    Lock chart scroll

    Is there a way to lock a chart so it can not scroll away from current price where the little arrow will not appear showing current price is not on chart? Or at least if it does scroll away from current price a big red flashing arrow appears to warn you that current price is not displayed?

    Hello FiftyFib FX,

    Thanks for posting.

    It's not currently possible to lock a chart in this manner. If the current price isn't being displayed, the color of the price marker will change from black to gray. It's possible to customize the color for inactive price markers by right-clicking the chart and changing the color setting for 'Inactive price markers'. Setting this to a different color, such as bright red, may help to identify when the price you're looking at isn't the current one.

    Please let me know if I may be of further assistance.

      My chart price marker does not change color, it stays same color(is there a setting I need to adjust?), a small arrow appears in the top right of the chart whenever scrolled that is obscured or covered if you have a stop at the same or near the level of the arrow marker that indicates chart is scrolled. Also the price marker is static when chart is scrolled and only becomes dynamic if the current bar is forming and auto scrolls with every new bar formed. It's a real pain in the you know what if you touch a drawing or move a stop and accidentally scroll a chart by just one bar. I'm surprised at the fact that something as important as current price disappears when chart is scrolled. It should be dynamically showing at all times whether the chart is scrolled or not. Has no one pointed this out before?

          I sent what you requested and hope this platform issue is addressed quickly and corrected. Knowing where current price is trading at all times is critical whether or not a chart is scrolled. Thank you

            Have looked at this before...in the first screen shot the price line and dynamic price marker are shown as magenta....
            and the last current bar has not moved into the right margin....

            In the 2nd screen shot the current last price has moved into the right margin and the dynamic price line and inactive price marker auto change to blue....
            It seems this would be possible to do this as a custom price line indicator......

            Would it be possible to also make the blue price marker dynamic when the price remains in the right margin ??

              Hello,

              Thanks for posting.

              The following free indicator from our User app Share website will generate a price marker for the last traded price which remains on the chart when the current bar isn't on screen:
