Default Chart Template - Load..., Save As..., Add to...

I would like to see a feature added to the Chart right-click Templates selections, so that one could add a template to an existing chart without wiping out what's already there.

This would be useful for specifying special settings that could be used to load an indicator that's used under different circumstances, such as for varying combinations of different time-frames and different instruments, where one's indicator settings might have to vary to some extent to be completely useful.

Using V7's indicator defaults is a step in that direction, but if chart templates could have an "Add to..." chart selection that didn't wipe out the other indicators and settings already on the chart, I think this would help the versatility in this area.

Furthermore (as I often like to point out with my suggestions), NinjaTrader has most of the code written for this already, so I'd expect that this should be a small-incremental-change (time-wise), which I suspect many NinjaTrader users would greatly appreciate.

Futures, foreign currency and options trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones financial security or lifestyle. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

CFTC Rules 4.41 - Hypothetical or Simulated performance results have certain limitations, unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not been executed, the results may have under-or-over compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profit or losses similar to those shown.
