How to add text notes to the chart?

Adding text notes to the chart is a helpful way to annotate and keep track of your observations and analysis. By adding the text note to the chart, you can document your analysis, mark important levels or patterns, and make annotations for future reference.

You can also use it to jot down the rationale behind a trade, making it easier to review your strategies later. Labeling trendlines or other graphical elements can also provide quick context when revisiting older charts.

Furthermore, if the platform supports it, you can even set alerts linked to these text notes, reminding you to take action based on specific conditions.


  • Select the instrument of currency pair you want to analyze on the chart.
  • Select the T icon on the toolbar on the left side of the chart.
  • Position the cursor at the point on the chart you want to add the text notes.
  • Click the left mouse button and a pop-up window will appear.


You can edit and customize the text directly inside the pop-up windows, such as font style, size, color and background.

Adding text to the chart is like creating a trading journal directly on your workspace. It’s an excellent tool for highlighting key entry or exit points.
