Hello! Id like to know if its possible to add custom text to the fibonacci indicator in Ninjatrader 8. I talked to the ninjatrader support, ive searched in the forum but with no success, Id like to know if someone knows if this is possible and if perhaps someone can add that code to the default indicator.
thanks!

Hi cronosis. Do you mean the Fibonacci drawing tool which is accessed from the chart's menu? Or one of the built-in fibonacci-based indicators (cluster etc)?

For what Ive researched so far its not possible from the default indicator because that can only be done by NinjaTrader, so Im guessing it has to be done from a previuous retracement indicator code to which the "add custom text" functionality should be added. Are you familiar with MT4/5?

Awesome, heres what Id like to do; the Fibo in MT4 lets you add custom text to the levels you determine, for example:
- STOP LOSS
- RR1
- RR2

Thats what Id like to do in Nt8


RRR4

You can make a copy of it then add your own coding.

I can edit the Fibonacci tools in the ninjatrader script editor, but Im not sure what or where should I add the "custom text" option for the Fibonacci retracement levels. Can you guide me with that? Im still ver new to coding.

actually fib is built in so there is no coding to copy but there are many risk/reward indicators with text https://ninjatraderecosystem.com/user-app-share-results/?fwp_usa_search=risk

I checked them out but they all base the RR either on a fixed ratio or size account, my RR is based off of fibo levels based on fractals which are dinamic, thats why I was looking just for the feature to add text to the fibo tool for visual help.. such a shame that something like Mt4 has it built in but its not in ninja trader.

Cronos, so this doesn't do what you're looking for?
