WHY?

There was an third-party indicator who had drawn a second y-scale at the left side of the chart. These values differs from the right sided scale about 3 or 4 ticks. I have removed the indi and the second scale disapears. I couldn't reproduce the wrong result again. But it seems that the data box is equal with the RIGHT sided y-value scale.

So i think NO NinjaTrader error at all.

Thanks Koepisch

Any indicator can be overlaid to a chart by using its own scale. If you open the indicator dialogue box you can select
Overlay, Left or Right under Scale Justification.

By default, price uses the right scale. If you want that the indicator uses its own scale, you can either select

-> Overlay: the own scale of the indicator is displayed on the right side
-> Left: the own scale of the indicator is displayed on the left side

The indicator that you had added used the left scale by default.

Below attached an example of an indicator in Overlay mode. The horizontal lines are plotted by the indicator and refer to the overlaid scale.

Thanks for clearing that! I will try a simple indi at price bars and play with the properties.
