Question Two different Data series on one chart (panel?)


I believe I asked this question once before but I can't recall the answer..Sorry about that.
In NT 7, is there a way to add a Renko 4 candle to a Range bar chart?
I would like the indicators to continue calculating and plotting on the range data but superimpose a Renko 4 brick on top to see the price action, I could make the Range bars transparent, otherwise, a separate panel for the Renko would be acceptable.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Hello Javier,

Thank you for your post.

This is possible in NinjaTrader 7 to add two data series on the same chart.


However, with Range and Renko the chart may appear odd with the candles compressed in some areas.
This is because the chart is trying to line both data series up at the same time.

Regarding your indicators, once applied to a multi-data series chart you can change their input source.
  • Right click in your chart -> Indicators
  • Select the indicator
  • Select the 'Input Series' button and press the '...' button
  • The Input Series window will then show you the available input data.
  • Select the data series you wish to plot the indicators off of.
  • Press 'OK' on the Input Series and Indicators windows when finished.

Thanks for your prompt reply.

I followed your instructions with no problems but now I have to get used to the way the charts gives out the information.

Thanks again.
