Whenever you open a chart, you do not have to load individual indicators and set chart specifications. You can just load a pre-saved template. When a template is loaded into a chart, the stored settings will be attached to the new chart just as they were saved.
A template is a set of chart window settings that can be saved and opened later for quick application to other charts. Some of the parameters that can be saved in a template are chart type, chart color, the attached expert advisor and its parameters, custom or default indicators with their settings, chart scale, and period separators.

A crosshair is a valuable tool that is used to determine the date, time, as well as the price level of the selected section in a chart. It can also be used to determine the number of pips between two points.

No one who's followed my advice about how to do things in their FX trading platform has been killed, yet. It's a perfect record and I'm very proud of it.
