Ok one more. I even read the manual on "scaling", and I can't find anywhere how to change the height of panel 2 and 3...

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


I want them to be smaller in height (occupy less screen real estate). I tried all the scaling options but nothing is allowing me to scale the entire 'panel 2' and 'panel 3' in terms of height in relation to the entire chart.

Mike

This study depends on level 2 data, your datafeed has to provide it( I see you have it on charts), and on the bid ask you are storing, so it backfill only if u are continuously storing that data.

Take your Pips, go out and Live.

I use ticks and 10.000. Are you using level 5 ? I have because I use a variant of their TPO.

Why 10,000? Why not more? I have more or less unlimited disk space, so why limit it? If the number is too high will SC fail?

We're talking about how much Bid and Ask data it is storing, right?

Yes, SC level 5.

Set it to the maximum and see what happens. I guess I don't need more than 10.000 ? I had to look it up for your question, I don't even remember changing it.

Last two things and bed time for me.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


(1) How can I get the chart trading buttons on the panel to the left moved so that it is to the right of the price axis?

(2) How can I adjust the margin of panel 1 so that there is some room between the top and bottom (high and low) of price so that bars don't go right up to the top or bottom of the panel -- as you can see here it is causing the Depth graph to be missing all the bid information because it is below the margin area.

Hi Mike

Quoting 
(1) How can I get the chart trading buttons on the panel to the left moved so that it is to the right of the price axis?

Go to Chart Settings>2. Tab>Attach trade Window to right side

Quoting 
(2) How can I adjust the margin of panel 1 so that there is some room between the top and bottom (high and low) of price so that bars don't go right up to the top or bottom of the panel -- as you can see here it is causing the Depth graph to be missing all the bid information because it is below the margin area

Right Click in the price axis, then you can choose what you want >scaling, moving, adjusting. If "moving" ist checked you can scale with strg + left mouse button

Thx. Getting there.

The solution to #2 though seems to imply it won't auto scale though, so I would have to continuously adjust this throughout the day to add my own top and bottom margins. In MultiCharts (and I think NT if I remember) there was an option for how much margin to add above/below the top and bottom bar displayed in the price panel. I'm just used to seeing things a certain way, so the first thing I do is try to make it look like I am used to it looking

As far as I remember there was something in the support board from kiwi to add top/ bottom margins.
But I am not sure.

After a year of using SC, it is good to see others seeing value in the stability (I can't remeber when SC crashed the last time) and flexibility SC offers.

@vegasfoster, you can have multiple data series and studies onthe same chart, the way to do this is different from other platform cos u need to load a separate chart and then use the overly studies to reference the chart and studies u want to plot on the same chart. There are a lot of functionality on this feature.

OIC, I was looking for "multi-series". And even on range bars it works exactly like it should, that's awesome, thank you!

right click on price, range, adjust to see top and bottom, right click on price again, select constant range, auto center.
