Cryptowatch has launched its first TA (Technical Analysis) alert type — SMA price crosses. You can now have an alert trigger when an SMA line crosses above or below the current price.
We’ve also updated the trading panel. Now you can collapse (and expand) the conditional close section of the trading form. The Total field of the conditional close section is now directly editable, too.
In the Analysis menu, we’ve added the new Weighted Moving Average indicator (WMA). The WMA reacts faster to recent price changes than an Exponential or Simple moving average (EMA, SMA).
On the Correlations page, a graph of historical correlation changes is now in the background of each cell.
The alert triggers when the SMA line (programmed using the alert options) crosses above or below the current price. To learn more, check out our Guide: How to set TA alerts.
You can now fill out a conditional close (in markets where the option is available) and collapse that section of the form, tidying up the view. A summary of the conditional close order is still visible. Click “Conditional Close” again to expand the section.
We’ve also made the Total field editable in the Conditional close section of the trade panel.
We’ve added the Weighted Moving Average (WMA) overlay to the Analysis menu. The WMA line adds weight to each data point based on its relation to the current price. This makes it more reactive to recent price changes than other moving average lines, like the SMA and EMA. The results are sharper peaks and troughs and, potentially, earlier trend signals.
The background of each cell in the Correlations page now displays the rolling correlation over time. The correlations page tracks how closely assets match each other in price action (eg. Asset 1 goes up, so does Asset 2).

Lastly, you can now share themes in chat. Sending a theme in chat lets other traders copy or instantly apply the theme.
