Raman Support & Resistance Bands
The Raman Support & Resistance Bands tool was developed by Ed Raman and is used to assist with determining support and resistance levels.
To add the tool to your chart, select the tool from the Levels tool group, and left-click on the bar on the chart you wish to calculate the tool from. 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 Raman Support & Resistance Bands 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 Raman Support & Resistance Bands 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 Raman Support & Resistance Bands to a chart, the tool will display using the new settings.
Delete: Deletes the tool from the chart.
Tool Name: Allows you to adjust the name of the tool, as it’s displayed in the Structure Panel.
Lock to Bar Position: When enabled, as new bars are added to the chart each day, the tool will automatically move/recalculate. For example, if you apply the tool to the last bar on your chart and lock it to that position, when the next days’ data is downloaded the tool will automatically move to the new bars position, with the tool recalculating based off of the new price.
