Looking for a function in NinjaTrader. I would like to have something that looks at my entries and calculates that average number of ticks a trade goes against me across all of my trades. Does this functionality exist in NinjaTrader, or is there something I can add on to get this information?

For instance - if I enter a trade and it goes 4 ticks against me and then goes in my favor and takes out my target it would return a value of -4. If the next trade does goes 2 ticks against me and then takes out my target it would return a value of -2. If the next trade takes out my full stop of 10 ticks it would return a value of -10. This information would be helpful in analyzing my trades. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

there you see MAE .. you see how deep a trade run against you before it has been closed .. you also see on stopped trades how far they run forward in "your" direction before stopping (MFE)
