Frequently asked questions:

Keyboard shortcuts for bar replay?

Tradingview has two keyboard short cuts nominated for controling the bar replay function.

To play and pause the bar replay ‘Replay play/pause’ the shortcut keys are Shift + ↓ to step a bar replay forward ‘replay step forward’ the hotkeys are Shift + →.

keyboard shortcut to change the timeframe?

TradingView developers have recently added timeframe keyboard shorts to the platform. To change the time frame of the chart you are currently working on simple key the Number of the minutes related to the time frame you want. For example if you the 5 minute time frame key ‘5’.

If you’re wanting the Daily, Weekly or Monthly time frames a little trick I use is select ‘1’. Then type the unit of your time frame. For example ‘1D’.

How do you zoom a Tradingview chart?

The TradingView zoom shortcut is ‘Ctrl + Mouse wheel‘.

This gives you loads of control to quickly zoom in and out of charts without having to select a zoom tool and select an area.
