On Monday August 11th we are starting official beta testing of the Alerts feature. If anyone hasn’t received access to the beta version of alerts, you’ll get it on Monday. For a great overview of Alerts, take a look at a video by our super awesome moderator Chris Moody (view full screen for full HD resolution). Please find more videos at http://videos.tradingview.com.

The long-awaited Pine Script Sharing has been implemented! Now you can share your scripts with the rest of the TradingView community. Just write the script, add it to a chart and publish it.  For a great overview of Script Sharing, take a look at a video by our super awesome moderator Chris Moody (view full screen for full HD resolution). Please find more videos at http://videos.tradingview.com.

Please note that we changed the layout and made it easier to add published scripts to your personal library. The process is now more logical and much clearer – it’s just like bookmarking pages in a browser. Unfortunately, all previously added scripts are now removed, but you can easily find them in the script database and add them again.

To add a script to your personal library, just mark it as a “Favorite”:

Now it’s easier to navigate your scripts and the Script Library:

We also separated published ideas and published scripts. Now the scripts are not duplicated on the Ideas page.

 

The search is now immediately done on all published scripts:

A separate section for published scripts is now available in the user profile.

A good partner of ours Futures Magazine (the well-known 40-year-old futures publication) is having a promotion to celebrate their 500th issue. The offer is good for a free digital edition of the 500th issue , as well as  U.S. and international delivery for 50% discount subscription fee. May be useful for the TradingView crowd!

New indicator package in the TradingView AppStore – Key Hidden Levels.

It includes the following indicators:

  • Earnings Price Support;

  • Options Price Support;

  • Range Movement;

  • UDIO Bars.

The Tim West Studies are designed to help you see key hidden levels in a stock chart so you are more prepared to assess where it might go in the future. The levels are fundamental to how markets work and relate to 16 important “battle” dates each year out of more than 250 bars to confuse you. We take the relevant days and make them stand out. Which days? The 4 days a year that companies report EARNINGS and the 12 monthly options expiration days. With the power of TradingView, you can now view graphs of these important dates, with a proprietary twist, that allows you to see where buyers or sellers may still be lurking long after the earnings report is forgotten by the average traders. In order to be above average, you need to have more information than everyone else.

SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE – August 2, 2014

We’ll be improving some services and TradingView may have some service interruptions.

Thanks for your understanding!

Couple of days ago we announced a deep integration of TradingView with Quandl which allows you to apply Commitment of Traders (COT) values on the chart.

Here is the list of the COT studies from our Public Pine Script Library:

COT (Legacy): Open Interest
COT (Legacy): Open Interest Change
COT (Legacy): Total Traders
COT (Legacy): Commercial Interest
COT (Legacy): Commercial Interest Change
COT (Legacy): Commercial Interest Percent
COT (Legacy): Commercial Traders
COT (Legacy): Noncommercial Interest
COT (Legacy): Noncommercial Interest Change
COT (Legacy): Noncommercial Interest Percent
COT (Legacy): Noncommercial Traders
COT (Legacy): Reportable Interest
COT (Legacy): Reportable Interest Percent
COT (Legacy): Reportable Interest Change
COT (Legacy): Reportable Traders
COT (Legacy): Non-Reportable Interest
COT (Legacy): Non-Reportable Interest Change
COT (Legacy): Non-Reportable Interest Percent
COT (Legacy): Largest 4 Gross
COT (Legacy): Largest 8 Gross
COT (Legacy): Largest 4 Net
COT (Legacy): Largest 8 Net

 

What is COT all about?

The Commitments of Traders (COT) reports show futures traders’ positions at the close of (usually) Tuesday’s trading session. The report is prepared by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), a U.S. government body with the task of overseeing futures markets. The report’s goal is to create transparency and fight market manipulation. Also, it is an excellent trading tool.

 

How does the report show traders’ positions?

Traders are grouped into categories and the number of contracts they hold are added up. All COT reports show how many long and how many short contracts do traders of each category hold. The COT report that is the most well known is the one that is in publication since 1986 (its predecessors go back to 1924) – the Legacy report. It breaks down the market into three major categories, the Commercials, the Large Speculators and Non-reportables (who are the small guys, Small speculators).

TradingView now has the option to add intraday real-time futures data to your account! You can now add the following exchanges:

  • CME Real-time Quotes ($90 / mo)

  • CME E-mini Equity Real-time Quotes ($45 / mo)

  • CBOT Real-time Quotes ($90 / mo)

  • CBOT E-mini Real-time Quotes ($25 / mo)

  • NYMEX Real-time Quotes ($90 / mo)

  • NYMEX E-mini Real-time Quotes ($35 / mo)

  • COMEX Real-time Quotes ($90 / mo)

  • COMEX E-mini Real-time Quotes ($25 / mo)

Each one can be purchased separately, with the E-mini packages obviously being less expensive. Remember, you have to have one of the PRO subscriptions to add any real-time exchanges.

NOTE: CME Group charges TradingView hefty exchange fees to show their data – we are only charging a few extra $ per exchange to cover our costs. One of the possible reasons is that TradingView doesn’t yet support broker accounts that qualify for a fee waiver – thus making the fees equivalent to display terminals. We are always researching ways to get better prices for our users.

TradingView integrates Quandl – Best Web Charting Meets 9 Million Datasets!

We are super happy to announce a deep integration of TradingView with Quandl! Quandl is an open data platform which provides access to over 9 million free datasets. This awesome development is unique because it opens unprecedented horizons in online market analysis!

Quandl doesn’t provide real-time or intraday price data, but has a HUGE amount of statistical and economic data from all over the world.

Few examples:

  • Short Interest & Bullish/Bearish Sentiment Index data for stocks. Now you can add these metrics right to your chart, just like an indicator.
  • Fundamental Fields from SEC and Damodaran – right on your chart.
  • Commitment of Traders (COT) value for futures contracts (provided by CFTC)
  • International Stocks
  • Thousands of Economics & Social Data fields from all over the world!

Basically, you can now visualize ANY data that Quandl has right on TradingView! Even more awesome, you can host your data with Quandl, and then it will appear for analysis on TradingView charts!

How it works:

You can add datasets from Quandl to the TradingView chart in two ways:

  1. As a symbol series.
  2. As a study using Pine script.

 

Method 1 – Adding Quandl data as a symbol series

The first option is best if you want to plot bars for symbols that are not available on TradingView.

  1. For example, you want to see DAX Index (Germany), and TradingView doesn’t have it yet. Follow these steps:
  2. Find DAX Index (Germany) on Quandl.com and open it.
  3. Note the “Quandle Code” in the top right corner.
  4. Copy & paste it into the Symbol Edit on TradingView using ‘QUANDL:’ prefix. You will end up with a line like this: QUANDL:YAHOO/INDEX_GDAXI.
  5. Press Enter.

Now you have a DAX Index chart on TradingView! You can add any data series to the chart in the same fashion. It doesn’t have to be price data, it can, for example, be the USA Economy Data.

You can also add any data series from Quandl as a second symbol to the chart by using Add/Compare. For example, the DAX Index will look like this:

Or it can be the Unemployment Rate in California:

NOTE: Keep in mind that many Quandl datasets contain more than one data series, for example http://www.quandl.com/ISE/IND_S. To request the required data series, you’ll need to add its number after a ‘|’ delimiter to your request. For example, to get the ‘10 avg’ column from ISE Sentiment Index, use ‘QUANDL:ISE/IND_SI|1’. If you don’t specify that parameter, then the first data series from the dataset will be used.

 

Method 2 – Adding Quandl data as a Pine script study.

The QUANDL study from Pine Public Library  was built to display Quandl data on the chart. Just apply it to the chart and specify the QUANDL Code in the input.

Let’s say you are looking at a chart of Apple (AAPL stock). You can easily add any fundamental data from this page, or something like the Short Interest to your chart by using the QUANDL study, or the Commitments of Traders (COT).

 

How to Effectively Use Quandl Data with Pine Script

TradingView’s Pine lets you request data from Quandl right from your scripts. You can then manipulate that data however you want.

For example  some data (like Dividends, or Short Interest) always refers to a particular stock. So, to avoid manually rerequesting data for each new symbol that you view (looking up the quandl code, adding it to your chart, etc), you can automate the process.

Solution – You can make your study automatically request appropriate data based on the symbol that’s currently on your chart. We made a couple of examples,such as the Pine Short Interest script. If you add this study to a chart, it will display the Short Interest for whatever symbol that you have on the chart.

In the Pine Script Public Library, you can find other studies, such as the Bullish Sentiment Index & Bearish Sentiment Index that do the same thing.

You can write a similar “syncing” studies for any other data set that interests you, such as the Commitment of Traders value for futures. The possibilities and combinations in which you can use the data are limitless!

All studies mentioned above are in open access in the public library, and you are welcome to share yours with the community!

NOTE: Use the following function to reference datasets from Quandl
// with default mapping (OHLCV will be auto mapped if they exists)
quandl(code) => security("QUANDL:" + code, “D”, close)
// explicitly specify column to return
quandl(code, column) => security("QUANDL:" + code + “|” + to_string(column), “D”, close)

Host your data with Quandl and display it for analysis on TradingView charts!

Now you can finally view your own data on TradingView! You just need to register on Quandl.com (free) and upload your data. Then you can add it to your TradingView chart using the methods described above.

 

 

Quandl contains TONS of data from different areas of expertise, all of which can be easily requested from Pine scripts. This opens completely new and exciting ways to analyze financial markets!

 

Hi all,

Unfortunately, some TradingView users faced an issue in the last couple of days, where they were unable to access charts with data. The issue has now been fixed, and here’s a brief recap of what happened.

Latest issue appeared at 18:25 UTC on Saturday, July 26th. After we’ve understood what’s happening, our dev sent the first report email on Sunday July 27th at 7:38 am UTC.

Here’s a quote from Barchart, our data provider, which we just received:

“Barchart experienced a historical database issue over the weekend and this morning resulting in the intermittent unavailability of historical market data.  This issue has been resolved and we apologize for the inconvenience. TradingView receives historical market data from Barchart. This issue was on Barchart’s end, not TradingView.”

This issue affected our both primary and backup channels, so that safeguard didn’t help in this instance. We are now working with Barchart to analyze the issue, to understand its roots and to make sure it doesn’t happen again.

We thank you you for your understanding. Thanks for being with us!

TradingView team.
