TPO Time Scale changes

The notes for 945 say:

The TPO Profile Charts time scale has been improved to show the date and time of the start of the profile where the profile begins. The old times cale display has been completely removed for TPO Profile Charts.

I have to hand it to Sierra Chart, I asked Anthony to consider some improvements to the x-axis time scale of profile charts to make them less confusing to people when I share them, and a few hours later, it was done.

The new time scales are a lot easier for people to understand, now listing only daily markers and no time marker for daily charts. Some work still needs to be done for the monthly profile, on one of my monthly profiles it works as expected but the other it doesn't.

@Big Mike, from your shot in this post and from the version 945 notes, it looks like they are showing a time for every profile. Why? I am still running 936 due to some changes in window behavior in 939 I don't like and am happy with just showing "2-11 Mo" for Monday. Why show a time when it's very often the same? Or am I misunderstanding the change?

If you look at my older screenshots vs new ones, you'll see they showed a time axis multiple times for a single day. Now they just show a single timestamp for a single day. It is correct now, before it was confusing.

Keep in mind this is for TPO charts only, not VP.


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.
