Hi TJ,
In IB you can enter a symbol TICK_NYSE which is the overall tick movement index of the NYSE
I want to be able to look at it in a indicator to base decisions on whether it is positive or negative

I just can not figure out how to get access to the symbol value in the Easy language. CurrentAsk and CurrentBid give me the value in a strategy if it is on a chart, but I was wondering if I could access other symbols. Maybe I can add the symbol to a chart and hide it then access it. I will play around
Thanks

Just plot it on your chart. (needs to be added in quote manager first)
If you don't want to see it but want to call it in your system, just hide the tick and call the value in your code. (for example: c of data2, if data2 is the tick)
