We are super excited to announce that TradingView was accepted as one of the 10 participants in the TechStars Chicago accelerator program this summer! This means we’ll be going down to Chicago to meet great new folks, hone up our offering and get some investors for our projects!

Let us know if you’d like to meet us in Chicago this summer.

For those of you that don’t know, TechStars Chicago, formerly Excelerate Labs, had over 900 applicants from 6 continents making it the most competitive class the program has seen. TechStars Chicago portfolio companies enter into an intensive three-month summer program, followed by Demo Day, an annual August event that allows companies to showcase their products by pitching to more than 500 investors from across the country.

Acceptance rate for TechStars Chicago was just 1.1% (10 companies out of 904 applications), which is even tougher than major Ivy League schools.

At part of the program, TradingView receives $18K in seed funding and also has the option of a $100K convertible debt note. But more importantly they will have the opportunity to work with over 150 mentors that include CEO Sam Yagan, GrubHub cofounder Mike Evans, and Foundry Group cofounder Brad Feld. Last year’s class had over 600 one-on-one meetings with the mentors in the month of June alone.

TechStars Chicago Demo Day will take place at the House of Blues on August 28th.

Here are the main features that we added recently:

Pre-built hot lists continuously scan the US stock market to identify best trading opportunities. HotLists dynamically show different symbols based on the criteria selected. Not to be confused with watchlists that always show only the symbols you chose to monitor.


Follow symbols
Now you can follow symbols just like you follow other users. You can follow all symbols that interest you and receive real-time and email alerts when a new idea is posted.


Bar Pattern drawing tool
New drawing tool that is unique to TradingView. It copies your price bars, creates a drawing out of them and lets you drag it around the chart. You can, for example, compare recent price movements to past or future moves.

HLC Bars
Added a new type of chart called High-Low-Close bars.

HotKeys for Watchlist
You can now use your keyboard to switch between symbols in the watchlist. Space, Shift+Space and up/down arrows are supported keys.


Did you know that you can add multiple symbols as overlays (one on top of another), or in different sub charts (stacking)?



Price-based charts get their name because they take into account only price movements and ignore time and volume.
Point and Figure

This chart type only plots price movements, without taking time into consideration. A column of X’s is plotted as the price rises—and O’s as the price drops.

If you hold SHIFT while drawing a line, it will draw at a perfect 45 degree angle. This is especially useful when working with Point & Figure charts.



This chart type only plots price movements, without taking time or volume into consideration. It is constructed from ticks and looks like bricks stacked in adjacent columns. A new brick is drawn after the price passes the top or bottom of previously predefined amount.




This chart type looks like a continuous line that changes directions and switches from thin to bold. The direction changes when the price changes beyond a predefined amount, and the line switches between thin and bold if the last change bypassed the last horizontal line.



3 Line break

This chart type only plots price movements, without taking time or volume into consideration. This chart type displays a series of vertical boxes that are based on price changes.



Heiken-Ashi means “average bar” in Japanese. Open, High, Low and Close prices of HA candlesticks are not actual prices, they are results from avergaing values of the previous bar, which helps eliminate random volatility.

TradingView MarketPlace allows third party developers to integrate their trading product to TradingView. DecisionBar are independent, unaffiliated studies, which are not part of TradingView subscriptions – these are separate tools that you buy if you want. Description, algorithm, support and prices are all determined by the author.

DecisionBar Trading Software is based on the concept that market movement is psychological in nature and is driven by supply and demand, support and resistance, and momentum and exhaustion.

Since a price chart is graphical representation of just two variables, price and time, DecisionBar attempts to clarify what those two variable are telling you, as opposed to obscuring that information with complex mathematical formulas. DecisionBar works by keeping track of what the market you are trading has done in the past, and then alerting you when trading opportunities based on that movement occur in real-time.

DecisionBar can be adjusted to limit signals and whipsaws in volatile markets, alert you to trend changes in trending markets, as well as to give frequent signals for traders who use a “scalping” style of trading.

DecisionBar includes a BiasBar and Risk Oscillator to help you determine if a signaled trade is in sync with the market, and a Trailing Stop Module, based on Average True Range, to help you manage you trades as well as lock in profits.

The Trailing Stop Module can be set to tighten your stops when a preset profit threshold is reached, as well as adjust dynamically to changes in volatility, tightening your stops quicker if volatility decreases, and slower if volatility increases.

DecisionBar can be used on Bar and Candlestick charts and well as Renko and Heiken-Ashi charts. DecisionBar does not work on Point and Figure and Kagi charts. Please see the example of DecisionBar applied to TradingView charts below. The meaning of each signal is explained in the DecisionBar Trading Manual, but for the purposes of this discussion, all you have to know is that Green signals are Buy signals and Red signals are Sell signals. (Note: If you sign-up for DecisionBar for TradingView you will receive the DecisionBar Trading Manual via immediate download.)
