Hello, in the working source code below, on lines 74 we see:

 

   ObjectCreate("H4_SMA", OBJ_LABEL, 0, Time[1], H4_SMA);
   ObjectSetText("H4_SMA","H4 SMA",14,"Tahoma",Gold);

 

I would like to modify these lines such that the label is right-justified and all the way to the right on the chart at Time[1] or so. Right now, for some reason, the label appears left of center in the chart. Complete source code follows:
