Customizing Toolbars : If there is any tool that is not placed on the list, you can use this option to add it to the list, just like the above example where Fibonacci Expansion was not listed and now it has been added. If you do not know where an item is located and on which tool bar, right click on the customize button on the left side of any of the four toolbars, and view a list of all the names of all items that can be added, these will be on the left window on this customize window.


Also you can remove some tools, the ones you do not use, so as to save on the space also, for example if you trade only with 15 minute, 1 Hour and 4 hour charts, you can hide all the other time frames on the Periodicity bar and remaining with only these 3 time frames.
