Show average position on Chart

Hi guys, feel like this should be easy but I can't figure it out.

If I am holding a position how do I get the entry price to show on the chart by default? For example, if I enter a trade long at 7.50 how can I always have the chart for that symbol display a line at 7.50 showing me that this is my position?

Any help is appreciated,

Not showing your position is the lamest thing ever. Why can ToS do it on mobile but not in their regular platform? Super weak.
