    Design option for order display bars...

    My feeling is that the boxes on the left end of the horizontal order display bars within the chart itself can often clutter the chart...obscuring chart patterns or a particular area of the chart one may be interested in...

    As an option...how about being able to keep the order display information boxes within the space to right...with order display lines extending into the chart a user defined % of chart width...I believe this would give a cleaner look to the chart while maintaining all current functionality...

    Schematic screen shot below on this idea...


    Thanks...

      Additional considerations...

      Here are some additional ideas in this area...

      Screen shot 1 below shows how an an initial order may appear...the dot at the end of the line shows when the order was placed...the line length and dot would adjust as the chart updates to remain fixed at the point of the initial order....or would change in price and time to reflect a new position that the order may be moved to.

      Screen shot 2 below shows appearance at an initial fill....the dot at the end of the fill line shows the exact entry in price and time...this dot and line length will move as the chart updates to remain fixed at the point of initial entry.

      Screen shot 3 below shows the appearance some time after another initial fill ( this is a hypothetical view for demonstration only...the stop shown would have actually been already hit on this trade)....lines and dots have updated to remain in time where the initial trade was placed. If a stop or target is moved, their line lengths and end dots would change on the chart to reflect the point in time and price at which the change was made.

      Perhaps the width of the info boxes at the right side of all lines could be trimmed down slightly...

      Thanks....

          Clutter to a minimum...

          Here is another option...continually project the trade entry line to the point of entry
          on the chart...but keep the stop and target lines and dots at the last bar on chart.
          This reduces clutter on the chart to a minimum.

          Thanks...
