With crosshairs active:

  1. I can open a position using the main chart trader buttons
  2. I can not activate any trading buttons on the chart positions line [AP, Reverse, Double, Close]

Obviously this is not convenient for anyone who chart trades fast markets and uses the crosshairs often.

Hi dmn,

For fast actions, you can always use Ctrl+C to enable/disable crosshair without having to go back to the line tools.

Hi Panagiotis, I always appreciate you attentive replies.

However Ctrl-C isn't fast enough when it really matters. The fastest I have is clicking the center wheel on my mouse to toggle cross hairs. But that comes with the risk of accidentally scrolling that chart at really the wrong time.
