Ability to lock drawing items movement?

Recommended Posts

It can be quite annoying when you can so easily and very often unknowingly move your drawing items, i.e. Fibonacci trend lines etc. when clicking or dragging your workspace chart. I find myself constantly in this situation and had to re-adjust those lines back to where it should be. Any chance the tech team can make this happen? perhaps a " lock all drawing items" button on the drawing tool bar or an option in single drawing item's customize menu? thanks

Hi

 

There is a workaround that might suit your needs. If you right click on the chart you will see an option to save the layout (as shown in the screenshot). By saving the layout you will save the chart the way it currently displays, this includes drawings and indicators.

 

If you then by accident move a drawing instead of the chart window you would by able to just load your layout again which will place all drawings the way you want them.

Hope this helps

Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately that workaround only applies to indicators, not drawing items. I see someone else hasbrought up this issue as well in the main post above, so i guess we'll follow up in there.

Hi  &

 

You are correct, the drawings and the layouts are applied independently so by saving the layout it will not save the drawings, there is another workaround that might help you and that is to hide the drawing from the chart when moving the window.

 

There is some good news though, we are working on a lock drawing feature that will be added to our new platform, there is no specific date for release yet but the feature is coming. Apologies for the misinformation.

 

Thanks

Anton

    • Wow. Just look at the volatility. The price action is erratic to say the least. This has happened before on quite a few occasions in the past.  In one hour from my initial post to this post the price action has reversed. It is all about waiting for a clear signal for which direction these indices are going to go in. 
    • So you have to admit this S&P chart is as bullish as you could get, traders have been waiting for the Fed who haven't disappointed, have refused to break lower during that wait and are just staring at that ATH just a short reach away. Barring a war there seems nothing to hold back the continued march onward and upward. Daily chart; 
    • I think we now have the potential and it is potential shorting opportunity on Dow Jones (Wall Street), S&P 500 (US 500) and Nasdaq (US Tech 100) as well as other indices. The FTSE 100 is not looking too good in advance of Brexit. The 'daily' chart is looking rather bearish. The price action is looking bearish. However the price has not breached any of the key moving average indicators as of yet for the US 500. Hence why I am using the word potential in terms of trading opportunity. Some of the ultra aggressive traders will already be short the S&P 500 and other similar indices but if they are wrong the price does not continue downwards then they will be out quickly.
