Convert a value in ticks

An hard question! Does anyone know how, in NT scripting language, to convert a decimal value into the relative futures tick price?

Eg.: Convent 1850,68757 into the relative ES futures equivalent 1850,75

Add this method to your strategy/indicator:

 
Code
private double nPrice(double ThePrice) //Normalized Price
        {
            int Temp = (int)Math.Round(ThePrice / TickSize);
            return ((double)Temp * TickSize);
        }
You call it like this:

 
Code
double priceToEnter = nPrice(1850.68757);

A Trick Question !

The answer to your question is actually a lot more complicated than you may realize.

Read this thread, specifically FatTail's answer to get a feel for what your up against...
