Data Window

Data Window

This window is intended for displaying of price information (OHLC), date and time of the bar, and the indicators (including custom ones) used. "Data Window" is an information window and it does not allow to perform any actions. The desired information about a certain bar and the imposed indicators can be obtained here promptly. To do so, it is sufficient to place the cursor over the necessary bar.
