Going to the next level with chart trading


Traders love charts, and they love to trade. Did you know you can combine those two passions with TradeStation’s Chart Trading functionality?

This feature lets customers place and adjust orders directly on the chart. That’s great for pinning entries and exits to key levels you might be watching.

Start off with any chart in TradeStation. If you don’t have one open, click on Apps -> Chart Analysis. Then look for the chart trading icon along the top. (See picture below.) A control panel will appear on the right side the window.

You can control the number of shares, or contracts, in the dashboard on the right. It’s also possible to trade directly from the dashboard and to place advanced orders like OCOs.
