How to keep current price marked when scrolling left?

I currently use the "Last Trade Price Box" (by default enabled in the Graphics Settings) to mark the current / lastly traded price on the right price scale.

However, when I scroll the chart to the left so that the latest bar is not visible anymore, the marker no longer shows the current price but rather the price that was lastly traded in the last visible bar.

Is there any way to change that, i.e. can I somehow always keep the current price marked on the right price scale no matter how far I scroll the chart to the left?

I already tried to use the Current Price Line study instead, but its label is only visible as long as at least the current day is within view, so it doesn't really solve my problem when I go back multiple days.

Is there any other way to achieve this?

The "Current Price Line" is the best way to do this. Just set the Input for Number of Bars to Display On to some very large number so that it covers the number of bars you want to scroll back. Refer to the information here:

Thanks for the quick reply! This works fine. I overlooked this specific study setting.
