Hi, i've been trying to find a good indicator for labelling days on the charts. Out of the many i used, i never found one that actually works properly. Does anyone have one that would label the days on the top of the chart like so?
Yes it is possible, but it takes some coding.
Normally, text drawn on the chart can either be fixed relative to pixels on the screen (x and y) or relative to the chart (time and price).
What you want is text fixed relative the screen on the y axis, but fixed relative to time on the x axis.
Coding something from scratch for you - I'm afraid not. But I'll refer you to Alain's standard response which may help:

By the way (off topic), how does one pocket that message so "cleanly"?
When I do it, it always inserts the "thread name", "poster's name" and "date" of the post. Obviously, I can just edit the HTML and remove that extra data.
But just in case there is an easier/quicker method, how did you do it?
Good question! It was harder than I thought ;-)
Find the post, click to pocket (bottom right, next to complain and reply)
Then in your reply click the Insert from Pocket icon:
The problem I had is that it didn't copy the right content over. So I had to go back and cut'n'paste the correct content into the pocket frame.
I'll leave the full details there in case anyone else struggles.
I didn't have to edit in HTML view. Just a straight cut'n'paste into the pocket frame.
