Free floating charts
Usage: Press and hold the SHIFT-key on your keyboard.
Chart will switch into free floating mode, you can drag the chart as you like, in any direction.
Usage: Activate by pressing once the 'F' key on your keyboard.
Cross-Hair will show up and stay enabled until you turn it off by pressing the 'F' key again. It does not interfere with the builtin Cross-Hair from MT5.
Measuring the chart is done by pressing the right mouse button, then moving the mouse to where you want to go.
As the Cross-Hair gets closer to a current bar, a magnetic line will be displayed.
While the Cross-Hair is active, OHLC and Time details are displayed in upper left corner of the Chart.
Usage: Activate Speed-Scrolling-Mode by pressing and holding TAB on your keyboard, then start scrolling with the mouse wheel.
Once engaged, the mode will stay on, even if you stop holding the TAB-Button. You can easily recognise Speed-Scrolling is active by the display of date and time.
Usage: Activate Snail-Scrolling by pressing and holding the SHIFT-Button on your keyboard.
Snail-Scrolling is also available while in Free-Float-Mode, this way you can move the chart very precise to your exact location.
Usage: Activate Focused Zoom by pressing and holding CTRL-Button, now scroll with the mouse wheel to change the zoom level.
Very useful to zoom in and out on the chart at the location of your choise.
Usage: While measuring with the Cross-Hair and still holding the right mouse button down, press the left mouse button once.
This will draw the template object with the dimensions of your measurment.
Once you manually create a new object, it will be used as new template.
Very useful for repetitive drawing jobs on the chart.
Usage: Scroll to the most recent position on the chart.
This will turn on ASK and BID-Lines and will keep the chart pushing to the most recent bar. Once scrolling away from the "front", the Bid and Ask Lines will disapear and the chart will not jump to the front anymore.
This Utility has two fractals indicators included, with the ability to set the periods of consideration individually. In case both fractal types fall onto the same bar, the color will (by default) change to Gold.
Also included is a data feed verification indicator, which shows price and time gaps in the market's data-feed.

To be able to move charts via dragging the mouse alone closes a huge usability gap, which without MQLplus Charting would be left wide open. On top of that you also now are able to zoom in and out, while the chart stays focused on where you placed the mouse cursor. Some time ago I was looking for a good tool, which identifies customizable fractals, leaving me frustrated not beeing able to find one. Thank god now there is one. In the description it says "this utility finally brings some neat features to MT5 to make charting fun again." After just testing this product for a few minutes, I can tell you that this is not exactly true. It makes charting using MT5 fun for the first time. ;-) So I will test the product a bit more detailed, but I already am pretty sure to buy the full version.
