I was looking at price on a weekly level and there are some really big moves. Is there an indicator that will show you the value between two points? The cross hairs give a meaning value ....... GBPUSD 12271~=12.271 (to 3rd decimal point) 5 digit = 1227 pips = 12.2 cents 1.71828 1.59435 = 0.12393 EURUSD 15022~=15.022 (to 3rd decimal point) 5 digit = 1502 pips = 15.0 cents 1.39695 1.24673 = 0.15022 AUDUSD 8507~=8.507 (to 3rd decimal point) 5 digit = 850 pips = 8.5 cents 0.95005 0.86310 = 0.08695 and not sure but ...... EURJPY 51178~=51.178 to 3rd decimal point 3 digit = 5117 pips = 51.17 cents 145.716 93.913 = 51.803 So this indicator may allow you to click between two places or maybe draw a rectangle and give you the \$ amount of a move....... ?????? Something that is quicker and easier?

suppose this is a good place to start.

Hey,

I may have misunderstood your question, but the crosshair feature on MT4 may be able to do what you are asking for. Just click on a point and drag, you should see 3 numbers.

The 1st number is the number of bars between the starting point and the ending point

The 2nd number is the pips value between this two points

The 3rd number is the price at the ending point.

Hope this helps!

 Yeile: the crosshair feature on MT4 may be able to do what you are asking for. Just click on a point and drag, you should see 3 numbers.The 2nd number is the pips value between this two points Click on Cross button or Control-f then "click on a point and drag..."2nd number is the number of points between. MT4 has no concept of pips and a point is 1/10 pip on a 5 digit broker.
