Open Charts

cTrader сharts represent graphically the price movements of a symbol over time.

The chart is the most basic tool for trading technical analysis.

cTrader has a comprehensive chart customization system that allows taking the most out of them.

The QuickTrade mode and in-chart trading tools allow opening all types of orders, closing the positions, setting up protections, and Price Alerts directly in the charts.

In cTrader, you can simultaneously have as many charts on the screen as you need, add new charts, move them around the Charts area, and change the Chart Modes to change the layout of the charts on the screen.

Use the shortcuts for navigation:

  • Ctrl+A - enable or disable the Ask price line.
  • Ctrl+B - enable or disable the Bid price line.
  • Ctrl+G - enable or disable the chart background grid.
  • - scroll 2 trend bars left.
  • - scroll 2 trend bars right.
  • - previous timeframe.
  • - next timeframe.
  • Ctrl + scroll - zoom in or out.

Drag the chart up and down, left and right to view the desired area on the chart.
