Dear Trader,

Many ‘scalpers’ struggle with risk, trade and money management. FXCM invites you to attend an educational “Short Term Trading and Scalping” webinar and learn how to potentially overcome these struggles while keeping your eyes on the prize.

Join James Stanley, an Active Trader and Trading Instructor at DailyFX on Wednesday, November 18 at 9:30am EST. Ask questions in real-time or be a fly on the wall watching him work the market.

In this webinar, he will teach you:

  • Short-Term Momentum Scalping in consideration of longer-term technical structures. James tries to ‘thread the needle’ of longer-term technical analysis with a shorter-term momentum-based entry approach.
  • Active implementation of DailyFX’s “Traits of Successful Traders”
  • Practical application of fundamental analysis in a short-term technical approach. News matters, and you can learn how to trade or fade near-term stimuli in a market.
  • Heavy reliance on price action, both long and short-term to set risk, plan targets, and base entries in a dynamic, real-time environment.

1. Added a new indicator to the RobBooker package.

New indicator from Rob Booker – Booker/Palladino Ghost Pivots.

Now you have even more tools for analysis within the same package!

2. New indicator package – CIT Toolbox.

The CIT Toolbox combines a mix of proprietary swing, pattern and trend trading indicators, and is designed to give users a complete and unique technical analysis perspective applicable to any instrument in any time frame.

The CIT Angles solve the key problem in dealing with Gann angles: finding the correct rise (step, rate of vibration) adapted to price level and volatility. The CIT Bars offer several improvements over Heikin-Ashi, Kagi and Renko bars. The CIT Pivots, Signals and Trend indicators will show you hidden support/resistance levels and optimal entry and exit points, and will eradicate subjectivity and emotion from your trading.

We’re glad to present the new stable release of our Charting Library (1.3 stable). We have a dozen new features and also fixed loads of bugs thanks to our amazing community. Thanks!

So, what’s new in this release:

1. Custom CSS injection (Github issue #619)

CSS is an amazing language that powers the UI on the Web. Now you can use CSS to customize your Charting Library look & feel — we’ve got a special API call which injects your CSS right into our chart.

2. Ability to execute more actions via API (#618)

With the new executeActionById() method you are able to execute tons of actions (most of which usually are done by users through UI). I.e,. you can show Insert Indicator dialog, reset the time scale, show or hide toolbars and so on.

3. Assign keyboard shortcuts (#568)

You can add your own handler to any hotkeys and the chart will call it every time the user uses it. The true power of this feature can be seen when you use our API to manipulate the chart in your handler.

4. Create even more drawings via API (#640, #448)

Now you can create any drawing tools available in the UI via the API. That’s a great feature especially for those who run dirrerent kinds of automated analysis.

5. Memory consumption fixes (#120)

No more eating tons of memory when you recurringly recreate the widget!

6. New style of marks on the chart (#286)

Those marks are tied to the time axis. You can use them to show earnings, splits, dividends, news and any other kind of events related to the symbol.

You can find the detailed information about any features in our wiki, as usual: Want to stay tuned with our updates? We’ve got a special Twitter account that posts only relevant updates. Follow it here!

Great news! We have released the long-awaited Backtesting feature in beta-testing mode! It allows you to create trading strategies in Pine Script.

A strategy is a study that can send, modify and cancel orders (to buy/sell). Strategies allow you to perform Backtesting (emulation of strategy trading on historical data) and Forwardtesting (emulation of strategy trading on real-time data) according to your precoded algorithms.

A strategy written in Pine Script language has all the same capabilities as a Pine indicator. When you write a strategy code, it should start with the keyword “strategy”, not “study”. Strategies not only plot something, but also place, modify and cancel orders. They have access to essential strategy performance information through specific keywords.

Read more about ‘Strategy’ built-in functions and variables in the script reference document and pine script tutorial:

The same information is available for you on the “Strategy Tester” tab. Once a strategy is calculated on historical data, you can see hypothetical order fills. To test strategy, apply it to the chart. Use the symbol and time interval that you want to test. You can use a built-in strategy from the “Indicators & Strategies” dialog box, or write your own in Pine Editor.

Once again, the feature is on beta stage, so your feedback is really appreciated. If you have any questions/problems/requests, feel free to write us here.

Important note! When the beta-testing is over, the feature will be available only for paid (Pro/Pro+/Premium) users. The reason of this is that strategies are calculated on our servers and increase load, that is why we cannot make it available for free users. The 5 most active users, who give us the most valuable feedback, will get access to backtesting for 1 year for free. Please post your feedback, questions and suggestions in this thread.


  • Current chart time and timezone are now displayed at the bottom of chart:

Besides, you can click on time to change timezone/session settings.

  • If your browser window is too small, the available time frames and “Go to” button are united into “Data Range” menu:

  • Average Directional Index (ADX) can be found and used as a separate indicator now:

    You can open its source code if you click “New” in Pine Editor.

  • We have improved TradingView for touch screens: navigation buttons have been removed.

  • Chart loading has been optimized.

We got lots of feedback from users that ideas with less than 15 minutes timeframe are of little relevance – they get old too fast and add noise to the idea streams. So publishing to the public gallery is now reserved for ideas with a minimum timeframe of 15 minutes and above.

The best place to share short term ideas is the chat – to get fast feedback and upvotes from other members. To share to chat, publish an idea privately and paste the link into chat. Private ideas can also be shared to any other network, such as Twitter or StockTwits. You can also send snapshots of the chart to chat. Ideas on any timeframe can be published privately.

To make sure users sharing to chat get noticed, there’s now a ”LIke” button in the chat for snapshots and ideas.
