Please forgive my ignorance and the many gaps in my understanding. I've only programmed a few things in Ninjascript, and I don't really know how to get values from indicators.

I can see that to get a value from EMA you can do something simple like this:
double value = EMA(20)[0];
Print("The current EMA value is " + value.ToString());

But what about a more complicated third-party indicator that has multiple values? I'm specifically wanting to get values from fin-alg's TPO and Volume Profile Chart (v4). How would I put the VAH and VAL, etc., into variables so that I can use them in a script?

Thanks in advance for any insights!

Better to use this:



I had Gomi develop this profile toolkit for me a while back. It handles all typical MP/VP stuff, and is written specifically for use in strategies.

I did get a response from fin-alg that said "Market Profile Lines will support this"...

fin-alg has multiple products, which is confusing, and I guess TPO and Volume Profile Chart doesn't allow you to grab the values in a script, but Market Profile Lines will.

I haven't tried it yet, but just posting here in case someone else has the same question.

Of course Gomi's solution is free... yet it seems to require a bit of work to setup (at least for me).

I am not sure if you looked at the thread or not, but the product I asked Gomi to create for this purpose is streamlined. It doesn't require anything special really. It has been several years, but I am pretty sure at least...
