A template is a group of settings that you can save in order to apply to a chart or group of charts.  This feature eliminates the need to alter and customize charts on an individual basis. From Candlestick Colors, to Fib and trendline colors, you can customize about every aspect of your Chart.

How do I save a template?

To create a template:

  1. Right click on a blank section of the chart.

  2. Select “Settings" from the chart menu.

  1. Add any desired indicators from left toolbar of the chart.  

  2. When finished, right click on a blank section of the chart.

  3. Select “Save template” from the chart menu. 

  1. Enter a description to save the template.

  2. Click “Save”.

  1. You can now apply the template to new and existing charts.

*Note: Chart Templates will NOT retain number of Bars in Memory.
*Note: Chart Templates WILL retain any Chart Elements on the Chart when a Template is saved.

How do I download a template?

To download a template:

  1.  Click on the “Services” menu. 

  2. Select “Downloads”. 

  1. Click on the "Template" tab.
