    Target Text

    I am wondering how to add text to my entry points. I have the target code but would like to say under the entry that the target is @ XXXX. Is this possible? Would think it would be pretty simple but I am just transitioning to ninja script. Thanks

    Hello tommyj, thanks for writing in.

    That can be done by calling Draw.Text from OnExecutionUpdate, or Draw.Text right after you perform the entry.

    The default execution markers also do this automatically. These can be set up through the Data Series menu.

    Please let me know if you have any questions on this material.

      So I have multiple entries that have different targets, I would think the draw.text linked to my entries would be the best route. Would this be done best after my entry/target/stop code? or should I set it up through the data series menu

        Hello tommyj, thanks for your reply.

        The default execution plots will mark the entry price of each entry separately. If you would like to make your own logic that plots entries, you would need to detect the entry from OnExecutionUpdate. The most straight forward way of doing this would be to give your entries unique signal names e.g. EnterLong("MyEntry1");, EnterLong("MyEntry2") then check for the name in OnExecutionUpdate:

        if(execution.Name == "MyEntry1")
        {
        //Draw execution
        }
