I haven't done NT programming for years and can't remember how to do this.

I am modifying the EMA indicator to plot 2 lines above and below an EMA that will plot the value of the EMA plus 2 ticks and - 2 ticks. How do I do this so it will adapt itself to each instrument?

Thanks in advance.

Rather than try to explain it you can download this indicator and it has bands and the code is pretty easy to understand.

If that doesn't do it for you, perhaps someone else will respond or I will give examples if needed.

I imported it and messed around with the settings... couldn't get it to display any bands.
Is the offset-multiplier meant to be number of ticks or points or ??
