I have one that can plot rectangular zones you can define in Excel. I use Excel as i can define many properties such as the opacity, Heigth of zone in ticks, color and comment etc. in a convenient way. Then i just need to copy/paste the lines that define my zones in a text file and the indicator reads and displays them on any chart where it is used.

That's something which i have paid for but i am willing to give it to the community. Sam08 is the programmer who did it but he has not yet published it.

Oh! esprit de Sam si tu es là...

Maybe this is what you look for

There is something in the download section which allows to add alerts to used defined lines. Not tested.

https://futures.io/free_downloads/ninjatrader-7/indicators/462-download.html?view

Otherwise your indicator request is pretty simple. I understand that you want to enter a value via indicator panel, such as 830.5 for TF and then just draw a horizontal line at this level. You can do this manually, but I understand that you prefer to have an indicator that plots those levels.

-> which version of NinjaTrader do you use?
-> how many levels do you want to add?
-> what do you want to use it for?
-> does it need alerts?

Can be coded in less than 5 minutes.

You are right, I simply had a look at the trading platform of @Zsolt, which is NinjaTrader. The forum label is not easy to see, when you open a post.

Thank you guys for the quick response, i am going to test the suggestions, and yea i can easily code this one in ninja, but this is for Metatrader, and i dont have time to understand that lang too

The problem source is my point and figure indicator to metatrader always clearing the drawed elements, so i want to draw them from indicator maybe it will be good.
