Analysis Tile

Overview


The Analysis Tile is a dynamic label system which takes a true/false Scripting Formula and provides a quick display on the chart itself (green when the condition is true, red for false).

In the example below, the tiles are giving results based on the following formulas:

Vol > 20MA?
VOL() > MA(VOL(), BARS=20)

13EMA Slope Up?
MA(BARS=13, STYLE=Exponential, CALC=Close) IsUp


To add the tool to your chart, select the tool from the Line Studies tool group, and left-click where on the chart you wish to place the tool. Optuma will then draw the tool using the default settings.

Actions & Properties


Actions


Add to Toolbar: Adds the selected tool to your custom toolbar.

Apply Settings to All: When multiple Analysis Tile tools have been applied to a chart, page or workbook, this action can be used to apply the settings of the one selected to other instances of the tool. This is a great time saver if an adjustment is made to the tool - such as line colour - as this allows all the other Analysis Tile tools in the chart, page or entire workbook to be updated instantly.

Copy Tool: Allows you to copy the selected tool, which can then be pasted onto a different chart window.

Move to Back: If the tool is displaying in front of other tools or indicators clicking this action will move the tool view to the background.

Move to Front: If the tool is displaying behind other tools or indicators on the chart, clicking this action will bring the tool to the forefront.

Restore Default Settings: Click this action if you have adjusted the default settings of the tool, and wish to return to the standard properties originally installed with Optuma.

Save Settings as Default: If you have adjusted any of the tool’s properties (colour, for example) you can save the adjustments as your new default setting. Each time you apply a new Analysis Tile to a chart, the tool will display using the new settings.

Delete: Deletes the tool from the chart.
