Clarification announcement Spanish version

Last July we announced the roll out of the Spanish version. The new version was well received and is growing steadily, but we need to clarify something.

Since the announcement we noticed that some native speakers who were used to publishing ideas in English on the main section, switched to publishing in Spanish on the same section. Unfortunately this violates House Rules, because all ideas published on the main section have to be in English.

If you want to publish ideas in Spanish, you need to first navigate to the Spanish section via the drop-down menu on the homepage. This section features a completely localized interface for charts and social features.

There’s no problem with publishing in English, but every region has its own language. If an idea has to be published in multiple languages, you can use the same chart but it needs to be created with a new title and new content in the language you are writing.

We hope this clarifies it!

Improvements to Gann drawings

In response to significant demand we made further improvements to Gann drawing tools. These are live now on the charting platform.

Gann Box and Gann Square now have new options:

  • Price scale adjustment

Here’s the typical case – “I used a Gann square but dragged the chart around and it’s no longer square”. Well, now there’s a button to easily readjust the price scale. This will return the drawing square again.

  • Reverse

The Reverse button will rotate the drawing around its main points.

  • Corner rays

Use the Angles options to draw all the corner rays in the Gann Square. You can also change the colors!

Big facelift for TradingView – mobile-friendly and responsive!

As many already know, there’s a new and improved version of TradingView! It was built to perform super well on mobile and tablets. A responsive tile design fits your screen no matter which device you prefer. It’s also a lot faster and better looking :)

We enhanced the homepage with news, market summary, market movers, economic calendar, and a few other things. You can easily choose which widgets to show if you don’t need all that info. They can be turned off and on as needed.

Already more than 30% of the community is using the new version, and we’ll be replacing the old version for everyone in a few days. Check it out now to get familiar with it before it goes live for everyone!

Changes to FXCM CFD data

As many of our users already know, FXCM CFD data will be available only to FXCM account holders. We are getting lots of questions about the upcoming transition and we want to clarify that the situation is due to a request by FXCM. TradingView can’t affect the situation.  

It’s important to understand that we do not force anyone to create or use an FXCM account – we simply found a way for you to keep access to FXCM CFD data if you really need it. You’ll need either a demo or live account on FXCM, and the verification on TradingView takes only a couple of clicks. Creating a demo account on FXCM also takes a couple of minutes and doesn’t put any obligations on you.

At the same time we want to highlight that each FXCM CFD symbol has an alternative, including official symbols from CME, BME, ASX, NYMEX, etc. We will also offer refund options for unused periods going forward to users for whom this is a serious disruption.

Our chart and widget users can switch to alternative symbols:

INDEX:DXY (EOD) or ICEUSA:DX1! (EOD) = Dollar Index
INDEX:FTSE (EOD) = FTSE 100 index
INDEX:SPX (EOD) = SPX index
INDEX:BNG (EOD) = Natural Gas
INDEX:IUXX (EOD) = NASDAQ 100 index
INDEX:NKY (EOD) = Nikkei 225 index
INDEX:HSI (EOD) = Hang Seng Index
INDEX:DAX (EOD) or EUREX:DY1! (EOD) = DAX index
INDEX:CAC (EOD) = French 40 index
INDEX:MOY0 (EOD) or EUREX:FX1! (EOD) = Euro stoxx 40
INDEX:BIC (EOD) = COPPER
EUREX:GG1! (EOD) = Euro Bund
INDEX:DOWI (EOD) = DOW industrials, wall street 30 shares.
FX_IDC:USDWTI = USOIL WTI
FX_IDC:USDBRO = UKOIL BRENT
FX_IDC:XAUUSD = GOLD
FX_IDC:XAGUSD = SILVER
FX_IDC:XPDUSD = PALLADIUM
FX_IDC:XPTUSD = PLATINUM

Keep charts in sync

We have added a new feature for multichart layouts: synchronization by date and time. It will let you sync multiple charts with 1 mouse click.

There is no need to scroll every single chart on your multichart layout any more. All you need to do is to enable trackIng time on all charts when selecting a layout:


If on chart 1 you see a date/time stamp that is beyond the visible interval on chart 2, then you can click on that date/time stamp on chart 1 to sync chart 2 (and all other charts, if you have more) to display the same time interval on all graphs.

Stay tuned for more improvements!

Duplicate accounts and reputation score

TradingView is devoted to bringing more transparency and accountability to discussions of the financial markets on the web. This is why – as per our house rules – registering with multiple accounts is strictly prohibited. Recently our system caught a number of members actively using duplicate accounts to artificially inflate the reputation score of their original accounts through follows, likes and comments.

As we previously announced, we will ban the duplicates permanently and also the original accounts get banned for a substantial period and we make sizable corrections to their reputation scores. This practice is given extra attention to ensure that members who use fake accounts to obtain an improper advantage will not succeed.

TradingView has always been a place where everyone can earn reputation points on equal and fair terms, through publishing great ideas and engaging the community. We are committed to making sure it stays that way.

Alerts on Heikin Ashi, Kagi, Renko, Point & Figure and Line Break charts!

Our users can set alerts on the abovementioned chart types now!

Please note that such alerts have a few characteristics:

  • Unlike the alerts for regular charts (bars, candles, etc), the alerts for non-standard chart types are timeframe-dependent, because the same non-standard chart may look different if its timeframe is changed.
  • Labels of such alerts are shown on graphs of the type, where they have been set.
  • Alerts don’t trigger on projection bars. Only when the projection bars are formed, an alert fires.

There are several ways to set an alert:
1. The button on top toolbar:
 
2. The button in alerts manager window

3. From the right-click menu

4. The button on drawing panel

5. The tab in properties window of a drawing object:

6. The “plus” button next to current price on price scale: 

7. Keyboard shortcut: ALT+A.

You can add alerts for data series, indicator plots and drawing objects on TradingView.

Stay tuned for more improvements!

Coinbase (GDAX) data now available

  • BTCCAD
  • BTCEUR
  • BTCGBP

Now you’ve got even more cryptocurrencies!

Trading US stocks, futures and Forex is live on TradingView!

At last putting the “trading” into TradingView, as was always envisioned, we are supporting the first batch of brokers for live trading. You can now place live or demo orders while using your favorite platform and staying on top of latest happenings.

US stock, US futures and Forex is supported through the CQG infrastructure on TradingView. You can also get real-time US futures data for $0 extra if you have a live brokerage account!

 

How it works

Many brokers and Futures Commission Merchants (FCMs) use CQG as an option to power their trading. Here’s a list of some FCMs brokers that use CQG, but it’s not exhaustive.

In short, if your broker has a CQG option, and you have a CQG-powered account with them, you can trade through TradingView.

3 easy steps

  1. Log into your free or upgraded TradingView account.
  2. If you have a CQG-powered trading account – open the Trading Panel on the chart. If you don’t, go get a demo account to start with.
  3. Type in your account credentials, the ones you got from your broker (not the TradingView login!). Choose LIVE or DEMO depending on your account type.
  4. Trade!

Real-time US Futures data

You need real-time data to trade. Pretty much each exchange charges per-user fees, which you are paying if you have a live account (some brokers pay them for you). So, to avoid paying twice, you need to validate through our interface that you have a live trading account.

Under the hood

Brokers focus on building customer relationships and accounts, and CQG is one of the solutions used to physically store and process orders. TradingView is an officially certified CQG tech partner, we use a specialized WebAPI to transfer your orders and don’t store your trading account credentials. You can definitely relax about security of your sensitive information.

 

Important: Some brokers who use CQG are still going getting on board. If you see an error message “Account is disabled”, or something similar – reach out to your broker to solve it. Most of the time they need to enable TradingView on their end. Any questions – our support can be reached through support@tradingview.com.

CLOSED BETA – Forex and CFD trading on TradingView

It’s a beginning of something big – you can now place trades directly from TradingView. No need to step away from the platform or the chatter, get everything you need in one place.

We are starting with enabling trading Forex and CFDs (contracts for difference) through FXCM, a well-known broker. Here’s their profile page on TradingView and here’s the official site. Eventually we’ll support trading of more asset classes through a variety of brokers.

We need a small group of beta testers to get first access, try trading through FXCM and provide detailed feedback. Send private message to the user @admin on TradingView to request first-look access to the trading experience. Both demo and live accounts are supported, to test you will need to have an account with FXCM.

The tech we used to connect to FXCM (and more brokers down the line) is Tradable, a cool tech company that provides a layer between TradingView and select brokers. So, we connect only once to Tradable, and then they connect to all the brokers, that way there’s no need for us to build multiple connections. It’s very secure and super fast, you can check out their site here.  

Internet Explorer 9 is no longer supported

TradingView will stop supporting Internet Explorer 9 since 20th of May, 2016.

Our charts require WebSocket technology, that is not available in IE9. Previously we had been using alternative ways to make our charts work in IE9, however it has become too problematic recently. Please make sure that you updated your browser.
