Are you considering to add custom drawing tools ?

I haven't seen this feature on any trading or analysis platform at the user level. For example i would like to edit code and add a drawing tool named Elliot Wave having its own button on the tool bar that once clicked allows me to select a starting and ending point on the chart the same as i draw a trendline. The custom Drawing Tool will also have it's own context menu tabs and properties. Finally, the cutom Drawing Tools will also be treated as any other object for sharing purposes.

Yes, we already started implementing this new plug-in. It should be ready in one month.
It allows you to select a number of points, create a custom code, specify your own settings, which will be shown in a context menu like the current drawing tools. You will also be able to share these custom drawing tools.

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
