Signal Connecting Line

Postby TJ » 19 Jul 2009

Signal Connecting Line

This is a very good visual aid.


Is it possible to draw a Current Position Connecting Line?
..from the current entry to the current price?

(or maybe to the previous close, so that the line does not jump as much?)

I have attached an illustration.

Not sure if this is what you want but you can use TL_New_Self_s to draw a trend line starting at the know date and time of your entry, ending at the current date and time. As the date or time changes you can update the end point using TL_SetEND_s to adjust the line dynamically.

sure I can whip up a few lines of code and have it drawn...

but that means I have to add it to every signal.


I thought it would be easier if MC would just extend the line, since they already have it programmed.

I see your point. Yes, that would be a nice addition to MC. But so would a lot of other ideas posted on this forum but none of them appear to be taken seriously. For example, the ability to stop and start plotting a line to leave gaps, just like an old fashioned pen plotter would. Also, the ability to plot vertical lines. But alas the guys at MC don't think these ideas are worthy of consideration. That's why I suggested the trend line.

TJ,
Thank you for the suggestion. We will keep it in mind.
Currently we are not adding any new features to MC 5.5. It is the only way to debug and release a stable product, but we will keep this feature in mind.

ok... I have finally got off my lazy bum and wrote a function to draw the line.
