Display Text From .Txt File On Chart

This indicator will open a txt file "TextToChart.txt" in your MyDocuments>NinjaTrader8 folder. You should create this file or copy the file I included in the .zip file, to your NT8 folder. In that file there are four lines of text. When you apply the indicator to a chart, NinjaTrader will read this file once, save each text line to a string variable, and string these variables together and display them on the chart every 20 bars.

If you were running calculations in another program and wanted to display these on your chart, this would be a useful framework for implementing that.
