I need a indicator that can scroll in real time but have a function so that can look back at any amount of days, bars ticks......etc back as I need.
Example if im looking at a current day or month, I want to be able to adjust some parameters to go back 15 days or 15 bars....etc When my chart is scrolling in real time I will be able to see what happened in the past at that same time, bar or day back but hopefully with some auto scrolling adjustments without having to use the global cross hair to look back.

If you want to talk more about my needs please feel free to email me back. Blkreign69@hotmail.com

blk,

You'll get a better response if you share details. You need to mark up a chart or two with examples of what you are trying to accomplish and write out a few paragraphs of text explaining how the indicator will work. Otherwise people will just skip your post most likely.

I don't think you can code an indicator that changes something on the chart as the user is scrolling, only if new tick data comes into the chart.

Bukkan is that done in real-time? If so, was you able to do this in Ninja 6.5?

From what I believe, that can be easily done in NT7.

Just type inside the chart +5M or with the code of another stock you wish to compare it with.

meaning EBAY +5M or whatever code and time you wish to compare with and it will split the chart in half, or even add a 3rd one too.

Not sure if thats what you mean or want though.

Yes @ Studio88. ts not exactly the same but the split screen like you do in NT7 could work for what im trying to configure. Do you know of where I can get a code or indicator that would possibly do the same thing?

Just upgrade to NT7 and you can do it yourself.

The change to NT7 is inevitable.
NT6.5 will go away and a custom indicator for an obsolete platform is a waste of time and money (if you actually paid someone to do it).

Hi Blkreign, mate I dont have a solution for you but I would have to agree with what David has stated.

You can run NT7 in parallel with NT6.5 and you can even use your existing Key and it will import most of your instruments and other compatible items.

Give it a try is all I can suggest otherwise, you may need to even try another program but I am not too sure which one would help you there.

Perhaps somebody else could comment on whether Multicharts can do your needs.

I quite like multicharts but all this toggling back and forth it becomes frustrating because MC has other easy task processing over some of NTs ways, Yet NT has some other natural task processing than MC. Getting torn between the 2.

Anyway, good luck with that one mate.
Cheers.

Without looking at your code, many times you can do a quick and dirty trick by just using RSI, like so:

 
Code
                            


ds 
RSI(myDataSeries11)[0]; 
Typing that free hand from my notebook, no Ninja editor. But the point is, just pass your dataseries that you want to normalize into RSI directly. If 1,1 doesn't give you the desired results, increase the lookback smoothing period.

Hi Dimitri

If you provide some more information - like the name of the indicator, link or screenshot you may find the requested indicator already exists

You are looking for a bound oscillator, which never goes lower than 0 or greater than 100. These are usually bound because they the result of a ratio, which implies a value is divided by some other value, and the divisor is always >= the dividend. So, I'm not sure what sort of ratio you are looking for. What is being divided by what?
