The ToolBar is an useful addition to the ToolKit that will save time and effort to the trader. It permits to quickly change settings without having to reconfigure the chart. It also saves resources in the computer as there is no need to have other charts loaded for the same data to quickly inspect parts. It can also help you remove clutter and focus in specific part of the chart at one given time. Therefore increasing trader’s productivity and speed analyzing the market.
