Hello Everyone, I'm wondering of there is a way to reduce the blank space to the right of the price scale and the edge of my screen? I'm using NT7.. I'm using Wizard's new color chart and I've adjusted it in many ways but I can't seem to get rid of the 1/2" space to the right of the price bar and the edge of my screen.

Anyone have any ideas? I've checked all the chart properties and margin properties and nothing seems to be working..

Thanks!

Post a picture so we can see what you are talking about. If you are talking about the margin between the current candle and the axis scale you can change that in the chart properties.

Would be much easier, if you had shown a chart. There are several answers to your question. I am aware that you do not ask about the the space between the last bar and the y-axis, but to the right of the y-axis

One problem of NinjaTrader is that the formatting for indicators does not work properly on interest rate futures. This basically applies to all indicators. (see example for EMA in chart 2)

It is possible to modify any indicator to comply with formatting for interest rate futures. I have done this for the SessionPivots indicators (as you can see from chart 3).

The worst experience I have had so far, was when I applied an indicator to show the spreads on bonds. Chart attached. I guess that I have to recode the formatting of the indicator values via FormatPriceMarker().

Just added that code snippet which I had produced for the SessionPivots indicator to the Bond Spreads indicator, and the problem went away.

The indicator is now correctly formatted, and there is no space to the right of the y-axis. However, the correct formatting was only applied to the price markers of the indicator.

There is a problem with the formatting of the y-axis in the indicator panel, as it shows decimals instead of the 32nds it is supposed to show. Anybody there, who knows how to correct that?

Hello, thanks for the responses!

I don't know how to show a chart? "Print screen" and save?

Yes Fat Tails! Thats what I'm talking about.. right of the y axis.. I may be able to live with the spacing between the chart frame and the last candle..(like in your 3rd post) but the space between the price bar and the right (edge of screen) is bothering me.

You can print a screenshot, but the easier way with NinjaTrader is to right-click the chart with your mouse, then select -> Image -> Save as...

You can then attach the image file to your post. When posting scroll down and look for -> Manage Attachments and upload your image file.

Maybe you first need to make five posts in the forum to be allowed to attach files, I do not remember this.

The problem corrected itself after I restarted NT. I think it was the font size change (to 8.25pt) that did it but didn't take until the re-start.
