Tutorial 85 | Drawing and keeping text on the right of a chart

Tutorial 85 is a simple beginner level tutorial that demonstrates how to create text objects that appear to the right of the chart and maintain that position as price action develops. It also shows how to extend the plots to the right.

The following image shows three horizontal lines plotted on the chart with a text object showing the price level for the lowest of the lines.

Even though this tutorial is simple, drawing objects can be tricky in TradeStation. For example, if you try and reference a non existent drawing object then all drawing objects will disappear from the chart, while the rest of the program will run normally.

In the following video I create a simple version of the program. Gold Pass members can copy and paste this program below.
