How do I add and remove symbols in the Market Watch window?

Oct 19, 2023

The Market Watch window in your trading platform is meant to show all symbols you are interested in keeping an eye on. To help, we have put together a simple guide on how to add or remove symbols from this section, so that you can tailor them to your liking.

Adding symbols

To add symbols to your Market Watch:

•Right-click anywhere inside the Market Watch window.

•Select Symbols.

•Choose the symbol group of the instrument you would like to add. In general, the categories you will find are:

                    - Forex for currency pairs (for example, EURUSD)

                    - Indices for indices(for example, US30)

                    - Energies for instruments like US Oil and UK Oil

                    - Stocks for stocks(for example, AAPL)

•Double-click on the instrument(s) you would like to add to the Market Watch window. Alternatively, you may also click on the preferred instrument(s) and click Show.

Removing symbols

To remove symbols from your Market Watch:

•Right-click on the symbol you wish to hide.

•Select Hide.

Having too many instruments in your Market Watch window can slow down your internet connectivity. Hiding them one by one can be tedious. In such a case, you may:

•Right-click any where in the Market Watch window > Select Hide All.

•Now you may proceed to add instruments of your preference using the steps described earlier.
