Let’s keep sharing and hitting more milestones!

Depth of Market (DOM) trading is now supported through CQG on TradingView!

We are happy to announce a new trading tool on TradingView – Depth of market (DOM).  It’s already available on the charting platform, check it out!

What is Depth of Market?

Depth of Market, aka the Order Book, is a window that shows how many open buy and sell orders there are at different prices for a security. Let’s say the current price is $1, the DOM will show how many orders there are at $0.90, $1.05, etc. It’s a great tool to see where the supply and demand levels are.

How do I open DOM?

  • Connect to your CQG account.
  • Click the ↑↓ button at the top right of the chart
  • DOM for the current security will open
    • If it’s empty, then the symbol you are looking at cannot be traded through CQG.

Main parts of a DOM window explained

DOM

Which data used for DOM?

The data is streamed from CQG. The data in the DOM and the chart may be slightly different since various data sources are used.

Data is shown in a semi-static format. This means that the price rows are fixed while the price moves within the shown range. If the price moves above or below the visible range it’s recentered after 5 seconds. The 5-second timer is the middle icon, and you can recenter the current price immediately by clicking it.  

VLaKtpg
To look at prices above or below the visible range – use your mouse wheel, drag a cell up and down, or use the navigation buttons under the row.

 

Placing and changing orders

To place a market order simply click Buy Market or Sell Market. The number shows how many securities will be bought or sold, you specify that at the top of the DOM window. It also syncs with the floating trading panel.

You can place orders at a specific prices To buy – click the cell at a price you want in the left column, to sell – in the right one.

These orders will be Limit or Stop orders by default. Logically, if you want to buy below current price it will be a Limit order, and to buy above will be a Stop. For selling – above price will be a Limit, and below is a Stop. The picture below illustrates this.
Untitled Diagram11 (4)
If you want to place an order which is DIFFERENT from the defaults described above, hold the CTRL button on your keyboard and click the cell you want. The order type will be reversed Stop  ↔ Limit.

You can use the right-click menu to place an order:

DOM context menu

By default there’s a Confirmation dialog that pops up. If you want to turn this off, you can do so in the settings.

How to change an order

  1. Click the tag with the number next to the DOM – this is your order tag. You can then change any settings that you like, and click MODIFY.

      2. Click and drag the order tag to another price level. The same dialog will pop open.

  • To cancel all buy orders, click the X under the blue buying column on the left.
  • To cancel all sell orders, click the X under the red selling column on the right.
  • To cancel all orders, click the CXL ALL at the bottom of the DOM window

 

Positions and what you can do with it

If you are in a position on this symbol (you either bought or sold some), your position size will be shown as a number at the top of the DOM. If you bought (in a long position) the box will be blue, and if you sold (in a short position) it will be red.

Long position (you are hoping the price will go up!)

To close the position or reverse it, use the Flatten or Reverse buttons at the bottom of the DOM.

Stock Screener – open beta testing is starting!

House Rules Update!

Please note that our House Rules have been updated in two areas:

Idea status updates

Idea status updates were introduced in October, 2015, as a way for authors to provide quick updates on the management of their published ideas. Possible status updates are: trade active, order cancelled, target reached, stop reached, etc. We also created the possibility to add snapshots and comments. The purpose of adding status updates is, and always has been, to add important information that is relevant to the original trade idea.

Unfortunately we noticed that this feature is often used for other reasons: to promote websites, to announce webinars, to showcase YouTube videos, to link to Facebook groups, to market signal services, to ask for likes and follows, or to have prolonged public debates with individual members. This was never the intention of idea updates and we have updated the house rules to make this clear. From now on, only relevant information that is directly related to the published idea will be allowed as status updates.

Political discourse

Geopolitics is one of the areas which fundamental analysts look at to determine risk in the market and to find opportunities to trade. As such, it’s perfectly fine to address politics in ideas, comments and chats, as long as it’s part of market analysis that directly relates to a trade idea. However when people take sides in a combative way on a controversial geopolitical issue – for the sake of arguing one side and deriding the other, or for the sake of simply wanting to be right –  it often gets out of hand. Sooner or later this leads to personal attacks, discriminatory remarks, or even hate speech.

For this reason we decided to no longer allow contentious political discourse. Analyzing a certain political situation – for example the Brexit, Greece’s debt crisis or the US presidential election – and explaining how this could lead to trade opportunities is fine. Political zealotry is not fine. The goal is to keep conversations on point. Moderators will take appropriate actions with any content or users that violate this guideline. TradingView is an international website with members who have a variety of backgrounds, religions, cultures and political beliefs. What unites us is our passion for trading, our interest in financial markets and our enthusiasm for intelligent trade ideas. The House Rules are here to make sure this remains the focus of TradingView.

Please follow the link to read the rest of the rules.

Thank you for staying with us!

Real-time data stream stopped for FX:SUI20 and FX:ITA40 since June 17, 2016

FXCM announced the FX:SUI20 and FX:ITA40 markets are not traded anymore:

“Please note that the SUI20 and ITA40 will be discontinued. As of June 3rd, 2016, these two instruments will be set to ‘close only’, meaning that new positions cannot be opened. As of June 17th, these instruments will be entirely discontinued, meaning that any open positions for these instruments will be liquidated.”

As the result, real-time feed for the symbols is no longer available on TradingView. We are working on connecting an alternative source of data for these indices.

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.

New feature – apply an indicator to another indicator

This is a rather rare feature, which mainly appears in desktop applications. Now it’s available on TradingView!

You can apply an indicator (such as a Moving Average) not only to price data, but to another indicator as well. This opens a world of potential for new technical analysis, and finding new opportunities to trade.

There are three ways to do it:

1. Press the “Plus” icon next to the indicator’s name and select a new one from the list.

2. Right-click on an indicator –> Apply Indicator on…

3. Add a new indicator from the list, go to Format, open the Source list: and finally select the source of the other indicator.

This functionality also works on user-generated Pine scripts, but you need to add input(type=source). After the indicator is added to the chart, you’ll see the ability to add another indicator in the Source list.

Not all indicators can be calculated based on another indicator due to various technical nuances. So, only ones that work are shown in the indicator list.

This feature is available to all users, and Pro, Pro+ and Premium plan holders benefit from an unlimited amount.

Hope you enjoy the continuous innovation, thanks for being a part of TradingView!

New variables in Pine

At your requests, we have added built-in variables in Pine language, which helps to define current bar state.

The variables are:

  • barstate.isfirst – true if a current bar is the first in the range of bars, otherwise – false
  • barstate.islast – true if a current bar is the last in the range of bars, otherwise – false
  • barstate.ishistory – true if a current bar is a historical one, otherwise – false
  • barstate.isrealtime – true if a current bar is a real-time bar, otherwise – false
  • barstate.isnew – true if a current bar is a new bar, otherwise – false.  All historical bars are new bars. For bars updating in real-time a bar is considered as a new bar only at opening tick of this bar.

The following code demonstrates new variables in action:

//@version=2
study("My Script", overlay = true)
first = barstate.isfirst
last = barstate.islast
hist = barstate.ishistory
rt = barstate.isrealtime
new = barstate.isnew
plotchar(close, color = first ? red : na, location = location.belowbar)
plotchar(close, color = last ? blue : na, location = location.belowbar)
plotchar(close, color = hist ? gray : na, char='h')
bgcolor(color = new ? green : na)
barcolor(color = rt ? black: na)

You can copy and paste the code into your Pine Editor and click ‘Add to Chart’.
The script draws red and blue symbols under the first and the last bars accordingly and puts ‘h’ on the top of the historical bars; background of the new bars will be highlighted green, and the real-time bars will be colored black.
