CUSTOMISING CHARTS IN MT5 | Vantage FX

CUSTOMISING CHARTS IN MT5

Visual Customisations such as colour and chart settings can be made to any chart by right-clicking on the chart. Click on ‘Properties’ to make custom changes to your charts, or just hit F8 to bring up the properties window. You can choose individual colours for each element on your chart or you can select from pre-made colour themes.

By clicking on the ‘Common’ tab within this window, other chart settings can be defined. Below are some functions available in this tab:

Chart on foreground — places the chart in the “foreground”, moving all analytical objects “under” the price chart

Chat Shift – shifts the chart backwards by a number of bars. This setting is useful for projecting what may happen in the future.

Scale slider – adjusts the chart scale higher/lower

Scale fix One to One — fixes the chart scale at “one to one” where the size of one pip of the vertical axis in pixels is equal to the distance between the bars axes in pixels. This mode is necessary for precise constructions

Scale fix — If the scale of a chart has not been fixed, it will automatically be scaled vertically. This option disables automatic scaling and fixes the current scale

By clicking on the ‘Show’’ tab within the properties window, you can show or hide various chart elements:

Show OHLC — show/hide OPEN, HIGH, LOW and CLOSE (OHLC) bar prices in top left hand corner of chart window line

Show Quick Trading Buttons – show/hide One Click Trading buttons

Show bid price line – show/hide bid price level of the latest quote

Show ask price line – show/hide Ask price level of the latest quote

Show last price line – show/hide last price level of current market

Show period separators – show/hide date and time period separating lines
