Are you wondering how to draw a short horizontal line in MT4? Do your trendlines stretch indefinitely and you can’t use them?
In this short tutorial, we will explain step by step how to draw a short horizontal line in your chart.
To draw a short horizontal line, you will need to use the “draw trendline” button instead of the “draw the horizontal line” button. Insert the new trendline in the graph near the desired point.
Double click on the trendline and then with the right button, select “Trendline Properties”.
In the “parameters” table, you have to enter the same value in both cells and deselect “Ray”.
Below we show you with pictures on how to draw a short horizontal line.

In this EurUsd chart, you have inserted a horizontal line to identify a double top at level 1.1341.
Would you like to insert a short horizontal trend line like this?
Select “Draw TrendLine” instead of “draw Horizontal Line”
Select this function and draw a trendline near the desired point. It doesn’t matter if you’re precise because we will change the value later
Double click on the trendline just drawn. You should see two squares of the same color appear
Right-click on the trendline and choose “Trendline Properties”.
Final step. At this point, you will have to change the values of the “parameters” tab
In the two “values” you will have to enter the same value, in our case 1.1341.
You will finally need to deselect “ray” and you’re done.
