Hi guys, I need some help,
Every time when I draw up trending or down trending lines, defining swing highs or swing lows, as the price prints new bars and moves to the left, my trend lines move out of the highs or lows and shift away from them. What do I do to make them stay?

Any plans in the future to get this fixed so you can just draw a trend line without stopping on a visible bar and not having it move?

How would that be possible?

Not sure as I am not a programmer and have no desire to try and be one. I guess I just assumed from using other charting platforms that could do that (without mentioning them cuz I do like your platform better). Thanks for the response you have been helpful in the past and I appreciate it.

There is not a practical and reliable way to do this . Since the ending point of the line is at a specific Date-Time in the future and when the chart bars do not have a fixed time per bar, that Date-Time in the future which has not yet occurred, can change.

If the ending point of a chart drawing is identified as ending a specified number of bars into the future, then that has to be continuously adjusted, and there are many things which could cause that to change unexpectedly and make the problem worse. So we would go through a lot of complex work to partially solve one issue but actually really only worsen the issue overall.

The way it works now is all technically correct is logical. The user just needs to understand, that they are drawing into an unstable future space if they choose to use chart bars which are not based upon a fixed amount of time.
