MACDBB indicator modification, if possible. Thanks.

I have attached a screen shot of an indicator from Youtube that I saw. It is similar to the MACDBB indicator here on Big Mikes. What I was wondering if anyone knows how to make the futures.io (formerly BMT) MACDBB look like the one I saw on YouTube. What is different about it is the MACDBB here at futures.io (formerly BMT) has the values at .01, .02, .03 etc and -.01, -.02, -.03 etc. The one I saw on Youtube has values of 1.0, 2.0, 3.0 etc and -1.0, -2.0 -3.0 etc. Also the margin on the Youtube for the values 1.0, 2.0 etc are very close to the right side of the window pane as compared to the futures.io (formerly BMT) MACDBB which has a larger margin away from the pane. I was wondering if there is a way to get that closer to the pane. Any help would be appreciated.

Generally you'll want to make such a request here:

Mike

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.
6)

@hector24: The values of the decimals depend on the instrument that you trade and on the timeframe that you have selected for your chart. The MACD is not a normalized indicator, so you will find smaller and larger values. In your screenshot you compared a FDAX chart with a CL chart. The ticksize of CL is 0.01 while the FDAX has a ticksize of 0.5. Obviously you get smaller MACD values for CL as compared to FDAX.

With NinjaTrader you can select the margin between the y-axis on the right side and the indicator plot, but you cannot select the margin between the y-axis and the right edge of the chart panel.

To select the margin between y-axis and the indicator plot, please right-click your chart and select -> Properties -> Right side Margin.

Fat Tails, you are right. I checked another Youtube that had CL and the values are the same as mine. Thanks.
Regarding the right margin between the y-axis and the right edge of the chart panel. I am curious how they were able to do this on their chart. Just curious.

Thanks
Hector
