outline candles

Postby vking » 28 Apr 2011

Hello - Would it be possible to have an option to use outline candles like in this picture?

Also - It would be even better - if there is a control over the color through EL to pick - body outline color and Wick color. Have this option in NT trader as well.

Thanks.

Tried to code this manually:
- multicharts - the candles doesn't allign well(open/close)
- TS - it works fine and aligned correctly.

Would be nice if this can be natively supported in MC.

thanks

Do you mean hollow candlesticks? You can choose those in the Style tab when you double-click on your Instrument (in the Format Instrument window). In regular candle sticks, you can make the wick color different from body color.

Henry/Andy - Have you had a chance to create a bug in project site? I tried to find it and it's not there. Last time during livechat sesssion - you have identified this as a bug and mentioned you would open a bug in project site.

Thanks
