Quick Start

Upon successful registration and login to TradingLite, you will be presented with the default chart layout.

We strongly recommend having this guide open in one tab, whilst having the TradingLite platform open in another, in order to follow along. If you have not done so already, you can sign up here.


By default, you will find:
  • Traditional candlestick price-chart (Main)
  • Volume
  • Heatmap
  • Heatmap Lens
  • VPVR
  • Grid

Each of these elements within your chart, is called a ‘Layer’.

When you begin, by default, all of these elements are within a single ‘Pane’ (Pane 0)

Layers’ can be arranged within multiple ‘Panes’.


Zoom In & Out

Freeform zoom is a powerfull tool in TradingLite, this allows you to easily zoom in and out on any part of the chart in one swift action


  • Right-click anywhere on the chart

Let’s move the volume layer into a separate, new pane.
