Charts are an essential tool in spread betting and trading for looking at price action, analysing trends and formulating your trading strategy.

While basic charts are useful, traders can also make use of a wealth of technical indicators and oscillators – sometimes called studies – that can help illuminate patterns and trends.

Using these studies is simple in principle. In TraderPro, simply open the basic chart for your desired market and then select ‘Studies’ from the top of the window.

From the list of technical analysis indicators and oscillators that appears, select the one you wish to use, set the parameters and your chart is created.

Each study provides a fresh view of the market and its price action.


You can also add drawings, such as lines of support and resistance, or Fibonacci lines.



Adding studies to your chart is simple - simply select the indicator or oscillator you want and set the required parameters. You can add multiple studies to the same chart to provide maximum insight.

The example below shows how to add a Simple Moving Average (SMA) to your chart.


You can also change the colours to make it easy to read the charts. The example below displays a 200-day simple moving average study with a 50-day simple moving average line.
