Rectangle
The rectangle is a simple drawing tool. Typically rectangles are used for highlighting mean-reverting markets, support and resistance price levels or chart patterns.

You can find the rectangle tool in the Chart Tools group in the toolbar.

Entering a Rectangle

  1. Open a symbol chart.
  2. Click on the rectangle tool in the toolbar.
  3. Click into the chart to set the anchor point.
  4. Keep the mouse button pressed and draw the rectangle. Release the mouse button when done.

Editing a Rectangle

  • To move the rectangle, drag it with the mouse (the mouse pointer turns into a hand symbol) and move it freely. Release the mouse button when done.
  • To move single sides of the rectangle up/down or left/right, click an anchor point in the middle of a side and drag it.
  • To change the size of the rectangle, click an anchor point in the corner of the rectangle and drag it.
  • You can duplicate a rectangle by double-clicking on it.
  • When the rectangle is selected, you can edit the properties in the toolbox.
  • To delete the rectangle, right-click on it and select Delete from the context menu. Alternatively, select the rectangle and press the DEL key.
