The following tip is of great value for anyone using the MT4 platform for technical analysis purposes. When having many objects on a chart, like indicators, trendlines, numbers, letters, texts, and so on, it comes in handy to select objects with a single mouse click.
The issue here is that the default setting requires two mouse clicks to select an object (e.g., a trendline). Well, not that is something wrong with that, but the professional retail traders spend a lot of time in front of the screens, and each click spared saves time and effort.
Luckily, the MT4 platform gives the possibility to select the objects with a single mouse click, which is an improvement from the original settings. Here’s how:
- follow the Tools/Options/Objects path
- find the “Select object by single mouse click” option
- make sure you check that box just like below
From this moment on, traders spare one click for every object selection. It may seem like nothing, but over the long-term, it will save you a lot of time, efforts and stress!
