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,
Sano

It shows up in mobile but not in the desktop. Have to manually draw a line.

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

I agree, it is super lame to not have this feature. However, I just learned how to do it with thinkscript as a chart study. You click create study on the edit studies window and paste in this code in the thinkscript editor, and then you can edit it to change the color afterwards with the gear icon. I know this is an old post, but it ranks for this question on google, so I wanted to share a possible solution for thinkorswim:

def averagePrice=GetAveragePrice();
plot AverageTradePrice=if(averagePrice > 0, averagePrice, double.NaN);

You can also click show trades in the chart settings and it will show every trade you've made on that chart with the price in a bubble.

plot AverageTradePrice=if(averagePrice > 0, averagePrice, double.NaN);


Is this working on TOS ? Looking for confirmation because I can't get it to work. I would like to plot a line accross the graph of my average holding price.

Perhaps something here > http: //box5176.temp.domains/~markexm8/dev/forums/topic/track-your-positions-on-your-charts/]Track your positions on your charts ?
