Trading on Kraken’s trading interface, Kraken Pro, provides integrated charting services, numerous technical indicators, and a streamlined interface for entering, cancelling and replacing orders. Below is a quick guide for how to use Kraken Pro.
The order form is on the top right of the screen (you may need to wait a few moments for the screen to finish loading before it becomes available).
If the order form is not visible, unhide it by clicking the vertical bars on the right side of the screen. The trading panel, depth chart and order book panels can all be hidden or displayed this way.
Viewing recent orders, trades and positions
You can view recent orders, trades and positions in the lower right of the screen (below the trading panel). Only recent activity is shown — to look further back into your order or trade history, you may have to log in to your account on https://www.kraken.com.
Selecting currency pairs
Currency pairs are selected in the upper-left of the screen, below the Kraken logo.
Is the new trade interface safe?
Yes - it’s just as safe as trading on the old interface. Keep in mind that anyone who has access to your computer while you are logged in will be able to make trades on your account. When you are finished trading, be sure to click “Log out” in the upper right of the screen.
Does the new trade interface require that I stay logged in to kraken.com?
No — you can log in to kraken.com to launch the new interface, but once it is launched you do not need to stay logged in to kraken.com. When you are finished trading, be sure to click “Log out” in the upper right of the screen.
You can log in to Kraken Pro directly from trade.kraken.com. Click the Connect button to sign in. You will be redirected to the Kraken sign-in portal, then back to Kraken Pro.
Be careful about trading on the new and old interface at the same time.
It is possible to be logged in to the new and old trade interface at the same time. Orders or trades entered on one interface will take a short while to appear on the other interface. We recommend that you just trade on one interface at a time - preferably the new one!
