We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

Arrows to mark trade entries and exits?

Are there any arrows to mark trade entries and exists on a chart?
I called customer support at TOS today and the rep said, "no"?
The rep said use the trendline but it's cumbersome instead of a simple arrow.

The answer is it depends. It can be scripted if you are trading a system with conditions or something to that effect but without some semblance of parameters it would be impossible as far as I know anyway.
