NinjaTrader Tips – Displaying Price and NYSE Tick on One Chart


A recent article (http://yourtradingcoach.com/trading-process-and-strategy/reader-trade-review-es-test-of-resistance/) included the following image, which led to an email question asking "how do you display both price and the tick in the one chart, instead of in two separate windows?"

ES chart with attached NYSE Tick 

To display both price and NYSE Tick together in one window:

  1. Go to this page: http://yourtradingcoach.com/trading-business/ninjatrader-tips-and-techniques/
  2. Scroll down to the video titled "Adding Indicators to a Chart based upon Different Timeframes"
  3. You do not need the whole video… just the first 1:25 minutes.
  4. Note in this video how the presenter adds two data series to a single chart window – an ES 1 minute chart and an ES 5 minute chart.
  5. Follow the exact same procedure adding two data series, the first being the market you wish to display and the second being the NYSE Tick.  So in my previous article I displayed two data series – ES 03-15 (1-min) and ^TICK (1-min). 

You can follow this same procedure for combining any two different data series
into one window.

Happy trading,

NinjaTrader Tips and Techniques

As NinjaTrader is my primary platform (and also appears to be for many of my readers) I thought I'd add a page to my website with any tips and techniques that I've come across. The intent is to not cover anything that should be obvious from use of the primary toolbar or menu items (such as how to open a chart or create and save workspaces) but rather to share (a) anything that caused me troubles and required a search to find the answer, plus (b) anything cool that I come across but wasn't aware of.

Good Places to Search
