Default make a larger scale


In the scale of the sum indicator after a certain amount of bar it is impossible to see the numbers.
For exemple in the chart right lower 10M.
Its impossible to know if its 10 000 240 or 10 990 000.

Is there a way we can enlarge the scale?

It is not possible to expand the SUM value which is has been compressed into a smaller format to accommodate a large number. I'll submit a feature request to the Development Team to implement this feature into the SUM indicator. The tracking number is SFT-3420.

This would definitely be possible via custom NinjaScript. If you'd like more information about how to program this yourself, or more information about third-party developers who could create this for you, please contact us via email at PlatformSupport[AT]NinjaTrader[DOT].com. If you do decide to write in, make sure to provide a brief description of what you're looking for and a link to this forum post.

Thanks for the reply.

I would like to find a coder to make custom programming but after talking with most of them in the ecosystem list i came to the conclusion that not many of them are competent, most of them are expensive and not in my area.

Is it difficult to modify by yourself?

You could accomplish this with FormatPriceMarker() and then modifying the string. I am including the relevant help guide document below as well as the public msdn link for "Standard Numeric Format Strings"

Help Guide - FormatPriceMarker()
