Is it possible to plot only Long or Short trades on Ninjatrader ?

The Ninjatrader Entry / Exit notification is hard to read - especially if you have a couple of trades close to each other.

I use the ToggleButton indie to plot and then get rid of the info when I don't need it.

Is it possible to plot only Long trades or only Short trades on Ninjatrader? That would simplify things sometimes.

Overtrading?

yes it is possible.
In the chart settings under the section where you choose true or false on whether to plot signals.
Set the color of long or short plot to transparent and you will not see the plot on the chart.

Hmmm - Almost buddy ..

That would give you your short entries and your long exits ... or your long entries and your short exits ... not quite what I would be looking for !

Ninjatrader 7 Plot Trades Only on that Chart!

Since working with Ninjatrader 7 i have come across this issue:
when working with Different size charts of the same Instrument with the same Strategy Attached
I can see All Trades Executed for that Instrument.
What i Need to see Visually for each Individual size Chart with that same Strategy Attached to each chart is the Trades it Generated,
But for that Chart Only! - This would Help Greatly with Visual Comparison between Different size charts.
Can this be done with Ninjatrader 7?
On this webpage it says it cannot -stated on 7-13-2015. - Display only trades made on chart - NinjaTrader Support Forum
i may just change Colors of a Particular Chart's Execution's to Only see it's Trades.
i will try this, but i was hoping to see the Text & Plots for the Executions.

Update= Changing the Color for a Particular charts Execution did not work.....i still see All Trades from All size charts in those new Colors.
