Hi SC support,

Is there a way to offset a whole chart by a fixed price number? Since reliable futures data are only available by paying costy fees to some data services, it is a good idea to use streaming real time FX data as a reference. But there is often a price difference between FX data and the futures data, for example, the difference in AUDUSD FX and futures prices is about 65 pips currently. I would like to plot a AUDUSD FX chart with the price for the whole chart offset 65 pips and use the chart as an alternative for futures data. This offset sometimes can be positive and other times can be negative.

There may be a built-in study that does this. But this is easy to do by creating an ACSIL study that uses a price graph type of style for the Graph Draw Type and adds the amount that you want. You then would enable Display As Main Price Graph in the study settings.

I would also like to add a volume profile to such a chart. There is a way to do it conveniently: leave the original chart intact and draw a volume profile (the volume by price study) to it. Is it possible to SC to add a second price axis to the chart by the side of the origianl price axis? For the second price axis there is an option to set the offset value so that it can shift a fixed price relative to the original price axis. The idea is to create a study to add a second price axis which can have an offset (a fixed shift) relative to the original price axis. Then when the cursor is moved around in the chart, the price box will show up on the two axes. The two axes will be synced so that they move or scale in a same way. This second axis can also be added to the left side of the chart. Can this be done?

Try setting both the Real-time and Historical Price Multipliers in Chart >> Chart Settings >> Advanced Settings 2 to a number a little above or below 1.0 to accomplish adding or subtracting a small amount.

Very good idea. Thanks. The multiplier will be valid over a large price move (even thousands pips) and only needs to be adjusted occasionally.
