Is it possible to make the bar spacing infinitely adjustable? It currently moves in pre-defined steps that are sometimes too large for me.

I'm probably not describing the issue correctly. What I would like to do is have the ability to drag the market opening on a one minute chart to the left border of the chart at any time during the trading day. The methods described in your link don't give me the ability to do that. For example, if I try to drag the time scale at the bottom of the chart it seems to jump to a pre-defined interval. I am not able to precisely position the market open on the left side of the chart. I used to use the Quotetracker program (no longer supported by my broker) which had the infinitely variable ability. Am I doing something wrong? Do my settings need to be adjusted?

If you are adjusting the bar spacing by 1 pixel, the minimum, the number of bars from the opening bar for the trading day to the last bar in the chart is a certain number of bars, and assuming you want to have the last bar in the chart always visible, then please explain how you would always be able to accomplish what you want.


In any case, we would assume that you know how to use the scrollbar at the bottom of the chart, and know how to change the spacing of the chart bars to be able to get the opening bar at the left side of the chart irrespective of what is the last displayed bar.

We cannot provide further help on this subject.

Experimenting with this, after adjusting the bar spacing to get the first part of the trading day still visible and close to the left edge of the chart, you can then scroll the chart back to create fill space on the right side to get the first bar exactly at the left.
