Wave Count Settings

Show AutoCount Start

When this feature is enabled, you’ll see a blue circle on your chart before you run AutoCounts. This blue circle shows you where your count will start.

Alts For Subwave Counts

Enable this to see wave count alternatives in the Alternate Wave Counts gadget when counting subwaves of a particular larger timeframe wave. If this option is enabled, you will be able to choose between various alternate wave counts for the current chart in the Alternate Wave Counts gadget, just as you can with full/complete wave counts.

HINT: If you don’t find the subwave counts you’re looking for, try to delete all waves forward from the wave in question and count subwaves forward again.

Waves On All Timeframes

When this feature is enabled, wave patterns or counts that are added to a chart at a particular timeframe will also be displayed on all other timeframes. This is extremely useful for switching a chart between timeframes/resolutions, while always keeping consistency with the larger wave count context in focus.

When this feature is disabled, waves will only be displayed on a chart when the chart is on the timeframe on which the waves were first added.

Scale Font By Wave Degree

By default, all wave labels are displayed on charts in the same size font for clarity, but this can also lead to overly-cluttered charts. Enabling “Scale font by wave degree” will display waves at lower degrees in a smaller font, which can make wave counts much easier to read.




Use My Default Drawings

If you have saved default settings for any of the tools included in the Smart Tools for your subscription plan, such as the Fibonacci-related or Pitchfork drawing tools, enable this setting to display your default drawings as Smart Tools, rather than the system defaults. This can be useful if, for example, you prefer to view different Fibonacci levels than the system defaults, or if you prefer to customize the colors and appearance of those tools.


Learn more about how to customize your drawings.


In the example below, when “Use My Default Drawings” is enabled, the Smart Fibonacci retracement displays the 0% level in pink, removes some levels, adds the 161.8 level and colors it green (These are the settings we chose as an example; feel free to choose your own). These are just some examples of how you can customize Smart Tools that allow drawing defaults.
