Chart keyboard shortcuts

Recommended Posts

Hi all


I’m happy to announce that we’ve added keyboard shortcuts to our new platform charts:


  • E to open an Edit dialog box on a selected drawing (select an object and press E on the keyboard)
  • D to duplicate a selected drawing
  • P and O to show/hide positions (P) and working orders (O)
  • Del/Backspace to delete a selected drawing (move your cursor over the object and select Delete or Backspace on the keyboard)
  • Spacebar to go to latest candle/reset zoom level


You’ll see some of these shortcuts on menu items:

What other shortcuts would you like to see? Let me know below because we hope to add more of these soon!

I would like to see the use of

  • up/down arrow keys to change timeframe
  • -/+ keys to zoom in & out
  • left/right arrow keys to scroll chart left & right
  • function/number keys for set layouts, indicators & analysis (e.g. Fib,Gann,Pivots)


It would be even better if these options were customised by the user to any key they perfer.


Many thanks

Thanks for your suggestion, I will forward it onto the developers to consider including the ability to map your own shortcut buttons.

Keyboard shortcuts to change the timeframe on the existing chart.  Number keys (eg 1-7) for 1m/5m/hourly/4hourly/daily/weekly/monthly?

    • do you trade on CFD's?
    • Hey @dmedin. That news piece is something I long suspected. If anyone can move the market with just one tweet then why shouldn't the cronies profit from it. I'm just surprised this has taken so long to get to the "news".
    • Ok, so I took this approach to the next level. Rather than telling the algorithm enter long at 25% and enter short at 75% levels, I decided to let the algorithm decide itself at what levels its best to enter short or long. This simplifies the strategy and boosts its gains dramatically. Top level stats over 100,000 5min candles: Gain: +1,307% % of winning trades: 60% Starting with a £2000 account, after 1 year and 1 quarter that account would have grown to almost £30k (£28k). The equity curve looks also a lot more stable, too. I resolved the issue with the lot size, this is now a formula. Unfortunately we still have 3 negative months, but overall the max runup is a lot higher than the max drawdown. Overall time in market is only 20%, so there should be the opportunity to run multiple of this strategy on different assets simultaneously to further boost the return. If let's say 3 of these programs could run simultaneously and deliver similar results you could grow £2000 to £100k within about 18 months. Still not as good as the results of the few world-class top traders like Ross Cameron from Warrior Trading, etc but a start nonetheless. The variables which the program optimised are the following: Take Profit for Long Positions: 84 points Take Profit for Short Positions: 70 Points Entry LvL for Long Positions: 23 Points below the low of previous day Entry LvL for Short Positions: 7 Points below the high of previous day Interestingly, it turned out the strategy works best without a set stop-loss, but just to close out any open positions at 21.00 o'clock at night, if not already closed by the take profit rule. I'm gonna simulate this on NASDAQ next. Obviously will need to find out the 4 variables again, as these will be subject to the Index where this is traded.   What do you guys think? Worth a shot this strategy?
