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?

    • I think those swings were tradeable with a reduced position size on the Nikkei which tends to respect weekly pivots during European and American trading hours.
    • @dmedin, I don't know the answer but there may be others on the IG Community that are more knowledgable than me or even use EWT both successfully and are hugely profitable applying it. They may be aware of certain assets where the probabilities of using EWT are in their favour due to confirmed historical evidence. There may well be evidence that certain assets adhere to EWT more than others on a historical basis. Of course that does not guarantee that the assets will do so in the future but it just increases the odds and the likelihood of it occurring again.  Just because I don't have the knowledge or evidence does not mean such assets do not exist where the application of EWT would be greatly increase your chances of successful and profitable trades. I personally do not use or apply EWT to my trading and it has not hindered me. I would be interested in knowing which assets adhere to EWT more than others and what the percentages are. For example are there any assets which adhere to EWT historically over 70%? Let us put Natural Gas to one side for the moment as I personally think due to the extreme volatility you would have to be a supreme EWT technician to be able to consistently make profitable trades on Natural Gas using EWT. If you put NG to one side then are there any other assets which say adhere to EWT historically from say 50% - 70% of the time? I do not know the answer but if anyone does know then it would be very interesting and helpful to the IG Community, especially for those who are genuinely interested in EWT and applying it to their trading.  Also for those assets which say do adhere to EWT over 50% of the time how does a trader know that it will so on the next trend, next move up or down, etc? How does one establish apart from a failed trade after the event on whether the asset is going to adhere to EWT?
    • S&P has tested that trend line and is now blasting into outer space.  🥳
