Note: This article is for a retired module in Optuma and is no longer officially supported. If you have the Gann tools, or Gann Edition of Optuma and would like access to this module you can submit a request to support@optuma.com

For traders who still like to hand chart, or just want to see the bigger picture of the market, the Optuma Wall Chart feature takes the time-intensive element out of the process.

Numbered boxes representing each page are overlayed onto the chart. These sections indicate page sizing and the number of pages that will be printed if the current settings are used. Other boxes that do not have numbers will indicate non-selected pages. You can left click on a non-selected box to select it, and vice versa.

To enable the Wall Chart mode, open a chart then left-click in a blank area of the chart.

Next, from the Control Panel under Actions select Wall Chart Mode. You can also access the Actions menu by right-clicking on the chart background and selecting the running man icon.
