Keyboard shortcuts! Analyze, create, and study charts faster

TVC:DXY   U.S. Dollar Currency Index
Keyboard shortcuts can save you time and make your charting faster, easier, and more dynamic. Rather than clicking each tool separately, you can use shortcuts to speed up the process. On the chart, we've highlighted several popular combinations including:

Alt + T = Trendline
Alt + F = Fib retracement
Alt + H = Horizontal line
Alt + V = Vertical line
Alt + C = Crossline
Alt + A = Add alert
Alt + S = Screenshot chart
Alt + I = Invert chart
Alt + P = Percent chart
Alt + L = Log chart

If you're on a mac, press option ⌥ instead of Alt:

⌥ + T = Trendline
⌥ + F = Fib retracement
⌥ + H = Horizontal line
⌥ + V = Vertical line
⌥ + C = Crossline
⌥ + A = Add alert
⌥ + S = Screenshot chart
⌥ + I = Invert chart
⌥ + P = Percent chart
⌥ + L = Log chart

For a complete guide of the shortcuts available to you, visit our helpful guide here. For example, press the space bar to go through each chart on your watchlist. Or remove objects with the mouse wheel by hovering your cursor over a drawing or indicator and then clicking on the mouse wheel. To open the indicators menu, just press "/" on your keyboard and to change the chart interval, just type any number directly into the keyboard.

We hope you enjoy these keyboard shortcuts and if you think we should create a shortcut that will help your trading or investing, please write it in the comments below. We just may build it for you! We hope you're having a great weekend and thanks for being a member of TradingView.

Please add a hotkey for "Show Favorite Drawing Tools Toolbar". I've been suggesting this for weeks to no avail.

Ideally, it would be nice to be able to create and customize hotkeys and shortcuts.

Outside of that, one tool I would like is a mouse or keyboard short cut to the magnifying tool so that I can quickly click highlight a section of a chart and have that section fill my window.

Also, we definitely need more actual trading hotkeys - look at what day traders can do with platforms like DAS trader - quick keys to 1/2 or 1/4 your position for instance. There should also be some sort of panic hotkey to immediately close out your position and/or cancel all orders.

There must be a feature to create and customize hotkeys and shortcuts. Rather than memorizing the TV one.
