I see that TexStudio highlights matching {} and () , is it possible also to somehow highlight a matching $ ?

Clearly TexStudio would have to 'know' whether to look forwards or backwards for the $ (perhaps by differentiating on whether the count of $ is odd or even), so I am guessing this is harder.

Are you using a recent version of TeXstudio? It works for me in 2.14.2.
