Hey Guys,

I have searched around, but have not been able to find out how to alter the chart drop down defaults in NT.

The standard ones are all time based (1,2,3,5,10,15,30,60 min)...I'm wanting to know if I can put up some tick and range chart defaults as well, so I don't have to go to the data series tab every time I want to change a setting...?


Thanks,

I think they cannot be changed, but you can bind the data series menu to a hotkey of your liking.

The easiest way of switching to a tick or range based chart:


- click on your chart and type "233T" and you will have a 233 tick chart
- click on your chart and type "8R" and you will have an 8 range chart

Thank you! that's brilliant! Do you actually know more about NT than its creators?

You can also add a second dataseries the same way, like +ES 09-12 5M

If I understand correctly. Was talked about in last webinar on futures.io (formerly BMT).

Thanx for reminding me. I knew this and then forgot about it completely.
