Add "horizontal ray" trendline

Hi!

I would love if you could add the "horizontal ray" feature that exists on Tradingview. I think it would be a pretty easy addition.

It is a trendline that goes horizontal to the right from where you anchor it. Typically used to mark out a high, low, open, close etc when you dont want to have line across your whole chart.

Right now I use the cTrader trendline to do it which is much work:

- First press the trendline.
- Right click and make 100% horizontal with the "angle" tool.
- Click "extend to inifinity

Would this be possible? Let me know if you need more information.

Thank you very much,
Kind greetings,

Ben Whittaker.

Hi Ben,

We already have a horizontal line. I am not sure what is the difference with what you propose.

It doesn't go back to the left only into the future from the point you click. It doesn't over crowd the charts

Exactly, as "sdhunter" says, it only goes into the future from the point I click which doesn't make the chart so much of a mess when there are several points I do this with.

Like this:

Not like this:

As you can see, the last one makes more of a mess. Now imagine having 10 of those lines on the chart, which only is supposed to show obvious highs or lows. It gets hard to seperate them from normal horisontal levels.

What do you think? Is this possible to manage? It would be extremely much appreciated from a loyal supporter of your platform, I absolutely love it. :) 

Kind regards,

Great to hear! It would be extremely appreciated as it would make my days with cTrader much easier, as it's the one tool I use the most.

Thank you in advance if it ever gets done.
