I would like to show the P/L so I can see it better.
I find it hard to read dark red against black.

How do I change this color combination?
e.g Red against white



Thanks in advance!

Sorry no answer to your question from me. But I wanted to ask why are you buying after the trend is broken down? I know you are in buy zone!

The example is only to show the colors
If I showed a winning trade the P/L wouldn't have red on black

peace, love and joy to you

I would like to recommend to you Rainbow, NinjaTrader on steroids.....and its FREE I just grabbed this off his site...




and here it is on my chart.....



So many great useful improvements its sick. This is just one. All very customizable. You can make, for example, the profit levels any distance you would like. Its indicator line A.1.2. in A.1. ChartTrader+ section




I don't currently see a way to change the colors like you would like to. Hence the Rainbow link. Hope it helps.

If you want I can make a P/L for some corner of your chart with colors you want super quick and easy. Up to you.
