I look forward to it fx....

MO, awesome advice as usual. We tend to forget the simplest basics.

MetaTrader question:

"Chart shift -this option shifts the latest bar from the right screen border to the chart shift mark - a gray triangle in the upper part of a chart window. The chart shift mark can be moved horizontally with the mouse within 10 to 50 percent of the window size."

If I use the chart shift, than I give up 10% or more of prime screen real estate!

Does anyone know of a way to automatically shift to bar 0 where it is closer to the edge of the screen?

On larger screens, 10% +, is a lot of wasted space...

I use the chart shift for some of the multi time frame "multimeters", but those are only necessary on one chart, if I have 3 different time frames, than 2 of those charts don't need to use the chart shift to keep price out of the multimeter space.

I want the chart shift functionality on the other time frames just set at like 0 or 1% instead of the 10% limitation...

Doji do you draw the boxes with a fixed rule in mind?

Yes, there point of orgin is where I see momentum starting. I call them RB's.
After they form about 75 percent of the time price will retrace back into what most traders know as "Mighty Zone" if you have studied other threads. I believe it takes a RB to close across a previous RB to be important. Otherwise it gives me comfort to hold strong and go with my bias.

I have renamed them RB's due to I am working on a web project and wanted to give them a final name for the project. But, that being said, how I draw them is discussed at length earlier in this thread and they are referred to dojiboxes.
