I use black backgrounds because it is easier on the eyes for me but am frustrated all the time with the white NT crosshair.
It would be excellent if you dial in the transparency of it or change the colour?
Is it possible?
I switch it off as often as I can but then I need to see where I am on other charts and have to turn it on again.
Hope someone knows a workaround.
Thanks

I feel your pain... but I don't have an answer for you.

I'm just a simple man trading a simple plan.

This is not possible however, I believe this is already on our suggested listed but I will add another vote based on your comments here. The crosshair color automatically detects if the chart canvas is dark or light and changes its color from black to white based on this.

I really appreciate your response.
It seems a small thing in the big scheme of things but I think a lot of traders use darker backgrounds for the sake of their eyes and the white crosshair just glows and you cant see wicks or tails well at all.
