dots - no idea why- it was so easy on ninja 7 took me a minute, sorry for all the bothering but would not be able to do that without your help.
                            here is the updated version- where i chose currentbar[0] from the drop down menu and put -8 ticks at the Y.

                              Thank you for your reply.

                              The dots were actually plotting, you just had it set to be the High[0] + (High[0] + (-8 * TickSize)) for the offset, so they were plotting outside the viewable bounds of the screen. I've corrected that and they should plot 8 ticks below the bar high now.
