    How to count Ticks?

    Hi Ninjas,

    This is a simple matter but for a non-professional high-tech in deep NinjaTrader core, I'm not sure what is the best way to count Ticks. My goal is to keep an exact count of Ticks in a session from its beginning, let's say that I have a 1 Tick chart, where every Tick is a new Bar. So far, I've seen these options with my doubts:

    1. Count:
    Allegedly it returns the total number of bars or data points but it doesn't specify whether is for the session or the Chart. What I look for is a counter for the whole session, regardless the "Maximum Lock Bars" in a Strategy Analyzer.

    2. CurrentBar:
    Another counter but it seems that only counts for the Bars in a Chart. Is it possible use it for the whole session?

    3. TickCount:
    Since its definition is: "The total number of ticks of the current bar" it seems that in a TickChart of 1, it will always be 1, right? Can TickCount be useful in other way?

    4.BarsSinceSession:
    Since its definition is "The number of bars that have elapsed since the session started." , it seems that it will work as Count.

    So, in your experience, what would it be the best option to achieve my goal as the fastest and flawless one?

    Thank you

    Hello pstrusi,

    Thank you for your post.

    BarsSinceSession would work for your purposes.
