Setting Chart Defaults?

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).

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

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