Besides opening symbols from the QuickBar, search results, or from existing documents, you can also open them from the TeleTrader WorkStation main window or in a different document type by using keyword commands. For example, you can open a market depth document for a default symbol (DAX) by typing the following command: .MD over the TeleTrader WorkStation main window area and then pressing the Enter key. Every document is opened with its default template.

Keyword commands are typed commands that are entered in the same way as chartable expressions. They are used for easier manipulation of documents. Each keyword command can be entered either as a full keyword, or by typing the appropriate keyword abbreviation. For example: To open a news document with the default template, you can type .NEWS or .NE and press the Enter key.

Note When entering keyword commands, you have to enter the minimum number of characters required for that specific command to be executed. For example, in order to execute the NEWS command, you can type any number of characters from the minimum up to the whole command: .NE, .NEW, or .NEWS.

Keyword commands important characteristics

▪ Keyword commands are not case sensitive. This means that keyword commands can be typed as .NEWS or .news.

▪ All keyword commands must start with a point. Typing just NEWS without the point instead of .NEWS will not execute the command.
