The Crosshairs pointer is a charting tool that allows you to locate exact points on a chart. For example, you can find the precise point on a line chart or a Point & Figure chart and view price data that corresponds to that point. Information displayed in the DataTip relates to the intersection of the horizontal and vertical lines that make up the Crosshairs pointer. The Crosshairs pointer does not allow you to select or move objects in a chart, but you can still select menu options and toolbar buttons. To format an object using the Crosshairs pointer, you must place your pointer on the object you want to select and use the shortcut menu.
To have a vertical line remain on your chart at the last pointer location on charts, enable one of the Drawing >Pointer Tracking Menu bar sequence settings. For more information, see Pointer Tracking Settings.
