[User Discussion] - Indicator scaling

Support Request:

I have a simple ergodic indicator on a chart below the main price graph. No matter how I set the scaling options, it always wanders off the screen. Any way to fix this?

Thnks

Reset the scale by selecting Chart >> Reset Scales.

And make certain that the Scale Range for the study itself is set to Automatic:

Great, and for 30 seconds that works. Any real way to fix this? Any way to keep zero in the center?

We are not clearly understanding the issue then. Please post an image of the chart when you see a problem with the study, by following these steps:

It is a histogram chart. The zero line/center of the chart wanders off the screen. It is rescaling itself constantly but the zero line does not stay centered. It wanders off the screen. +40 will be the center and the histogram will be off the screeen.

This is not making sense to us. We are still not clear on this. We must see an image. Please post an image of the chart when you see a problem with the study, by following these steps:

An image will do you no good. One minute zero is in center, a few minutes later zero is off the screen. What is so hard to grasp? Do you know what a histogram chart is? It has a horizontal line (zero) at the center and the histo builds above and below it. It is nice if the zero stays at the center. Mine does not. The zero keeps moving up and down as the chart progresses. Scale Range is set to automatic. Is there an option to "Keep zero centered"?

This does not make sense. You should not see this as long as you have selected Chart >> Reset Scales , have not altered the scale of that Study manually, and you have confirmed that the Scale Range for the study itself and no other study, is set to Automatic.

Refer to this documentation to access the Study Settings for the study itself:

So this is what I get with "Reset Scales" NIce and it stays put but it is way off center with lots of wasted space above. If I center it manually then in a few miutes it will again wander off the screen. Thoughts?

Either there is another study in that chart region or you still have not set the Scale for the study itself to Automatic. Please post the Chartbook, by following these steps:

Yes!, that is the answer to the whole problem. Lines that are not drawn are effecting the scale. Anyway to stop that and only have it scale based on what is drawn?

What do you mean by "lines that are not drawn"?

Well...Ergodic is made of three pieces Erg, Erg Signal line, and Erg Oscillator. I only draw the last one. The first two use the draw style "Do Not Draw" so they do not clutter up my chart.

Set the Subgraph Draw Style for lines which you do not want to see to "Ignore".

you can also right click the value scale, then click scale, then click constant range and uncheck autocentering, uncheck all 3 "constant range scale" settings at the bottom of the window. now you can set your scaling using the value scale left click and position it where you want and it should not move

i use one of my studies like this

Thanks trade2day. That worked well on ES charts, not at all on EU charts, sort of on CL charts. Seems to have a mind of its own.. When I adjust it to the middle it jerks back to off the screen.

ES charts holding nicely, CL wandering still. Settings exactly the same. Odd.
