Watchlists

The Watchlists feature is designed to allow users combining symbols into the groups to follow the dynamics and trade the listed symbols only. cTrader allows creating the unlimited number of the Watchlists, with the unlimited number of Symbols in them.

The Watchlists tab is the default cTrader mobile tab from where you can navigate to all trading operations. When tapping on a symbol, the symbol overview is opened. Tapping the Sell or Buy buttons opens the Create New Order menu with the respective direction.

The default Watchlist when you start the application is Popular Markets, which includes the basic currency pairs, commodity symbols, and stocks. This list is not editable, but one can copy it and make his own list on its basis, adding and removing symbols of his choice.
