can't find max stress

Hi all,


I can't find the maximum stress in my study for an anchor. I did the same study with the same setup except for the force applied for a size smaller anchor and everything went as expected.


This time though I'm having trouble finding where the max stress is located. (please see attached picture) I've looked all around the assembly and the closest color to red is green. (I AM color blind but I am pretty confident this has nothing to do with that).


Does anyone have an idea what may be going on or what I should try to locate the max stress in the shank?


Could this be because I have fixed all the other components of the assembly? (I'd like to think not since I did the same for a size smaller anchor and was able to find the max stress, which was right near the base of the shank along the edge)
