Below, we’ve compiled a few tips and tricks for the Kraken Pro and Cryptowatch platforms:
Tired of having to manually navigate/pan through charts to the most current candle?
Use the Go to now hotkey [Space] and you'll automatically jump to the most current candle.
Is there a way to reset both the x and y-axis zooming and start from scratch?
Use the Reset Zoom hotkey  and you'll automatically reset your chart's zoom (both x and y-axis).
Ever annoyed by all the different darkened numbers when viewing the order book and recent trading history?
Though enabled by default, this can be disabled by navigating to the Settings menu, specifically the Emphasis section. Emphasis options include:
- Hide leading zeros
- Hide redundant digits
Why are certain rows in the order book highlighted?
The system automatically highlights large orders found on the order book. Amounts will vary depending on the market you're viewing.
When viewing the volume indicator, ever wonder what the second values mean?
The first value is the volume for the selected candle, while the second value is the MA (moving average). By default, this is toggled on with a value of 15. This can be adjusted in the Volume section of the Analysis Tools drop-down menu. The displayed currency (base vs. quote) can also be adjusted under the same menu.
In other words, the selected candle has:
- 1st value: 7916 BTC (Volume)
- 2nd value: 2450 BTC (MA)
Is it possible to set an alert if an asset goes up or down a specific %?
To set a percentage change alert, you'll need to first change the chart Y Axis setting from Linear to Percentage via the Chart Style drop-down menu. Once this setting is adjusted, hover over the Y Axis and left-click on the specific percentage change for which you'd like to set the alert.
What is that timer at the bottom of the chart?
Appearing below the most recent candle is the candle countdown timer. It essentially tells you specifically when the candle will close. As you adjust the time frame, the candle countdown timer will adjust accordingly.
Is there an easier way to cancel all of my open orders?
Rather than cancelling each of their orders individually, users also have the ability to cancel all of their orders with a single click of the mouse. This button is found in the trading panel settings menu (gear icon), located on the bottom right hand of the interface. Under the Bulk Operations section, the total number of open orders (for that specific market) will appear, as well as a Cancel All button. By clicking the Cancel All button, all open orders for that market will be cancelled.
I have hundreds of trades/orders on my chart and it's getting messy. Is there any way to hide them?
By default, all of a user’s past trades and open orders appear on the chart. For those interested in hiding either or both, they can do so by navigating to the settings menu (gear icon), located on the top right hand of the interface when viewing an individual chart. Under the My Activity section, they'll want to uncheck which they'd like to hide specifically.
How do I delete drawings on my charts?
There are currently three ways in which you're able to delete chart drawings:
- Erase the most recent drawing: Right-click/control-click anywhere on the interface.
- Erase a specific drawing: With the Line tool selected, hover over a specific drawing and right-click/control-click.
- Erase all chart drawings: Click the Clear drawing button, found under the Drawing Settings menu.
