Included in Add On


The Beck’s Emblem tool is available in the Beck Tool Group. By selecting the high and low of an impulsive phase, a circle, square and three triangles are generated to identify support and resistance levels in price and time.

When you apply the Beck’s Emblem tool to a chart, you will be prompted to enable the Geo Ratio lock. The Geo Ratio lock ensures the ratio of time and price which is in effect when you apply the tool is locked in, to ensure the angle of the lines of the Beck Emblem remain constant, even after zoom levels of the chart are adjusted.


To add the tool to your chart, select the tool from the Beck tool group, and left-click on the first bar you want to calculate the tool from. Next, left-click on the bar where you want to calculate the tool to. Optuma will then draw the tool using the default settings.

Actions & Properties



Add to Toolbar: Adds the selected tool to your custom toolbar.

Apply Settings to All: When multiple Beck’s Emblem tools have been applied to a chart, page or workbook, this action can be used to apply the settings of the one selected to other instances of the tool. This is a great time saver if an adjustment is made to the tool - such as line colour - as this allows all the other Beck’s Emblem tools in the chart, page or entire workbook to be updated instantly.

Copy Tool: Allows you to copy the selected tool, which can then be pasted onto a different chart window.

Move to Back: If the tool is displaying in front of other tools or indicators clicking this action will move the tool view to the background.

Move to Front: If the tool is displaying behind other tools or indicators on the chart, clicking this action will bring the tool to the forefront.

Restore Default Settings: Click this action if you have adjusted the default settings of the tool, and wish to return to the standard properties originally installed with Optuma.

Save Settings as Default: If you have adjusted any of the tool’s properties (colour, for example) you can save the adjustments as your new default setting. Each time you apply a new Beck’s Emblem to a chart, the tool will display using the new settings.
