See the Size of a Candle by Pointing Your Mouse
In MetaTrader 5
See the Candle and Body Range in Pips
Hover your mouse over a candle and get the following information…
This indicator shows you:
- The total candle range only (in pips)…OR
- The body range only (in pips)…OR
- Both of the above at the same time
This indicator also allows you to:
- Determine which corner the text appears in
- Change the font size of the text
- Adjust the position of the text
- Change the space between the lines
So you can have a small font in the upper left corner…
…or a big font in the lower left corner.
…or whatever works best for you.
Why Our Indicator is Better Than Other Candle Range Indicators
Most of the other candle range indicators that I found on the internet show you the range of every single candle, in a graph on the bottom of the chart.
In real-world trading, that's completely unnecessary and takes up valuable space on your screen. Here's how much space one of those indicators can take up.
(I didn't want to use real screenshots from other products, because that would violate copyrights. But this simply shows you how much space those indicators use.)
Our indicator takes up very little space on your chart and you can move it around to a place that's convenient for you.
You will only see the candle and/or body range of the candle that your mouse is currently hovering over.
Not a bunch of unnecessary information, like with other indicators.
