I am trying to figure out how to shift the plot of an indicator that plots as a part of a strategy in NT. Basically I just want to plot the value of the indicator for the previous bar at the current bar. It seems like this should be easy to do, but I guess I am just lost at trying to make it happen.
Basically there is a portion of my strategy that compares whether the current bar crosses above the MAX indicator from the previous bar. This isn't really an issue as far as the strategy goes, but I would also like the indicator to visually plot on the chart in this offset location.
Ideally, I would simply like to plot something like "MAX(10)," but I know this doesn't really work in this simple manner. Would I have to use something like ZOrder? I have looked for information on how to use ZOrder, but the NT help guide is pretty useless when it comes to this.
I hope this is some simple "do this one thing, you idiot" sort of task, and not something that involves trying to modify indicators or anything.
Let's be honest. There are TONS of dumb questions But that question was not one of them...
