hi thaNKS for your prior answer on how to show y-values for trendlines using the "chart values for tools" ...the part i cant work out is how to get an exact value for where a trendline will come in?

i know i can hover over the approximate area, but i need to know to the exact tick...if its 2610, then next day is 2620...obviously it comes in at 2630 on the 3rd day, but other charting packages (CQG / Bloomberg) will give you an exact calculation for that specific tendline...rather than just approximating over the area and getting a result....which is quite helpful for longer and more complex trendlines....any solve here? thanks v much. consdinering the full purchase. this would get me to sign up for sure.cheers. Kerrin.

Are you using the Ray drawing tool?:

Those drawings will extend to the right and you can add space to the right side of the chart to see exactly where they are at each chart bar:

There is not way to see the Ray drawing value at each chart bar other than using the Chart Values tool to hover at the approximate level. But visually it is visible. And by the use of a chart grid, you can see where it is at each chart bar:
