    draw tools, only work sometimes

    this is bizarre, though I'm pretty much a rookie at NT.

    on ES 06/09 all these drawing tools, vertical/horiz lines, arrows,
    rectangles, etc.... worked just fine, not matter where my bar charts
    were scrolled or compressed.

    now since I changed to ES 09/09, the insertion of drawing tools
    (text, arrows, lines, etc....) ONLY works when the chart is pressed
    up against the right hand margin.

    If I scroll the chart to the left or compressed the y axis, nothing
    gets inserted. unless maybe I recompressed the y axis a bit.
    but basically, it wants to be align on the right margin to allow me
    to use these drawing tools.

    what happened, it was working so nicely for weeks ??

    Hello,

    Thank you for your post.

    I am not able to reproduce this behaivor using the ES 09-09.

    Can you take a screenshot?

    Also, right click on your drawing object to select its properties. Do you have "Auto scale" checked?

      I don't know where exactly this "auto scale" property is, can you be more specific ?

      a screen shot would just show the candlesticks , right justified to the right margin.
      I like to uncompressed the bars, but because of my issue, they're all clumped to
      right margin.

      but now I've noticed I can spread the chart away from the right margin,
      and use the drawing tools,
      if I move it no farther than about 40% (left to right on horizontal axis).
      so if my data starts at about half way across the window (50% point), I
      can add indicators. but if I start the data at 33% across, no drawing figures
      will appear. 40% is my guesstimate on where the problem begins.

      maybe because I have no historical data yet, since just used this rollover
      ES 09-09 symbol, which haven't used before.

      I can live with this this way. but doesn't seem optimal.

      thanks....

        MACD crossover

        Dear sir,

        Greetings from Malaysia
        I am trying to construct a simple automated trading system. I want the system to buy when the Macd crosses above the Average.


        CrossAbove(MACD(12,26,9), MACD(12,26,9)Avg,1)

        this code does not work.

        I also want to sell when the Average crosses below the MACD.

        The cross over instruction is faulty. Request your assistance to fix it.
        cheers,

        Kumar
