NinjaTrader ZOrder is another way to describe how you can layer different indicators on a chart. An example of this would be if you wanted an indicator to be in front of the candlesticks or behind the candlesticks?
Below you can find our free price line indicator tool for NinjaTrader 8 in the examples below. In the first example you can see that the grey and pink line are behind the candlesticks.

When to use the ZOrder?

Personal Preference

It all depends on the trader and how they want their charts to look. If you would rather have your indicators more visible then you could want them in front. If you wanted to have them less visible because you might focus more on price action, then you have a perfectly good reason to send them into the background.

Cluttered Free Charts

You can also prevent your charts from being less cluttered and organize to see things that you should be able to see without having them be covered up.
Most indicators will have this option available to their users so that you can modify their behavior as you wish. If you have any questions about the ZOrder and how it can be used with our software feel free to reach out to us.
