Forex Plot Scale

TLDR; Forex Plots do not scale y-axis to match small price values. How best to handle this? 

In examples I've seen, when one plots an indicator on an equity like SPY, it looks great as the y-axis handles larger price values well.

But with Forex, since we're in the $1 - $2 range, the y-axis does not scale down to fit the much smaller data values. I haven't found any documentation that shows how to deal with this. What I am currently doing is scaling the values myself (see BB and BB2 plots in attached algorithm):

self.Plot("BB2", "MiddleBand1", self.bb.MiddleBand.Current.Value * 100000)

Is this the correct course of action?
