Using hotkeys for drawing and analysis

Trade smarter with an assortment of charting hotkeys.

A list of charting hotkeys is available via the Hotkeys menu on the bottom toolbar of any chart. These keyboard shortcuts can help you navigate the charts, open menus or hide/display side panels. Additionally, every drawing tool has its own designated hotkey.

Below is a list of all available hotkeys on Cryptowatch, sorted by function.
