Trendline accuracy improvement
15 Feb 2018, 15:35


I like to make use of Trendlines and Rays on many charts at once. Unfortunately longterm Trendlines are inaccurate or just useless when viewed on a smaller timeframe where the historical data is not already loaded.

It takes a lot of time to always scroll back all the way to the anchorpoints of the Trendline and forgetting this could lead to unwanted trades.

Programmatically this could be solved by calculating more recent anchorpoints on creation of the Trendline, or when switching to a lower timeframe. Some other trading platforms seem to solve it this way and I would be more than happy if cTrader would follow.
