3. Apply the transparency setting to the Moving
    Average indicator so that price information on the
    chart can be seen more clearly in certain

  • With the capability to control the transparency, the price data on
       your chart is not obstructed when using a thicker moving average
       line or when several moving averages all converge in the same
       general area.
  • You can customize the line transparency from the Moving Average
       configuration menu. With your mouse, drag the Transparency slider
       to the right to make the line more transparent or drag the slider to
       the left to make it less transparent. The slider moves on a scale of
       0% (no transparency) to 100% (total transparency). 





Apply the Transparency Setting to the Moving Average Indicator

4. Plot a moving average where the line color
    changes when the slope of the line changes

  • Applying this new visual option to any moving average makes it
       easier to spot changes in the trend direction as they develop.
  • Fully configurable settings allow you to:
    • Customize the colors of the moving average to highlight
         periods when it is rising and periods when it is falling.
    • Set the transparency so that price data is not obscured when
         using thicker moving average lines or when multiple moving
         averages all converge in the same general area.

5. Enhancements to the Horizontal Line drawing tool
    in Charts give you greater control when lining up
    the horizontal line with a specific chart point.

  • When you select Horizontal Line from the Drawing Tools menu in
       Charts, a configurable Price field now allows you to set an exact price
       for the horizontal line.
  • This tool can help you pin the horizontal line to a very specific level
       that otherwise may be difficult to achieve with the click-and-drag
       operation. This is especially useful when plotting the horizontal
       line on a chart where the price scale is more compressed.

8. Add the Volume-on-Price indicator to your chart to get a clearer picture of potential support and resistance levels.

  • See the level of trading activity that has occurred at various price
       levels. The indicator combines price and volume to identify areas of
       potentially significant support and resistance. Specific price levels
       that have been marked by higher volume (longer horizontal bars)
       indicate greater market participation at those levels.
  • These higher volume areas called out by the indicator can be used
       as another source of information to help confirm generally recognized
       levels of price support and price resistance.
  • The indicator is also customizable, allowing you to choose bars that
       can be displayed with either a left or right orientation, and also
       allowing you to display the bars using various levels of detail.
