    started a topic is there a way to ''reset'' chart auto scaling?

    is there a way to ''reset'' chart auto scaling?

    assuming chart ''auto scaling'' means displayed bars vertically use all available vertical space ... when the bar display evolves into a state where the bars do not use all the available vertical space [ie] the bars are squeezed into the top or bottom areas of the chart

    is there a way to ''reset'' chart auto scaling so that all the available chart area is again utilized by the bars?

    note: I can ''reset '' now by recreating the chart anew, but I am looking for a control icon or other faster method to ''rescale'' so that I don't have to recreate.

    Just for the sake of completeness, I found this other indicator which even on Autoscale set to True doesn't seem to affect the position of the bars http://www.ninjatrader.com/support/f...tid=-1&lpage=1
    Perfect for my needs.

    Oh well, then. I suppose the quickest way to examine the past bars and still keep the Autoscale option would be to save and load a template not including that indicator. Thanks anyway for your effort, Jason.

    Unfortunately, the 'Auto scale' setting does not make a difference for this indicator. If you scroll back in time, price bars can be plotted a different prices, however the line will still be included. This extends the price axis and vertically compresses the price bars.

    That's what the indicator is supposed to do: mark with a line the movements of the price in real time. Applied to a new chart I see no difference whether the Autoscale set to True or False: the line will always be visible on the chart and everything else will be adjusted to this "command" unfortunately.

    No worries. When I test the indicator on my end, it plots a horizontal line at the current price.

    Does it make a difference if you create a new chart and apply the AaPriceLine indicator?

    Sorry, for some reason I thought it was a native indicator. I downloaded it from this link http://www.ninjatrader.com/support/f...catid=1&id=321
    Thanks for taking the time to look at it.

    Yes, I know. I am not sure why the line is still in display. Normally indicators are excluded if 'Auto scale' is set to False. You can test it using the Pivots indicator.

    I cannot find the AaPriceLine indicator upon searching the forum for "AaPriceLine". Could you please provide the indicator so I can test it on my end. Perhaps it is somehow different and does not allow the 'Auto scale' setting to function correctly.

    That IS the AaPriceLine, Jason...

    There is still a blue line at 1.5290 which extends the price axis. Perhaps this indicator is different and cannot use 'Auto scale'. Where did you find this indicator?

    Can you please provide me this indicator, so I can test it on my end. You can find instructions to export indicators at the link below.

    I don't have pivot indicators on my chart. If you're referring to the lines on my previous pics, they're simply horizontal grid lines set to 10 ticks distance. Anyway I removed them as well and the AaPriceLine Autoscale is set to False. You see the result in the pic

    Can you please double check the Indicator menu and check if 'Auto scale' is set to False for the AaPriceLine indicator. This should work.

    What happens if you apply the Pivots indicator with 'Auto scale' set to False?

    Thanks, Jason, but I had tried that one already. As you see in the pic, the bars are still squeezed to the bottom and the AaPriceLine won't leave the field LOL

    Hello alright_it,

    You can exclude the AaPriceLine indicator from the price axis by setting 'Auto scale' to False in the Indicator menu. Only when set to True, the indicator will be included in the price axis.

    I think I've found what my problem is: in all my templates I have the AaPriceLine indicator loaded, which will appear on the chart no matter what its setting are. So of course the price bars will be squeezed to the bottom or the top depending on the current price position. I also forgot to mention in my previous posts that the problem presents itslefonly when looking at past data, and it won't appear on a current chart for obvious reasons. Bottom line. to examine past data, it's better to get rid of the AaPriceLine indicator if one has it on. I hope I've been clear and that would help whoever has been experiencing the same problem.
