How do you get the settlement price on a chart that uses Market Profile as layout. Usually, when you look at Market Profile, the last price is represented by a star '*' but what about if you would like to see the star shown at the settlement price location??? I know i can use a V# variable to hold the settlement and put a reference line on the chart but what about the star '*'. Is it possible to set the star so that it represents the settlement price ?
No way currently to use the settlement price. Profiles can be just about any duration: 30 minutes, split-session, monthly, etc...not just one day....that's why the star represents the last price of each profile and not the settlement. The method you mentioned of putting the settlement into a V# and plotting it via a reference line is about all you can do here currently.
