This indicator allows you to switch from one time frame to another or from one symbol to another just by pressing keyboard arrow keys, it works simultaneously across all your open cTrader charts.
The way this indicator works is it starts listening to keyboard events, whenever you attach it on a chart, and when the appropriate keys pressed it changes the chart time frame or symbol.
You can set up to 10 time frames and as many symbols as you want to, and it will change the time frame or symbol based on the order you given.
The difference between the way this indicator works and the cTrader built-in up/down arrow hotkeys is when you use this indicator and attach it on several cTrader charts it changes the time frame or symbol simultaneously on all charts, not just the chart that has the focus.
You have to first press either right or left control button (ctrl) and then either up/down arrow buttons for changing the time frame or left/right arrow buttons for changing the symbol.
The indicator only works on the attached charts, it will not have any effect on charts that you haven’t attached.
- Simultaneously changes all attached charts time frame/symbol
- Easy to setup
- No limit on the number of symbols
Note: The “ctrl” button must be pressed before the arrow buttons otherwise indicator will not work

Wayne Allen –
Thank you so much !!!,.. the ability to cycle though all the symbols in my watchlist with a simple keystroke saves me so much time. Previously i had to open up the watchlist tab in the left, click on the symbol with my mouse, then hide the watchlist window so i could see all the charts,… then repeat for the next, this might not seem much but when you have 30 symbols to go through multiple times a day it is easy to click the wrong thing or get lost. With this indicator i can go through them looking for opportunities in a quarter of the time.
