Although..... I can see how you might not want to go through all that nonsense for a product you pay for given there might be something else that does exactly what you want.

Im a Wave59 user

and that platform as far as analytics is concerned is far and away the best. The problem is that I can not get integration with my broker supported by either party. NT7 the integration and the OE are awesome but the analytics are very "retail". I'm going to kepp trying for the remainder of the three month lease with NT to make it work, but nobody touches the analytics of Wave.

My problem is that I can not program even the most simple indicator on my own and most guys that can code in their sleep don't or won't effort to visualize my requests.

Well, as far as getting custom scripts done, NT is probably the easiest to get it done in..... mainly b/c it is so popular. Which I suspect is due to it being free and allowing people to SIM on it forever.

Squared Scaling?

What the hell can squared scaling be used for?

And what is it all about?

I personally just don't like the way auto-scale makes my charts look. Almost drives me bat-shit sometimes.

try this

I believe that adding two horizontal lines to the price panel and setting autoscale for both of them to true might help. Should freeze the chart range to the area between the two lines. Give it a try.

It's useful for Geometry and Gann like analysis. If you use the axiom that price = time
or 1 bar = 1 point for example, and you scale your charts that way your drawings
represent that view automatically.

Have you done any bar creation, or scaling scripts before?

1 bar = 1 point? Axiom price = time?

To me this sound like mumbo-jumbo.

A leftover from times, when angles where used instead of momentum. Angles only work on fixed scale charts, momentum works on all types of charts.

But I am curious to find out, how anybody can reasonably use that old stuff.
