Trend lines

Why when I put in trend lines, in a higher time frame, do they not show up in the lower time frames?  They are completely removed.

It is an issue with Alveo.


you could try putting them on lower and going to a higher then if necessary just adjust them or use two screens side by side.


These kinds of issues make it really hard to trade properly, and imho are a serious hindrance when you fight with the charting platform or skip going back in history or adding lines 'cause of these issues or long-winded hacks need to do basic charting things.

I never noticed this one, but in general find Alveo very "clunky", zooming and scrolling in particular.

I reckon go to any forex broker, open a free demo account, use MT4 for your analysis, and Alveo for order entry only. This is what I do (except I have live accounts).

Its one-click trade feature once activated (thanks Rookie! :) is great, and that's about it (unless you want custom chart types which MT4 does not support , you need an "indicator" for Henki Ashi etc, even MT5 I think does not).

Of course I started by myself on MT4, so maybe its only because I am so used to MT4 I dislike Alveo, but then I have no issues with Ninjatrader and its different. The first broker I tried also rolled their own platform and I quickly did this, opened an MT4 demo elsewhere (then left the broker, as when you are using your own money never stay with a broker that does not give great tools)
