    Performance between Draw and Plot?

    I have a bunch (15-20) of price levels that I want to draw on my charts and was wondering if there is a performance difference using drawHorizontalLine and the plot methods. Does plotting take less of a performance hit than drawing the horizontal lines? I need to have the lines stay up and I specify the values in the initialize method. Since these are constant values, what would be the most optimal way to draw them?

    Thanks

    20 plots will likely take more resources than 20 lines.

      Does it make a difference if I remove all the draw objects and then redraw them again? Also, when I do a draw, I can manually move the lines. Is there a way to make them "stick" so that they cannot be moved?

        I'm not sure if removing and redrawing will be beneficial. It seems like extra steps. If you could already leave them up why spend the additional computational power to redraw?

        I don't believe making the line stationary is currently supported.
