Alternative Chart zoom view
This version also introduces the ability to switch the chart zoom display to a fixed width candle, which provides the possibility to keep the candle size fixed while still displaying more candles within the same area of the chart. In addition, a candle border may be enabled for better visibility.
These options can be enabled from the settings, by going int the “Chart” menu and enabling the options.
Alternative Zooming behavior
Another addition, is the ability to quickly zoom using the left mouse button. The default setting allows you to do so by pressing the CTRL key and dragging the display. You may also switch the default behavior to enabling this option when clicking the left mouse button and setting the click-to-pan option as the secondary option (using the CTRL key).
Alternating the zoom mode on the mouse can be enabled from the settings.
% Chg Result filtering
This version of StocksToTrade also implemented the ability to filter down results by percent change. This was added to add better flexibility of choice when looking for stocks within a certain percent % range on existing scan results.
Reset to factory settings option
Finally, StocksToTrade v2.1.4216 introduces the ability to quickly reset the application to factory settings. This enables users to quick clear their data files and start fresh. When resetting, a backup of all existing data files is made for your convenience.
