Displaying Indicators in the Indicator Window

You can also display an indicator by right-clicking in the Indicator Window and selecting the indicator you would like to view. Select "Show All" to view all selected indicators in the Indicator Window at the same time. Selecting "Properties" will open the current indicator preferences in the Preferences tab of your Control Panel.

One Button

The One Button on the left end of your Indicator toolbar allows you to have as many indicators selected as you like, but only view them one at a time in the indicator window. To switch between each selected indicator click the Indicator Information Display to the right of the Indicator Window.

When you click on the Indicator Information Display window the indicator information will rotate to the next indicator you have selected (as simulated above).

All Button

The All Button will display all the indicators you have selected on the Indicator toolbar in the Indicator Window. You will still be able to rotate the information for each indicator to the right of the Indicator Window.

Note: The One and All buttons can be specified for each chart you have open.
