    Fixed scale charts, but retain auto-centring

    Hi,

    I would like my charts to be fixed scale, but I would also like them to continue to move as price develops. Is this possible?

    The reason for this is because as it is, I have to either accept that sometimes all the data on the chart gets squished and the chart moves itself, or I manually change the scale, but then have to re centre the chart myself as price moves. Neither is ideal.

    I would like fixed scale, with scrolling up and down as the current price reaches the top/bottom of the screen. Preferably with an optional top and bottom margin. If not possible, please consider this a feature request.

    Thanks.

    Hello pjsmith,

    Unfortunately this is not supported. A chart can only have one or the other - fixed or automatic scaling. I will forward the suggestion to support a combination of the two to development to put it on the list of possible future enhancements.

      Hi Jason, and thank you psmith,

      please add my vote here. I also find it highly desirable to scale my chart manually such that the grid lines are a certain distance apart on my screen and keep it that way. This way I have a better sense for the size of a price movement. It's just the auto-scrolling up and down that is missing, while keeping the scale constant.

      I am looking forward to the day when the development team will be able to exit "bug fix mode" and enter "feature mode".

      Kind regards,
      Stefan.

            Please add me as a vote for this feature! Would absolutely love to have this. Also, could this possibly be done programmatically? I.E. use an indicator or strategy that resizes the chart Y-axis scale by a specified range (i.e. +/- 10 points) instead of a maximum and minimum price?

              Saw your reply to this. For info, and I have no connection with this co other than being a very happy paying client, Discotrading have a _free_ indicator called "dtfixed scale" which does just this and works perfectly. Obviously, many people have seen the need, just not Ninjatrader Google them and you should find it.

                Hey PJ, I checked out the site and found an indicator for NT 8 that seems to work. Thanks for the reply!
