Hi @kYW42786,

We meet again.

On this one, I am not sure exactly what you are asking about. If you just want to know the tick size and value of an instrument, you can easily look that up on the CME website (or Google it). I am not sure how an indicator would be useful for that, or how it would make sense for someone to create one.

But if you are looking for something besides just a raw listing of the values, I think you should be more specific what you are looking for. Where and how do you want to access this, for instance? An indicator is displayed on a chart -- how should it be displayed? How would it look? How would it be used? That sort of thing. Something descriptive of what you are looking for.

Forgive me if I just haven't understood you correctly. If you can be a little more specific about what you are looking to have this indicator do, perhaps someone can be of more help.

Bob.

@kYW42786, I think the two lines of code provided by @Azzzz may provide the data you are asking for, if they are put into a finished indicator that shows it in some way.

You can see the problem, if it is unclear how you want it displayed.... no one will know how to respond, since the data can be displayed in any number of ways.

So if you can give people a hand and let them know what you are after, it will be easier for them to help.

Bob.

Hi,

Thanks for the reply. I wanted the tick info and the tick value to be displayed on the chart like a label asI have them in TOS platform.

Not sure how you do it ? The code provided is it in Ninjascript add on. How do I put it on a chart?

I don't understand if you asked for a code or if you were looking for a product.

Thanks for the clarification about TOS. The code provided is not a full add-on indicator; it might become part of an indicator if one is written. It is not yet something that can go on a chart.

To get to an indicator, we need to know how and where you want the data. Most of us do not know or use TOS -- if you can post a chart image, showing how TOS does it, that would help enormously. Post an image and use a marking pen in the image software to show where it appears. (If you don't know how to do images here yet, you can just use the built-in Windows Snip Tool, highlight the area on the chart with it, copy to the clipboard, and paste in into you post. You can mark up the image before you copy it. (Start Menu > Windows Accessories > Snipping Tool.) )

Just to let you know that I'm not being needlessly picky, as a programmer who has written lots of indicators, I do not yet have any idea what you are asking for. ( ). This is not a criticism, it's just that programmers need clear descriptions. Also, the indicator may already exist somewhere, but it will need to be described better so someone can recognize it. That's why a picture or a good description is great.

Also, since you're an Elite member, you can always make a direct post in the free Ninja indicator thread if you would like to see if someone knows of or is willing to write an indicator for you, to your specification.... but they'll need a specification first (not to belabor the point; I'm sure you get it now.) Here's the thread, for future reference:



Let's see if we can get a clear description or image of what you are after first.

Bob.

An actual indicator. We just aren't sure yet what he is looking for. Stay tuned if you can help.

Here is a screenshot of the Micro mini /MNQ Tick size and Tick value. Of course the dta varies depending on the futures instrument. This is an indicator that displays the label on the chart rather than a plot. THX

Thanks. So you need the tick size and tick value only? I'm not sure what the "1-lot share equivalent" is.

I haven't used NT for a long time, but this is doable. Where do you want the label to go? It looks like it's on the top of the screen, near the price axis on the right.

Anyone want to take this now?

Bob.
