OHLC tick length

Postby iso » 02 Feb 2012

Hello,

Is there a way for MC to shorten the "Open" and "Close" ticks on the OHLC bars or make it possible for the user to set them at their desired length? This may seem trivial but if you look at the attached charts you will see what I mean. The open and close ticks are so long in MC that they connect, or at times overlapp, the bars next to them. This makes it very difficult to read the bars. The one chart is of MC and the other is one that has smaller open and close ticks. For the visual trader, this makes a big difference.

Thanks for the consideration

Hello Iso,

The bar spacing can be increased/decreased using the "Control" toolbar (MultiCharts->View->Toolbars->Control).
You can increase/decrease the bar width in Format->Instrument->Format->Style tab.
Unfortunately there is no way to set the spacing manually.

What I am talking about does not have to do with bar spacing, it has to do with the length of the open and close ticks on an OHLC bar.

There is no such feature to change the bar's OHLC length.
You may want to submit a feature request to the Project Management of our web site so other users can vote for it: https://www.multicharts.com/pm/

Is it possible for you guys to shorten (or make it user defined) the "Open" and "Close" ticks on the OHLC bars in a future release?

Thanks

Hello Iso,

We will make "Open" and "Close" ticks on the OHLC bars shorter in MultiCharts 8.7 Release.

I didn't see any difference in 8.7. Will this be fixed in an upcoming release?

Thanks

Hello iso,

This improvement has been postponed. I will update the topic once I have any news from the developers.

Where do I go to reduce the open and close tick length? By default they still seem to overlap.

Thanks

The default tick length has been reduced. This improvement is not optional.
Probably your Bar Spacing value is too small and the bars are too much compressed.
