The Cryptowatch Marketing team also recently posted a comprehensive reading list from our very own The Dude, who spent over a decade yelling and screaming in the NYMEX and COMEX trading pits, as well as an interview with @lowstrife and a report on Bitcoin spot market growth.
Bitfinex margin pairs now have their available leverage options in the trading form:
We’ve also added a refresh button in the top-right of the trading form that will re-synchronize Cryptowatch to the market’s exchange. The trade settings menu is also conveniently relocated to the top-right corner of the trading form as well:

You can now download ledgers of your 2019 transaction history from Kraken, Coinbase Pro, Binance, and Bitfinex directly from the
History Export tab of your portfolio in Cryptowatch. Downloadable as CSV files, these ledgers can be used to help with tax reporting, trade style analysis, or value at risk (VaR) calculations.
In order to get your downloads, you will need to have the correct permissions set for your exchanges’ API keys so Cryptowatch can download and format the data. Each export will have the fields you need to break down each transaction on your account: timestamp, type (fee, income, deposit, withdrawal, buy, sell), asset, quantity, value, transaction ID and even the onchain transaction ID if relevant and the exchange supports that info.
Requests may take up to 24 hours to prepare - we will email you when your report is ready.
Now, in addition to setting alerts by clicking on the y-axis of the price and volume charts, you can set and edit alerts in a modal. We also added a new method of alert delivery:
