Real-time Graphical Technical Analysis

The graphs (or charts) on the fxTrade platform plot currency exchange rate values at time intervals ranging from seconds to days. All graphs are updated in real-time so you can see how rates have changed over time. For basic information on how to read the graphs, go to the fxTrade Platform User Guide.

The fxTrade platform provides the following technical analysis features to help you interpret the graphs.


Overlay curves are plotted directly on top of the price curve. Traders use them to compare the price curve with perceived market trends, and may react when the price curve intersects particular overlay curves.

Trend lines are added by traders to zero in on perceived price movement trends.
