Timeline charts allow setting up customized charts, fitting specific data products, and potentially their own rate and time frame scales.
The timeline chart represents a chart within a time machine, which may have independent rate and time frame scales, as well as particular layers.

In other words, a timeline chart—often referred simply as chart—is a set of information to be displayed over a timeline. The information may include candles—the main and foremost resource—as well as any other indicator, study or—in general—data products that may be available.

You may add as many charts as you wish. Charts within the same time machine are synchronized in the y-axis, that is, in the datetime dimension. Charts in different time machines are independent of each other concerning the datetime. In either case, you may also add rate scales and time frame scales at the timeline charts level.

The information that each timeline chart makes available on the screen is given by the layers set up in the corresponding layers manager.

Adding a Timeline Chart Node

To add a timeline chart, select Add Timeline Chart on the preferred time machine node menu.

Layers in a timeline chart are references to data products offered by bots in different data mines and trading mines. The datasets compilled in data products are read by plotters, which render a graphic interpretation of the data on the charting space.

These data products may also be consumed by strategies, using a specific syntax to formulate situations, conditions, and formulas.

Layers Manager

The layer manager determines which layers will be visible on the corresponding timeline chart.

In other words, you use the layers manager node to configure which data products you wish to be made available for visualization purposes on the charts, in particular, on a specific timeline chart to which the layers manager node is attached to.

Adding a Layers Manager Node

To add a layers manager, select Add Layers Manager on the preferred timeline chart node menu.

Layer

A layer represents a reference to a data product in the data storage node of the network hierarchy. Conceptually, it means that a certain data product, which exists in a certain location on the network, holds the data to be rendered on the charts.

To set up a layer, you need to establish a reference with the data product of your choice.

Controlling the Layer from the Charts

To turn layers on and off, simply click on the layer in the corresponding products panel.

To turn on and off a layer panel, click the panel button on the bottom-left corner of the layer.

Adding a Layer Node

To add a layer, select Add Layer on the layer manager node menu.

Configuring the Layer

Select Configure Layer on the menu to access the configuration.

{
    "status":"on", 
    "showPanels":true
}
  • status may be on or off and refers to the layer being visible or not on the charts.

  • showPanels may be true or false; true shows the plotter panel that may be associated with the data product as per the plotter module definitions; false makes panels invisible.
