Toolbar Navigation

This quick article will guide you throughout all of the various toolbars available within your working area on TradingLite.

The aim of this Toolbar Navigation guide is to breakdown each part of the core TradingLite user-interface.


We strongly recommend having this guide open in one tab, whilst having the TradingLite platform open in another, in order to follow along. If you have not done so already, you can sign up here.

Main Toolbar

At the top, from left to right, you will find options to select:

TradingLite Logo Button

Clicking the TradingLite Logo button will provide you quick access to key information, account management links and user-interface settings.

Pair Selection

Hovering will provide you with a list of of your favourited pairs.

Clicking, will allow you the ability to search and select a pair from all those supported on TradingLite.

By pressing the star icon, to the left of the pair, you will pin that particular pair to a Favourites list. Your Favourites list will be shown when you hover over the pair selection button in future. Once added to your Favourites, you can re-order your list by dragging and dropping into your desired sequence.

Time Frame Selection

Current timeframes that are supported include:

1m, 3m, 5m, 15m, 30m, 1h, 2h, 4h, 6h, 8h, 12h, Daily.

By pressing the star icon, to the left of the timeframe, will pin that particular time-frame to the top toolbar, for quicker selection in future.

Quick Chart Type Shortcut

Main is the initial layer used to display price in a candlestick chart. In addition to traditional candles, TradingLite offers 7 additional alternative methods to display price, to suit your preference. Candles, Heiken Ashi, Line, Stepped Line, Area and Baseline are pictured below.


Footprint Cluster and Footprint Profile are also available, however they are shown and explained within the dedicated Footprint Basics and Footprint Advanced guides.

As with most elements that have a range of choices, you are able to Favourite different chart types, allowing for quick selection in future.

Note that Footprints from favourites are composite layers, meaning that they're composed of two indicators (candles & footprints).

If you only want the Footprint itself, as a separate layer, add it via Indicators > Official Indicators.

Chart Settings, Indicators, Heatmap

Chart Settings, Indicators, Heatmap (Intensity Slider & HD button) are all explained within their own dedicated pages available below:



Despite being an easily forgotten feature, the Undo / Redo buttons help you quickly revert changes. This also includes changes to pair selection and inputs from indicators.

Start by pressing the Split-View button and select your desired multiple chart layout. Ensure you select the various sync options to maintain your original layout and a theme. For more info see our dedicated Split-View learning page:
