Managing Tickers in the Watchlist

Publication date is


A ticker is a live price feed of an asset and contains relevant information which is continuously updated. A "tick" means any change in the price of an asset. Your tickers are stored in a Watchlist.

In TabTrader tickers are presented in the form of cards within the Watchlist. They constantly report the current price and best bid and ask prices, as well as price change and volume over the preconfigured timeframe.

Moreover, tickers display a line chart of an asset, colored according to market movement.

Tickers also show the available balance of the ticker asset.

Adding New Tickers

By using the “+ Ticker” button at the bottom of the page, you can search for an exchange or trading instrument, or choose from popular currency pairs displayed in the search window. To add the resulting ticker, enable the checkbox to the left of the instrument.

How to add new tickers to your watchlist:

  • Click the "+ Ticker" button under the existing default tickers on your Watchlist page.
  • Select any popular pair and exchange, for example BTC/USDT on Binance, or simply type the name of the instrument of interest in the search bar.
  • Select the instrument.
    The new ticker will be added to the Watchlists screen.
  • Click "x" button in the search bar to return to the search screen.
  • Click "X" button in the upper right corner or anywhere outside the “Instruments” window to return to the current Watchlist.

Ticker customization

You can easily sort, edit and adjust the tickers as you like.

The following actions can be done at any time using the action bar on the Watchlists page.
