Open a new chart inside of NinjaTrader
You can open a new chart from the control center, and clicking on the "New" menu followed by "Chart"
Right click on the chart and go to Data Series
More advanced keyboard users, just press CTRL + F and you will get the data series window opened
Under "Type" change this to the bar type you desire
That's it! Don't forget you can save this chart template as "default" to have it open up the exact same way every time.
How To Video on Changing Bar Types
The following bar types are available currently in the NinjaTrader 8 platform:
- Heiken Ashi
- Point and Figure
- Line Break
For each of these types you can set a certain preset which will store your favorite settings for each chart type. An example of this can be found in the video above.
Our XABCD Pattern Software for NT8 also works on the above types of charts. If you have any other problems with the setup, feel free to reach out to us on the live chat support as we might quickly be able to help you there too.
