We have upgraded our notification system. There are 2 icons on the right panel now: Ideas Stream and Notifications. All updates related to ideas and people you follow are shown in Ideas Stream, while all likes and comments for your ideas and new followers are displayed in Notifications.

You can set all notifications to appear on the right side of your computer’s desktop. It means you can receive notifications, even if you are not on TradingView page (just keep a tab with TradingView in background in your browser).

The same desktop notifications will let you know about a fresh published idea or a new comment, while you are on another tab.

Desktop notifications became available even for chart alerts!

If you configure an alert to show popup or/and play sound in its settings, you will get a desktop notification when this alert triggers.

Please don’t forget to allow TradingView notifications in your browser settings.

We also optimized user profile settings by moving chat notification settings from that page into chats on the right panel.

Stay tuned for more improvements!

We have updated Pine Script. The latest version contains the long-awaited features: loops and mutable variables. Besides, we released multiple improvements and bug fixes for strategies.

As you know, Pine Script is a series-oriented scripting language, where most of goals are achieved by converting series values with help of built-in functions. Yet we received a lot of feedback describing disadvantages of such approach and showing high demand on statements for loops.

Loop and mutable variables syntax is demonstrated below:

//@version=2
study("Simple Moving Average")
len = input(9)
sum = 0
for i = 0 to len-1
    sum := sum + close[i]
plot(sum/len)

sum’ is a mutable variable and a new value can be given to it by an operator  ‘:=’ in body of the loop.

Please note that we recommend to use a built-in function ‘sma’ for Moving Average as it calculates faster.

It’s just a very simple example, the loop doesn’t even return a value here (a = for …). You can use ‘break’ and ‘continue’ in loop body and set a step size for the counter (for … by 2). To learn more about loops and mutable variable, check our Tutorial.

Read more about the Pine Script Language in the Pine Script Tutorial and in the Pine Script Reference.

 

We have improved the spread feature, so now you can use math operators to create custom spread charts with symbols from QUANDL. Just in case you didn’t know, it is possible to use the math operators (+-*/) to create a custom graph with any available symbols on TradingView. You can even use invariables in your formulas: “MSFT + 50”.

With the latest update, QUANDL symbols can be included in a spread formula. Please note that you need to quote whole symbol name, if this is a symbol from QUANDL. Here is an example: ‘QUANDL:BOC/V39066’ – ‘QUANDL:FRED/DTB6’

QUANDL is huge database that stores a lot of statistical and economical data from all over the world. TradingView gives you access to this data and allows you to operate it the way you want.

We have added the annotation function alertcondition allows you to create custom alert conditions in Pine studies.

The function has the following signature:

alertcondition(condition, title, message)

‘condition’ is a series of boolean values that is used for alert. Available values: true, false. True means alert condition is met, alert should trigger. False means alert condition is not met, alert should not trigger. It is a required argument.

‘tiile’ is an optional argument that sets the name of the alert condition.

‘message’ is an optional argument that specifies text message to display when the alert fires.

Here is example of creating an alert condition:

//@version=2
study("Example of alertcondition")
src = input(close)
ma_1 = sma(src, 20)
ma_2 = sma(src, 10)
c = cross(ma_1, ma_2)
alertcondition(c, title='Red crosses blue', message='Red and blue have crossed!')
plot(ma_1, color=red)
plot(ma_2, color=blue)

The function creates alert condition that is available in Create Alert dialog. Please note, that alertcondition does NOT fire alerts from code automatically, it only gives you opportunity to create a custom condition for Create Alert dialog. Alerts must be still set manually. Also, an alert triggered based on a custom condition you created in Pine code is not displayed on a chart.

One script may include more than one alertcondition.

To create an alert based on alertcondition, one should apply a Pine code (study) with alertcontidion to current chart, open the Create Alert dialog, select the applied Pine code as main condition for the alert and choose the specific alert condition (implemented in the code itself).

As you know, we have added option to show most important events on FOREX, BitCoin and CFD charts. Now you can see even more events on intraday and 1 day charts! Orange (normal importance) and yellow (low importance) events are displayed on low timeframe charts, where they may affect price movements.
event1
There is no need to configure anything, our intelligent system picks events for current chart timeframe for you.
event2

We also improved our calendar tool: there is no need to guess on Friday what is coming on Monday anymore, because now you can see events for 5 next days in the calendar. The button “Closest Events” will help you quickly switch to nearest one.
event3

Stay tuned for more improvements!

Did you know that it is possible to bind a text note to a symbol? You can easily do this from the right-click menu on chart or in Watchlist. You can also use keyboard shortcut (ALT+N) to quickly create a note on current symbol.

Symbols with notes have special icons in Watchlist:

Now if you point your mouse cursor on that icon, it will show the note header:

Click the icon to open it in the bottom panel.

Today one of our FOREX and CFD data providers – FXCM – experienced an issue with their data network. The problem affected both FXCM native applications and external charting platforms like TradingView : approximately at 09:48 EST all FXCM charts stopped updating. The problem was addressed quickly, however at the moment there is a 30 minutes gap in FXCM data on all markets. According to our information, they are working to fill this gap, but we cannot give any estimation when it will be done.

If you find any app where the gap is filled, however it is till present on TradingView charts, we would appreciate this info. Please send it to support@tradingview.com

If you have multiple panes on your chart, it is now possible to maximize any of them to see more details.

To do this, simply double-click anywhere on the pane you want to maximize or click the icon in the top right corner:

When it is maximized, the icon turns blue. To minimize a pane to its original size, the same double click or icon click is needed.

TradingView charts have flexible settings that allow you to configure current chart for your needs: colors of text and background, vertical and horizontal grid lines, crosshair, price scale labels, etc.

Here is one more: now you can change font size for text on the price and time scales. It is available on the Background tab in chart properties:

Of course, you can save it as part of a template and apply the template (including all other settings) in couple of mouse clicks.

Stay tuned for more improvements!

You asked and we listened. The long-awaited check box that allows you to see real market price on Heikin Ashi chart type is finally available!

In chart properties you can check off “Show real prices on price scale (instead of Heikin-Ashi prices)”. If you do this and save the chart, this configuration will be used as default one for every new Heikin Ashi chart.

Important note! This checkbox affects only the current price label shown on the price scale.
Stay tuned for more improvements!

Dear Trader,

At last, it is here. The day that much of the economic world has been waiting for, in which the Federal Reserve is expected to, finally, raise the rates. The expectation is for a 25 basis point hike, but what isn’t known is what will happen thereafter. FXCM invites you to attend a special “FOMC Rate Decision” webinar to help you navigate through the chaos that follows.

Join James Stanley, an Active Trader and Trading Instructor at DailyFX, on Wednesday, December 16 at 1:45 pm EST.  In this free webinar, he will cover:

  • Real-time analysis around the most pivotal Fed meeting in years. The December FOMC meeting is expected to bring on heavy volatility, as the Federal Reserve looks at their first rate hike in over nine years.
  • Incorporating price action in real-time in order to integrate technical analysis during this market-moving fundamental event. Whether you’re a technical trader or a fundamental trader, both schools of analysis can offer value to an analytical approach.
  • Sound Risk Management principals to help you decide whether to pull the trigger based on your trading plan and approach. If you don’t have a plan, that’s ok. DailyFX is happy to provide a framework with which you can build that plan.  This research is built on the DailyFX Traits of Successful Traders research series, based on a quantitative study of real trades placed by actual traders.  If you’d like to read the research, it’s available here, and James will cover this in real-time during this webinar as Ms. Yellen and the Federal Reserve provides the last major market-moving event of the year.

We have slightly changed the mechanism for selecting ideas to show on our home page. Previously, all ideas were viewed and suggested manually, but now we believe this approach must be changed because: a) it takes much time to moderate all ideas, b) our users has formed an advanced community that is capable to filter ideas on main page on its own. It means that from now on all ideas will automatically appear in Trending Feed right after they are posted, with no post-moderation. Those ideas will be sorted according their popularity among the community.

If an idea violates our House Rules, it is excluded from the feed, so please keep up following  the rules. Moderators will hide a published idea if it violates any of the following five (5) rules. A note will always be sent to the author in such a case. A publication should:

  • Be in the main language of the site section (for localized versions). English, for English, Japanese for Japanese, etc. The main section will be in English.
  • Be on topic and related to trading / the financial markets.
  • Contain content that is your original work.
  • Not contain excessive advertisement. Some references are allowed in moderation. Links to websites / materials should be at the end of the description and don’t put any logos / websites / company names on the chart itself.
  • Not be used to voice complaints, grievances or disagreements with policies, to insult or ridicule other members, or to create conflict within the community. This includes directly or indirectly mocking, misrepresenting or abusing other published ideas or analysis.

Any content that violates these rule may result in the author getting a warning, published idea being hidden, and/or limiting the author’s ability to post more ideas.

TradingView celebrates open communication and creative ideas. We want you to express yourself freely and use TradingView to share insights, learn from others, make friends and share the love for finance.
