I am using a 2000 tick chart on CTS T4 for practice. I need a indicator mentioning the number of ticks remaining for the current bar to be printed.

I saw the CTS T4 api page, it is pretty confusing to me. Ninjatrader has an inbuilt indicator for this function but there is no such indicator in CTS T4.

Can anyone guide me how to do this please?

i believe the T4 API is for developing custom applications.

On the charts, you can create your own custom study though.
