14 Fib levels or more? Has anyone programed custom fib levels in NT? 10 levels is not enough for what I want to do.

I did not code any tools, but an indicator, which identifies 540 levels. Not sure whether this is, what you are looking for.

There is also another simpler indicator in the download section, which shows quite a number of levels.



What exactly do you need these levels for?

Hi Fat Tails,

I am sort of comparing the fib levels available in NT vs. TradeStation. TS provides for 14 levels which helps with the major extensions. In NT, with only 10 levels, once the major fibs are assigned between 0 and 100, there are only 3 available spots for extensions and I would like more, out to at least the 314. Thank you for your reply.
Dave

This is not possible with the tool as it is designed, you would need to contact NinjaTrader support and ask for a modification for future releases.

The only workaround I can suggest, is to produce 2 different templates, one for retracements and one for extensions. You can save the templates via right-clicking into the Template window.

If you want to show retracements and extensions, you would have to apply the Fib tool twice and select the appropriate templates. Not really an elegant solution, but you will get what you are looking for.

I did contact NT support and they basically said if I wanted more levels then I would need to custom program them. why I posted here to see if anybody had done that.

I am using your suggestion since that is the only way to deal with it right now.

Thanks for your reply.

are you drawing the fibs through an indicator or by hand (ie by mouse clicks). if through an indicator, dont use the fib object. instead use line object based on the calculations.

if you wish to draw the same via hand, then also you can make an indicator, though the same will have a lot of non-supported stuffs.
