Description

Hi
This is a really useful and neat tool that i think would be a fantastic addition to MC and that would fundamentally improve it's functionality, making it's use more productive for many. Other platforms have it, and i know just how useful it is.

It is a small tool that quickly allows you to measure the differences between two points on a chart, be that for example two lows or a low to a high. When in a chart, if you were to click and hold the left mouse button on the part of the bar (call that the anchor point) you are interested in (either O,H,L,C) then move your cursor to the next point you are interested in (say the close of a bar 5 days later), the tool would continuously draw a dotted line between the anchor point and wherever your mouse cursor is. A small pop up window (like the one that appears when you left click and release), which would show you the start date/time and end date/time, the number of bars included in that range, and the change in price and all plotted indicators over that period of time.

Please seriously consider it. I presume you could re-purpose the data box that currently pops up with the left click and release.

Looking forward to your consideration and reply.
Thanks
Syn

Here's a like to the forum, where i've been able to post a screenshot from another platform. This tool will calc the different between whatever point you choose, be it on price (like the pic in link) or on an indicator.
