NT8 has an Orderflow Cummulative Delta indicator. It GRAPHS Bid/Ask either by bar or for the session. I'd like that indicator but in the form of a 2-row spreadsheet-like grid along the bottom of a chart, which showed the VALUE number: one row on top for the bar and under it the session total at each bar. Each tick would show the recalculated value. This is to include in my strategy. Question: has anyone already done something like this for another indicator or even for THIS indicator? Thanks, -Bill-

You would need to access the data and then design an output grid by using a custom plot.

But why would you wish to include grids with numbers in a strategy?

The strategy would run as well without printing any numbers into grids.

Have you looked at Volumetric bars? If you choose Volumetric bars as your data series, under Properties for Volumetric bars there is a check box to "Show bar statistics". If you check this box, you'll see a table at the bottom of the chart which contains rows of data that you can customize. Bar delta and cumulative delta are among them. I think this sounds exactly like what you're looking for.
