Help please - moving spreadsheet values into constant lines indicator

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,

you will have to adapt it to your needs but I think it's managable.

Hope it works

To define the zones, you use Excel and copy/paste into a text file:

Ex.:

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


The final result after pasting the above content copied from Excel should look like this :

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


When you copy/paste lines that comprise many columns, Excel insert a TAB between these columns automatically. This is how the indicator recognises the start of a new column. Here i used a comma for the price level and to define the height but on a US system you use a dot.

P.S. included the Excel template as an example.

Great !!!
I will make a small modification (to avoid warning if the parameter file doesn't exists), and will post it.

I'm not in the elite-circle so for me I guess not. Thanks for thinking of it though.

...

thanks TIYF! Very kind of you

So what you have shown is the steps to create the parameters file which is then ready to be read by the indicator that is forthcoming shortly, (correct)?
If you use the indicator on two different charts with two different parameters files does that work?

(I had trouble matching the graph to the parameters file perhaps there are of different days eg. poc 1281.5 versus 1225 see attached)
