Scale function, linked windows

Modified on Wed, 18 Oct 2023 at 02:29 PM

The Scale option allows combining side-by-side prices in clusters. This is useful for the instruments with a large range of movement relative to the price step (e.g., the futures for the RTS index).

To scale a chart:

  • Click on the highlighted icon on the chart menu bar.

  • Set the necessary scale.

  • Click Apply.

The Scale parameter sets the number of price levels to be combined.

The Scale by lower level parameter determines the mode of price level combination.

The Auto parameter determines the scale automatically.

Visually it looks like this:

Creating Linked Windows.

This function allows opening linked windows (i.e., windows that are associated with the current instrument), which display both online and historical data.

To create linked windows, right-click on the chart to open the context menu and click on Create Linked Window.

After at least one linked window has been created, a new menu item will appear in the menu. This item is responsible for the data display mode in linked windows.

Real Time Mode — linked windows will display data of the same instrument as on the chart in real time.

Historical Mode — history viewing mode. In this mode, the user is prompted to select the historical range for which data in linked windows will be displayed. The first click of the mouse on the chart determines the start positionthe second click, the end position. To change the range, delete the old range using Esc key and specify the range again. Also, the range can be shifted to the left and to the right using the corresponding keyboard keys (right / left arrow keys).

* The tape only displays the data for the selected period on the chart.
