trendline with input degrees

I am looking for some thoughtful suggestions...

I am trying to find a way to draw a trendline that is based off a high point that will draw based on angle and not price after that point is estabolished.

Say a high is defined as a bar with a lower high to the right and left of bar, center bar now identified as a high. Trendline will draw from that point down at an angle of 30 degrees or any input I put in. And it will disregard the y axis in regards to time input and its not like a regular trendline high to high kinda thing.

I am told by multicharts that this can not be done but anything can be done....just maybe not with them.

ultimately I wanted to have two lines originating from one point with different degree inputs; say 50 and 30.

Looking for suggestions

Investor rt is the closest but you can rotate the trendline from a real zero to 90 degree angle and it reads 80.xx for over 70% of the rotationso thats a fail.

Sierra. ...If i fix the x or y axis how can that work realtime??? The reason multicharts said no go is because of the axis.

I need to define a new high or low and have auto trendlines drawing from those respective prices at fixed angles. A new high or low would have two trend lines each...with different angles.

not exactly what im trying to do but THANK YOU. I had no idea what I was almost replicating was gann lines or a modified fan.

this should make it much easier considering programmers are obviously able to code fixed degrees for lines for the gann indicators.

life saver...thank you
