Chart Clarity

Chart Clarity

I simply cannot get chart clarity. I find myself viewing Metatrader 4 charts and placing trades through CTrader. I am a technical trader but if I were to use CTrader solely for my trading, I feel I would be just gambling with the lack of chart clarity.

It almost appears like the black background isn't exactly black, but dark grey, although I have obviously chosen black. The candles just do not stand out, and adjusting the width is either too thin or too thick.

Is it possible to add more colour choices to the charting? Has anyone else raised negative points about the charts?

You can change the chart colors from the top center menu:

Yes, I have already done this, and your white chart looks quite clear. I use black background

A little hard to describe, but I cannot get the same candle 'clarity' as I can achieve with metatrader.

I even took 2 screen shots, one of each, and loaded them into Paint but they look very much the same. I will post them on here but I think they will look the same anyway.

I am heavily reliant on candles and price action, but find I cannot gauge my trades accurately with the CTrader charts.

Don't know if you can tell, but the meta background is 'blacker', this may be all that would make the difference.

Does CTrader use RBG or CMYK? What colour format?
