Using the Global Cross Hair
The Global Cross Hair must be enabled on more than one chart in order to view its functionality.
The images below show two ES charts, a 1 Min and 5 Min, both with Global Cross Hair enabled. Notice the cross hair values in each chart are the same. The active cursor is shown by diagonal dash marks around the cursor intersection as shown in the image below left. When the cursor is moved, all cursors in charts with Global Cross Hair enabled will move as well to stay on the same time and price.
Global Cross Hair Tips
|•||If the the active Global Cross Hair moves outside the viewable horizontal range of any other chart with Global Cross Hair enabled, the horizontal axis in the inactive charts will automatically scroll to keep aligned with the active cursor. This can be enabled/disabled in the Chart Properties window by setting the property "Global cross hair time axis scrolling" to True or False.|
|•||Global Cross Hair may not be as useful when it is enabled in charts with large time frame differences like a 1 Min and 60 Min chart. For each bar that is scrolled in the 60 Min chart, the 1 Min chart cursor will scroll 60 bars making it hard to follow.|
