Draw vertical/horizontal line

In MetaTrader5 (MT5), you can display a vertical line parallel to the price axis or a horizontal line parallel to the time axis. Use the vertical line to emphasize the time, and use the horizontal line to emphasize the price. Place multiple vertical lines to see the change in price over a specific period. The horizontal line can be used as a resistance line or a support line.

Step 1
