This is my first post here, as I couldn't find this with a quick search.
I am using the ZigZag indicator over multiple timeframes. I have the parameters set so that it tracks the proper highs/lows for me, but I would like the high/low values displayed in text on the chart.
I have taken a screenshot of what I want (after manually adding text to show what I am looking for).
Is is possible to have the P1, P2, P3 text and corresponding high/low EUR/USD values printed on the chart like this?
I understand that the value of P3 will be changing in real time as the price continues moving up or down.
I only need the last 3 values, the older ones are not important.
You need to post the code you are using
I am using the standard ZigZag indicator. I am posting the code as requested, however:

zigzag fibo( no alert or alert adjusted to true or false)
A great work is actually taken place here and quite appreciate all the guys that have contirbuted to the forum one way or the other. I am just few days old and I'm happy with the what i have seen so far.
Just for help,
1) is there any zigzag with fibonacci level indicator(no alert or alert can be false or
2) seriously looking for any indicator that will show the exact or approximte turning point whenever stochastic oscilator is within overbought/oversold region. That is, whenever stochastic of any parameter enters overbought/oversold region using any time frame, something else (another indicator) will then indicate the level at which the market/price most likely reverse.
I shall be glad for the help.
Maybe something of these threads could like you
There is only one that I have found which is always correct but unfortunately slow
need a favor
hi there,I've seen one indicator here but is not in complete.I have complete one but I don't konw some word in it,could anyone do me a favor to tanslate it into English in all.Great thanks!!!!!
Alright,I need to add some details.This "GannZigZag.mq4" is a integrated one compareed to the one appeared on the page 1 of this topic.
refer page 1 of this topic
Thanks everyone for posting all the zigzag indicators, summing everything, it seems there are basically 3 types of zigzag around
1. Indicators based on the original zigzag
2. Indicators based on the Dinapoli i.e. High/Low zigzag
3. Non lag zigzag, gann and swing indicators a kind of compromise between the two
All zigzag based indicators repaint and you can spot them because they all contain the original code base, these include all the zigzag pointers, zigzag at turning points.
The indicators based on dinapoli usually include the 'Barn' statement as an extern int. These indicators do not repaint and are very reliable, trouble is they work from history and are very slow to form the next leg.
The Non lag gann and swing seem to be a zigzag with some variation of Dinapoli type code included they mostly do not repaint but occasionally do.
Well for me it still back to the drawing board, more to come I am sure
or put it like this
there are three types of zz:
1. based on original zz
2. based on not original
here's another: a zz with channel
