I am confident that Smart Ruler is the #1 ruler for NinjaTrader.
There are no equivalent products on the market, and also there are no equivalent products in any other trading platform!

What makes Smart Ruler outstanding? Well, there are many. However, if asked to choose only one feature to demonstrate its super power, I will not hesitate to pick its ability to let you do across-page measurements comfortably. As you know, a trend may last very long from page to page on your chart. The ruler enables you to measure the trend easily: first click to anchor the start point, release your mouse for freedom of hand, then scroll your mouse’s wheel or use Page Up, Page Down, Home, End, Left, Right keys to position the end point.

Smart Ruler helps you measure distances between any 2 points on your chart:

  • Vertically: in ticks, points, dollar value, and percentage of price change
  • Horizontally: in bars and time duration (time duration is especially useful for tick or range charts, where the number of bars plays a less important role)

The ruler can be switched on or off with your mouse’s MIDDLE button:

  • Click then release your mouse’s middle button quickly to switch the ruler on or off
  • Click and hold your mouse’s middle button more than 1 second to activate the mini data box

By default, prices and bar highlights are displayed at measured points for ease of visibility. You are given an option to turn these features on or off. You can freely customize the appearance of the ruler box: box location, box background, text color, font size.

It’s highly recommended that you disable “Allow the selection or drag/drop of chart series” to avoid mistakenly selecting bar or plot series while measuring. Please right click your chart, select “Properties” (Ctrl + T), then turn the option to “False” as follows.
