Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Transparent overlay trick

Everyone may already know this but I discovered a little trick. I overlay volume on most of my charts, like the chart titled BigBlue below.

If instead of selecting a color you type in the yrgb codes, you can set the transparency.

Second chart has 64,0,0,254 typed in the Plots>Color field.

Easier on the eyes sometimes.
