Single In/Scale Out Levels
The Single In/Scale Out Levels is a proprietary tool, based on the work of Ross Beck, FCSI from Geometric Trading. By selecting an Entry point and a Stop Loss point, lines are plotted for 2 profit targets and an adjusted stop loss.
To add the tool to your chart, select the tool from the Beck tool group, and then left-click on the chart at the desired level to add the Entry line. Next, left-click again to add the line for the Protective stop. Optuma will then draw the tool on the chart using the default settings.

Apply Settings to All: When multiple Single In/Scale Out Levels 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 Single In/Scale Out Levels tools in the chart, page or entire workbook to be updated instantly.
