    the trend line degrees are always changing. if i make a 45 degree trend line and save the workbook and then open it again, the degree changes.

    below are two files with the same trend line showing different degrees.

    Hi Ricky,

    When using geometry and angles you need to lock the Time/Price Ratio in the bottom-right corner to keep the angles constant.

    Capture

    Note that if you use the Geometric Line tool (instead of the Trend Line) you will be prompted to lock the ratio when the tool is applied.

    For more information and videos on using the Time/Price Ratio to scale charts see here: https://help.optuma.com/kb/faq.php?id=591

    Dont get it. The trend line is different every time i angle it to 45 degrees. So cant really tell which 45 degrees is the right one. Can you guide me on how a 45 degree trend line is drawn?

    Hi,

    Did you watch the videos on the article Darren posted earlier?

    https://help.optuma.com/kb/faq.php?id=591

    These will show you step by step how to lock the Time Price Ratio so the angles do not change when the zoom levels are adjusted.  It also shows how to set the 1×1 Gann Fan line to a true 45 degree angle.

    If you still aren’t sure after reviewing all the material on the article above, please provide more information about which step specifically is causing problems.
