NT 7 Counting the amount of bars in a swing


I am looking for a very simple indicator. What they have in tradestation is the ability to draw a trendline and you have the option for it to label to bar count. For example, it will count the bars from the start of trendline to the end. I am getting tired of having to count the bars in each swing, is there in indicator that will tell me the bar count if i input the start and end bar?

I don't use it, but I am pretty sure the PriceActionSwing thread has a bunch of indicators which do what you are wanting for NT.



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.
