ZN Move per Swing

Hello All,

Well, this will show my lack o' coding skill!

I'm trying to get a plot to the DataBox that will show the most recent Swing High to Swing Low move of the ZN in a dollar difference format.

I haven't yet become familiar with the ZN tick size / dollar equivalent per tick move, etc. I didn't specify (if instrument == ZN) and I can't even get the Swings to give me the current price in my print command.

Any help making this work will be appreciated!

Look at SwingTemp, it already calculates the number of ticks in a move. Then just modify that by adding a new text label next to that to calculate Ticks * PointValue.


double pointvalue 
Instrument.MasterInstrument.PointValue * (NbrTicksInMove TickSize
If you need more help let us know.


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

repeat after me:

" parts changer is to mechanic as...

zeller4 is to programmer"

Mike, thanks for the lead, added drawtext upper left - not sure if it's in the right spot (lines of code) and it doesn't update with each swing update yet...

screenshot shows 12tick move in box but 14 tick move of current swing

thanks for yours or anybody's help
