Is there a way to "snap" trend lines in place?


New member
Instead of dragging the trend line... like the horizontal there a way to snap it into place by just clicking on the area? Seems like I have seen people do it on youtube when charting. So there has to be a way

@webdementia In chart settings, try changing "snap drawings to" from 'none' to 'OHLC'.

@webdementia I have that setting already .... I guess what Im asking is can it be snapped by just double clicking in one area and it will auto snap a line. Rather than having to drag the line out. It already tries to snap to the high or low on the candlestick.

I assume what you're trying to do is place a point on the chart and have it drawn as a horizontal line expanding to the right automatically?

If that is the case, you would need to set the option called Right Extension to On and click Save as default. (apply this to the Price Level drawing tool)
