    Chart trading from charts with "one click"

    Hello

    Would you please consider adding a "one click functionality" when trading from the charts?

    Unless I have misunderstood something, you need to first right click, then scroll up in a drop down menu to find something like "Buy limit 10 @ 3830" to place an order directly in the chart. This is not only hugely impractical (as in it simply is not an option) for scalping, but it is also very error-prone in case you happen to pick the wrong option in the process (I have done it...). One option that I know for a fact would be appreciated by many, would be a the ability to not have to scroll through a drag down menu, and simply accomplish this with one click. For example, you could envision CTRL + left click mouse to bypass the menu scrolling and simply enter the order as a limit order or whatever strategy you have set as your default. This feature is sold separately by at least a few vendors. It should really be a native feature in NT8.


    Thank you.

    I have submitted this as a feature request to the Development Team. I will follow up with an internal tracking number for your reference as soon as it is created.

        If you are scalping, get a programmable keypad and use hotkeys. Hotkeys give you fast one-key functionality for orders and other NT actions.

        This is a good keypad: https://xkeys.com/xkeys/keys.html

          Thanks Lancer. Yeah, I do use hot keys and think they are an absolute necessity. They don't replace seemless chart trading for me though. Hot keys are static (eg join the bid, offer 2 ticks about the best offer etc), whereas chart is dynamic without any fixed benchmarks. Depends on your trading style and what you're trying to accomplish of course...

              Hi StockTrader88,

              If you want to place trades directly on the chart with a left-click and avoid that pop-up menu, check out the "ATM One-Click Trader" at the link below with more information and a video demo if you haven't already.

                Before you spend your $s, there are several chart trader indicators on this forum that perhaps do what you are looking for, if you do a search, including these indicators:

                  Unfortunately, that's not it. The closest is probably this (see below), but unfortunately it does not work with "ChartTrader". That's the hardest part of the whole script. The 3rd party solutions presented above are nice, but the open script is always better...

                      The point is that there are several indicators that with or without minor edits would do the work. But, nothing is wrong with the easy one-click buy or sell buttons in default chart trader when it is open and using an ATM Strategy to place conditional entry and stops, etc.

                        Hi,

                        If it's that simple for you, could I ask for your help with the indicator I've referenced? Could you make these minor changes so that the indicator can interact with ChartTrader?

                        Thank you!

                              Yes, I did! In that post, Chelsea answered my own question. So I was trying to follow it, but it seems to be pretty complicated (or so it seems to me). But as I have already written, if it is easy for you, would you be so kind as to share your work? Or at least an attempt, even a failed one.

                              Thanks!
