JJ,

Hold down the shift-key on the keyboard while either a) using the mouse scroll wheel, or b) operating the up/down arrows on the keyboards. This will allow you to zoom in/out on the profile and fit more in vertically and horizontally. Hope that's what you're looking for.

Re: IRT Features

That's great, just what I was looking for. It's funny that it's crlt up in candle charts and shift up in MP. That's what screwed me up.
Thanks for the pointer.

Re: IRT Features

Actually...in traditional charts (candle/bar), ctrl isn't needed...just up/down key (or mouse wheel) will do it.

We used the up/down key and scroll wheel for vertical scrolling in MP charts....so the shift was required for zooming.

And although there is no vertical scrollbar in traditional charts, you can scroll vertically by dragging the right half of the vertical scale up down. When you do this, your scale goes into "manual" mode (you''ll see an M in upper right corner of scale). Just click that M to take scaling back to automatic. This should all be covered in the Traditional Chart (& MP Chart) videos at www.linnsoft.com/videos

Re: IRT Features

Hey Chad, I've got an issue with my Value Area Indicator on my candle chart having different values than my MP chart. Is there a way to resolve this?
thanks

JJ, there are a few different methods used for computing a "Value Area". That "Value Area Indicator" actually predates the Market Profile chart. You can find more information on how the VA indicator computes it's values here:

http://www.linnsoft.com/tour/techind/va.htm

But it does not use the tpo-based method that the Market Profile chart does. If you want to match the MP values, use either the TPO Indicator or the Profile Indicator.

Re: IRT Features

Good morning Chad,

I'm wondering if I can get the time and sales window to float? The only way I can find to bring it up is with the toolbar on my MP chart and can't find the option to float it.
Is there a way?
thanks
JJ

Right-click inside the Time/Sales window to bring up the T/S preferences. There is a "Floating Window" checkbox in there. Check it.
