How can we help?

Using the chart tools

Our chart tools make it easy for you to analyse a particular asset's performance.

You can customise the charts and use different tools to help you improve your trading. 

There are tools available in the top toolbar, top-right toolbar and in the left toolbar.

How to find the charts

To view charts, go to Assets and select the asset for which you want to see the chart.

You can also go to Wallets and select an asset you hold for an overview of its performance. From here, select Asset info to view the more detailed charts for that asset.


Top toolbar

In the top toolbar, there are 5 tools:


  • Time interval

    The candle time frame is the time frame that each candle on the chart represents.

    For example, if set to 5 minutes, each candle will show the movement and highs and lows over 5 minutes.

  • Candle style

    Select a style of the chart to show the asset history.

  • Indicators

    You can select any of the indicators typically used on a trading chart.

    Paired with the right risk management tools, it could help you gain more insight into price trends.

    Examples of some indicators:

    • Volume: refers to the amount of crypto exchanged over a specific period.
    • Bollinger Bands
    • Correlation Co-efficient
    • Historical Volatility
    • Relative Strength Index (RSI)
    • Money Flow Index (MFI)
  • Undo and redo

    Undo lets you reverse the change you have just made.

    Redo allows you to make the change again.

  • Ask and bid

    Each asset listed on the platform will always have an ask and a bid price.

    Select Show Ask or Show Bid to switch between the different price histories for the asset.

Top-right toolbar

In the top-right toolbar, there are 3 tools:

  • setting.svg Settings

    In Settings, you can change the following:

    • the colours of the candles on your chart
    • change the last value line
    • choose where the price scale is displayed.

    In the Background tab, you can further customise the chart area.

  • fullscreen.svg Full-screen mode

    Select the full-screen icon to make the chart fit the whole screen. Press the same icon or press Escape to return.

  • camera.svg Screenshot

    Select the screenshot icon to take a screenshot of what you're currently viewing on the chart.

Left toolbar

In the left toolbar, there are 24 tools:

  • Trend lines and arrow tools

    Use the trend line to connect two points on the chart. Once added, it can be clicked and modified to your requirements.

    To change the trend line's colour, style, or thickness, select the options from the trend line toolbar.

  • Horizontal and vertical lines

    Use this tool to place a continuous line across the span of the chart. You can click and move these lines as you like.

    Like the Trend Line tool, you'll notice a toolbar opens, allowing you to change the line's colour and style.

  • Ray tool and horizontal ray

    A horizontal ray adds a continuous line. It is different to the horizontal line tool as it only extends to the right of the chart.

    The Ray tool (orange line) is like the trend line and is used to draw a continuous line across the chart.

  • Arrow

    You can add arrows to all chart areas, including indicator windows.

  • Notes

    Go to Style to add notes on your line tools.

  • Visible timeframes

    Choose where you want to see the lines of your drawing from the Visibility tab.

  • Text, Brush and Drawing Tools

    Use these tools to customise your charts further.

    They allow you to visualise your adopted trading strategies and their progression.

  • Pitchfork tool

    Helpful for drawing channels and fixed support resistance zones of interest to you.

    You can change the style and colours of the pitchfork using the toolbar.

  • Fibonacci retracement levels

    Connect any two points that you view as relevant. Typically a high point and a low point. The horizontal levels are considered Support and Resistance levels.

    The most commonly used ratios include:

    • 23.6
    • 38.2%
    • 50%
    • 61.8%
    • 78.6%

    These levels should not be relied on exclusively but can be helpful in your trading strategy.

    Go to Settings in the Fibonacci toolbar to:

    • set your retracement levels
    • set the colour for each retracement level and background
    • select a single colour for all levels.

    You can also select other helpful visual tools such as extended lines, levels, and prices to appear on the chart.

    Go to Visibility to show and hide the Fibonacci Retracement for specific timeframes.

  • Pattern Tools

    Use the pattern tools to visualise pattern and price action strategies—for example, Elliot Waves and Head and Shoulder.

  • Elliot impulse wave

    Impulse wave theory consists of five sub-waves that make net movement in the same direction as the trend.

    To start drawing this line:

    1. Select the drawing tool
    2. Select the first impulse of significance.
    3. Select the remainder impulses to create the visual representation of an Elliot Wave.
  • Head and shoulders tool

    Use the head and shoulders tool to apply the price action pattern to your charts. Start from the left shoulder. Move to the head, then on to the right shoulder. Another reference point is the Neckline.

  • Position and range tools

    Useful when building an entry and exit strategy for your market positions.

  • Long position tool

    Used to help calculate and visualise the potential up-side and down-side of your trades.

    There are three inputs used for this tool:

    • entry price
    • target price
    • stop price

    The target and stop bars show price movement and overall asset movement as a percentage gain or loss.

    Go to Settings in the toolbar to change the style and visibility of the position tool.

  • Risk/reward ratio

    The risk-to-reward ratio is a powerful way to evaluate your trade and is fundamental when assessing your overall performance.

    Go to Settings to edit:

    • position size
    • quantity
    • account balance
    • risk
  • Date and price range

    They measure points of interest on the chart in their respective date ranges.

  • Symbol

    Go to Settings to change the size, colour, and visibility.

  • Ruler

    Use the ruler to measure the distance between two points of price and time on the chart.

  • Zoom

    Use zoom to analyse a particular area of interest, then return to your original view.

  • Magnet

    The magnet makes your cursor automatically snap to the candle's open, high, low, and close when you move your mouse close enough.

    Use this tool for an easy way to draw exact high and low points on candles.

  • Stay in drawing mode

    Turn this on to keep drawing without choosing the object tool again.

  • Lock drawings

    Stop any drawings from being edited or moved from their current positions.

  • Hide/show drawings

    Temporarily hide all drawings from the current chart.

  • Remove

    Use to delete drawings, indicators or all items on the chart.
