The latest, as far as I know. NT 7.0(19?)

I use the same version of NinjaTrader, maybe related to session templates used?

Instead of using <Instrument Default>, I changed mine to 24/5. Is that the cause of the problem in the display?

You certainly run into difficulties, if your session template for the upper series is different from the template for the lower series. But if both series have the same template it should be displayed orderly.

But there is a NinjaTrader bug for tick charts, so I would not be astonished if - depending on the session template - there were problems with minute charts as well.

multiple dataseries equally spaced on one chart

The key to this problem is realizing that the only thing that really matters is for each bar of the secondary dataseries to be synchronized with a bar of the primary dataseries. So whenever a new bar starts for the primary series, a new bar starts for the secondary series.

This is easy to do using an indicator that incorporates the Add method and samples the secondary series at least several times during the life of each bar of the primary series.

The only problem with this is that the bars of the secondary dataseries will be of a variable duration. But for most purposes that really doesn't matter.

Examples:

Please try NinjaTrader6.5

NinjaTrader7 is still in Beta version, not released, there are many bugs of course. So i still use NinjaTrader6.5 for trading.

Could you try NinjaTrader6.5? Now i use two data series, 4-Rang bar and 5 minute bar, without problem in NinjaTrader6.5.

Looking for info on multiple series on the same chart ( NT7 ). When I add a second series of-say
NQ- 1st 600 tick 2nd 3000 tick , the first series becomes either spread out or squeezed together or both . Is there some trick to this ? I know other
software's like Neoticker that handle multiple series with no problem . Thanks

I believe the problem we were having & describing was having 2 data series on the SAME CHART. Not 2 different charts. As far as I know you cannot have 2 data series on the SAME chart in NT 6.5. Only NT 7 offers this & it does not seem to work properly - yet.

Multiple data series do not work in 6.5

"I believe the problem we were having & describing was having 2 data series on the SAME CHART. Not 2 different charts. As far as I know you cannot have 2 data series on the SAME chart in NT 6.5. Only NT 7 offers this & it does not seem to work properly - yet." - The Wizard

Underlined portion is indeed the case. And in NT6.5 you can't display indicators based on added data series, because the Add() method only works in strategies, not in indicators.

However in NT7 I am finding that such indicators, where a secondary data series is ADD()ed, do work well enough to be reliably useful.

Example of multiple data series in the same chart in NT7

Anyone can do this for time based charts. But it can work for any type of interval for the primary series, as shown here.

Multiple data series support

In NinjaTader6.5, you can have 2 data series in Strategy on the SAME CHART, but not for Indicator.

in NinjaTrader7, the feature of Multiple data series is supported in both Strategy and Indicator.

Zondor, Help!

Your chart looks so nice & easy to read. Here's mine (TF 09-10) from today using 12 MedianRenko & 4 MedianRenko data series. All F*****D up! and the indicators are unreadable, too. Did Ninja intend it to look this way? What am I doing wrong? Thanks.
