    How to move a stop up if already at a chart top ?

    Is there a way to grab and directly move a stop higher on a chart if it is already at the top of the chart ? (Or move it lower if ata chartbottom.) I know you can do this via the Dome but am curious about a chart method...Thanks

    Chart example attached.

    Hi Alfred,

    Just click on B S1, then you can move it up or down. Click again to drop.

        Right it's a known limitation of the current implementation. It's on our list.

        Thanks for bringing this up.

          this is crucially important to me. About half of my trade set-ups require this .

          A margin of 5% above and below the price helps add some perspective also.They feel 'crowded' when they are 'crushed' up against the top and bottom. A margin alows visual space to visual potential movement better and be able to see the price patterns more clearly.

          Is there any timeframe of when this will be available?

          Thanks

            This is scheduled for a later release but we do not have a firm time frame for this at this time.

              I've found if you click on the holder and drag one tick beyond the current location of the line, then release, it actually moves the line up a tick, and all the figures down the side adjust to accommodate the extra tick. You can repeatedly do this to get extra space above and below the chart range.

                Yes, I have done this as tick by tick solution as well. When moving a good distance though it becomes tedious. In that case, I just go to the DOM and move it there. Good to know it is on the future rev list though as it will be helpful

                Also, would like to second Alfred's point about having a buffer area at the top and bottom of the charts as it does feel crowded now. One nice feature I have used on charting programs allows you to add more or less space at the top and bottom as you wish, effectively making the bars bigger or smaller, and taking up more or less space on the chart area. This is important for those of us who use support/resistance lines. But even just more buffer area would be helpful.

                Just something for future consideration.

                Thanks,
