Hi Everyone.

I compute various values in my spreadsheet (I use lotus 123 but I could move them to Excel or to a csv file).
I would like to be able to move these values into the Ninja indicator automatically (I currently type them in).

I have several ES charts of different time frames and I put some values in one and some in another.

Here is an example of a 3 minute ES chart with the values
1284.50
1282.00
1278.50
1276.00

The dotted lines are these values which I have entered into the Constant Lines indicator (I used Ninja 6.5)

many thanks,

@aquarian1

Hi aquariun1,

Find attached the indicator you were looking for. I modified the Chartnote indicator from monpere, it is in the regular download section so no problems if you are not elite.
Instructions
From your excel or any editor you copy and paste your s/r levels (you must use ctrl+c ctrl+v) into the indicator's editor (it will not work if you use the right mouse). A max of 10 lines can be edited (you can add or change the color of lines by editing the indicator).

Hope it makes your life easier

redratsal, could you add the possibility to paste two columns of data so that the second column would contain a comment like Y-VAH. I know when you copy/paste two columns or more, Excel insert a TAB between them so this could be used as column separator. The commentary could be placed directly on the line at the right or left side (user definable). Also, is it possible to add an option in the parameters to replicate all these lines to all charts that have the same data series. And why not adding some parameters to control the color and opacity of the lines.

Find attached a revised version with descriptions included. A max of 10 lines can be imported from excel, if you need more you will have to add for each new line the following instructions:

script lines 80-112


result = Convert.ToDouble(notes1[0]);
DrawHorizontalLine(
"tag1", result, Color.Blue);
DrawText(
"MyText", notes2[0], 0, result + 4 * TickSize,Color.Aqua);

Updated download section https://futures.io/free_downloads/ninjatrader-7/indicators/page-4.html

Just copy from excel and paste in the editor and the S/R with descriptions will plot on the chart

Redratsal,
How do you impliment your indicator from the excell spreadsheet. Is there a way to copy and paste the numbers from the site because I have to enter them into excell first then copy and paste into the indicator. If there was a way to just copy and paste from lets say Bugs numbers provided that would be nice. This would eliminate having to input the numbers. Not being lazy but the shorter I can make the time frame the better.
Great indicator by the way.

Thanks
Hector

You can copy and paste from any place as long as you use one line for each # .

Copying and pasting

Redratsal, I am sorry but I have tried copying and pasting into the window of the indicator and it does not allow me to paste. Is there a step I may be missing. I tried to copy and paste Bugs numbers.

Thanks
Hector
