Hello ,

Has any one create a net change and % change indicator that would displays the information on the Ninjatrader chart itself ? Like Thinkorswim displays the netchange or % change of the instrument above the dom. Does any one know of an alternative way other than market analyzer to display those values.

I have attached an example from TOS.

Thanks a lot for your time..

Code
 
//Net change %:
DrawTextFixed("Change%", (((100/PriorDayOHLC().PriorClose[0]*Close[0])-100)/100).ToString("0.00%"),TextPosition.BottomLeft);
 
//Net change (YC < close[0]:
DrawTextFixed("Change", (Close[0]-PriorDayOHLC().PriorClose[0]).ToString("000000.0000"),TextPosition.BottomLeft);
 
//Net change (YC > close[0]:
DrawTextFixed("Change", (PriorDayOHLC().PriorClose[0]-Close[0]).ToString("000000.0000"),TextPosition.BottomLeft);

noticed a little problem today.

when market is higher, the net change would show a minus sign. and when market is lower, the net change would show a plus sign. the % change looks correct.

attached a new version.

I loaded your Net Change indicator on my charts, but nothing happens. ( I see no net change on the chart as your picture shows) Do I need to change settings for the indicator or what am I doing wrong? I can't believe Ninja does not have this already but yours looks great.

@gecko,

I haven't looked at this indicator for a long time.

but I do remember I updated it for someone. here's a newer version. no need to change any settings. it uses the nt prior day ohlc.

I feel embarrassed, but when I changed the Text Box color to white it magically appeared! My backround color is black so your box was hidden. Great indie!
Thanks again

Colors would be nice or maybe an arrow pointing up or down. Also, this indie seems to work only on time frames less than the Daily.

Great indicator. I was hoping it would work in the market analyzer though, since you can't seem to see the net change there when the market is closed. I would also really like to be able use this to see 1, 3, and 12 month change in the market analyzer. Any way this indy could do that?

@rickr,

for daily charts you could use a 1440 min for eth or a 405 min for rth. that way the indicator should work.

Hi,
Why this super indicator doesn't plot, report the value in the data box so i can use it also with trading system?
Could you fix it?
