I'm new to using FXCM, sorry if this is a re-post, I tried doing a search.
When I'm using the charts, in the marketscope I can stack and organize charts as much as I want within that window (using those little blue arrows) I'm not sure what FXCM calls this. Its handy in that I can move the window around and all the charts move with it.
I have multiple monitors. Outside the main marketscope screen, if I have another chart, the blue arrows will show up as if to allow me to attach another chart to it, but it doesn't work. I can't seem to stack or setup a window like I can within the marketscope window, even though the arrows will show up. Is this a glitch? Am I allowed only one organizeable window?
any help would be great.
Welcome to the Forum and thank you for your post! Your question is an original one. No need to apologize for asking. I went through the exact same thing you are describing in your example. Allow me to give you some suggstions.
How can I setup multiple charts on multiple monitors?
Let me first say that you are doing nothing wrong. Those buttons that appear when you try to dock a single chart onto another single chart will not do anything for you. Those buttons appearing at all is actually a bug I just reported to our dev team. With that being said, you are only able to organize charts inside the master "Marketscope" window.
There are two ways that I organize multiple charts on multiple monitors. How I decide which method to use depends on the setup of the monitors on my trading desk.
1. This option is best if you have more than two monitors. Use multiple "single" charts on different screens. You are not able to use arrows to auto-organize the windows, so it is tedious the first time you set it up. But when you save your marketscope layout, the individual charts will save exactly how you placed them each time the layout is loaded.
2. This option is best if you have two monitors or your multiple monitors are laid out linearly (either horizontal or vertical only). You can un-maximise the Marketscope window and by grabbing the window by the corners, you can stretch the window across multiple screens. You can then organize all the tabs within the giant marketscope window exactly how you want them to appear. Since the Marketscope window can only be rectangular, this is only an option if the monitors are organized in a rectangle as well.
Hopefully one of the two solutions listed above will get you to the place you need to be with your setup. Let me know if you can create your "vision" for your setup or not. If you run into problems, reply back with exactly what your setup is and how you want the screens to be organized. I'd be more than happy to show you step by step how to get it done.
Have a great day and happy trading!
