QuantShare allows you to drag and drop indicators from a chart or formulas control into another chart's pane.


- Select a chart then right click on an indicator
- Keep the mouse button pressed then move it to another chart's pane
- Release the mouse button to complete the drag & drop process and add the selected indicator in the new chart

The indicator will be deleted from the first chart. You can keep it there (create a copy of the dragged indicator) by using the CONTROL key (keep pressing on CONTROL when performing the drag & drop operation).

After a trading indicator is added to a chart, the settings control automatically appears.

Note also that a new formula is created (with the same name as the original formula) in the new chart. If you drag & drop an indicator twice into the same pane then only one indicator is created.

Here is how to drag & drop a formula/indicator into a chart using the formulas control:
- Select "View" then "Formulas" to open the formulas control
- Click on a formula then drag & drop it into a chart's pane (left mouse button)

You can also drag & drop an indicator to the bookmark panel (What is the Bookmark Panel?). The indicator formula will be saved in the bookmark panel. After that, you can drag & drop that formula into a new chart' pane.

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.
