Step 2: Chart panel preferences

A popup will appear where you can adjust your settings. The Chart panel section allows you to customize what you see on the chart:

  • Ask price: By default, the bid price is always shown and you can choose to display the ask price too.
  • Bid price: Heikin Ashi doesn’t show the bid price by default so you can set it here.
  • SL/TP handles: They are hidden unless a position/order is selected. Here, you can choose to display them regardless of the selection.
