Cursor price tracking only in prices chart.

This one is almost a bug. I can't see how anyone would want this behavior but I could be wrong. The price tracking on the main prices chart tracks price in the secondary charts (in my case RSI and %R). For me it is a bug since I can't see any value in this and it is distracting. However having the vertical tracking there is great.

To reproduce it you need to view a stock that has prices in the same range as the RSI values or the %R values. I guess I never noticed it before because I was always trading the e-mini which had values way higher than the values in the RSI and %R.

Now that I am actually trying to find trades this problem has become more annoying. It is clearly a design bug and no one is going to be wanting horizontal price tracking in any subchart unless it has the symbol's price (I am not even sure if it is possible to put the symbol's price in the lower subcharts). Not only that it does not even make any sense across different resolutions for the same indicator (RSI for example). In other words RSI 40 in 5 minute bars has no relationship to RSI 40 in daily bars or any other resolutions size. Even if a pullback to RSI 40 in both is a good trend trade indicator the user is not going to want a horizontal line running through these subcharts distracting them. Fixing this problem would probably reduce code that is being executed. Again an e-mini futures traders will not even be aware of this design bug because the lowest futures price I have ever seen is 600 (most of these lower subchart indicators only have a scale up to 100). It is the stock traders who will notice it.

I have actually solved this by leaving on "Show Cross" and having only "Cursor Tracking by Time" on. This way the cursor tracking by price does not get down into the lower subcharts of RSI and %R creating visual distraction and confusion. I don't really need "cursor tracking by price" on the other charts. I only need the horizontal "Show Cross" line in the immediate chart (the immediate lower subchart as well). I often use this horizontal line to more accurately determine double tops or double bottoms in any of these three subcharts.

Okay so all this comment does is take this issue down to a very low priority for me at least and since no one else has voted for it as of 2017/Nov/24 there is probably no need to keep this entry except as a way to tell people of this work around solution which may also work for them.
