Line Sync

Developer: Steven Dickinson

Line Sync synchronizes your manually drawn chart annotations (lines, channels, zones and text) across multiple charts.

For instance, when you manually draw support/resistance lines, trend lines, pivot points, or other key levels onto a chart, it’s often really useful to have these same levels and lines copied to a different chart, e.g. a lower timeframe chart of the same instrument. Line Sync can do just that.

Furthermore, the lines are persistent and will be remembered even if the original chart is removed.

Line Sync supports horizontal lines, vertical lines, trend lines, zones, channels and text annotation.

Line Sync also allows you to export (or import) to (or from) a file. The file is a ‘csv’ (Comma Separated Value) text file. This file format can be edited by a plain text editor (e.g. Notepad) or Excel.

NOTE: Line Sync only works with graphic objects created via its own interface. Unfortunately, this means that objects created through MarketScope’s native interface cannot be handled by the Line Sync tool.
