Step 1: Go To Your Data Series
In order to overlay a chart in NinjaTrader we need to do the following: Right click on the chart, select Data Series...
Step 2: Add An Instrument
Select the new instrument and hit the drop down arrow. Find any symbol you want to use to overlay a chart in NinjaTrader. Once added to the list of applied symbols, you can now continue on to step 3.
Step 3: Set Your Panels
Select the table as being part of Panel 1. This is probably going to be the same for most but you want the panels for the instruments to be the same so they are in overlay.
Depending on the price of the two instruments your looking at, you might find that the chart data of one instrument is above the other and they are on the same chart but they are not together. Right click on the chart -> Data Series on the top instrument change Scale justification to Overlay.
