Can anyone tell me how to scroll the TWS chart forward past the last price on a chart?
I'm using a daily chart right now and I like to draw my trendlines past the current prices so I can see where prices maybe headed.

As it stands right now it wants to jam the last days prices up against the price bar on the far right of the chart, and I can't stand that! I'm a beginner with this platform and I would like to be able to at least center the prices on the chart but haven't been able to figure out how to do it.

Thank-you for your help!!!!

First make sure "margin area" is checked in chart settings > display > margin area. Then at the bottom right of your chart (just past the dates on the y-axis), you see a very small diamond shaped icon. Hover your cursor on this and a vertical blue line should appear. Hold and drag the line as far left as your want. To cancel, right click on the diamond shaped icon and click "reset margin". HTH
