Show Current Price of an indicator on Trace

Recommended Posts

Is there a setting or combination of settings which would allow the current price of an indicator to be displayed on the right side of a chart when the cursor hovers over the indicator?

The current price of the indicator will always display if you select  :Show line prices on the indicator selection box but when multiple indicators converge the prices are overlaid and cannot be read. To reduce the clutter most of my indicators do not have the SHOW PRICE option selected.

My current chart settings are:  Always Show Trace and Default Trace

Even when they converge, the "trace" values should not overlap. The right side values may. So if you move the cursor all the way to the right, the trace values would show you what the indicator values are.

Correct the trace values do not overlap.  Their prices will show on trace with the cursor positioned in the top right corner but only if the indicator text box has the Show Current Value selected. 

If the indicator text box has the Show Current value checked the price will show on the right of the chart and will overlap other price(S) when the indicators converge, that is the dilemma. If all the indicators are checked they will show on the trace but because it is so cluttered it is very difficult to figure which price goes with which indicator.

The only way I can figure to get the value of an indicator is to uncheck the Show Current Value of the other converging indicators, apply the changes or close the edit indicator box, see the value and then go back and recheck the boxes. 

When you point to the indicator it becomes highlighted and the indicator name is also highlighted on the top line of the chart. If the current value was shown on the right of the chart (when the Show Current Value is unchecked)  and disappear when the cursor is moved it would solve the problem.

The price for each indicator could be shown at the top of the chart but that would take up a lot of additional space and not that desirable.

It's an idea. Will look into it.
