Can anyone help me increase the MACD Diff histogram bar height while maintaining the MACD moving average lines proportion? Thanks in advance.

You will probably need to add another instance of MACD and set it only display the MACD Difference. The other Subgraphs need to set to "Ignore".

You can use the Study Subgraph Multiply study, based on the MACD study and the MACD DIff, set to the same chart region as the MACD, with the MACD Diff draw style set to Ignore.

Thanks Tom, but when I apply the Study Subgraph Multiply study, the histo is magnified at the total expense of the MACD lines, I can't get them to show at all. I still want the lines to show with just a taller histogram.

Try this:
1) Add the Study Subgraph Multiply study
-set the Based On to the MACD study
-set the Chart Region to the same as the MACD study
-set the Input Data to MACD Diff
-set the Multiplier to your desired value
-set the Draw Style to Bar
-set the color and width

2) On the MACD study, set the MACD Diff (SG3) Draw Style to Ignore.

This setup should only multiply the MACD Diff because it is the only one drawn by the Study Subgraph Multiply study. The other lines will be drawn by the MACD study.

That did it Tom, thanks so much for your help. I think I was using the Study SubgraphS Multiply and only setting the one study was interfering. Thanks again.
