TradingView Charts Tutorial – Beginner’s Training Guide

TradingView is an online platform for viewing and analyzing stock, fiat and cryptocurrency price quotes.

In my opinion, TradingView has the best looking, most customizable and most easy-to-use user interface available.

Although TradingView does not have their own stock, fiat or cryptocurrency exchange, you can connect TradingView to your exchange’s API which will allow you to trade directly on TradingView.

TradingView offers a free plan and multiple paid plans.  The primary limitation with the free plan, as explained in the video tutorial, is that users are limited to overlaying a maximum of 3 indicators on any particular chart.

At first this may not seem like a big deal but if you’re planning on doing any serious technical analysis (TA) at all, 3 indicators will just not be enough.

That being said, if you’re serious about trading stocks, currencies or cryptocurrencies, one of the paid plans will definitely be worth it.  If you’re interested, you can take a look the different TradingView plans available.

Remember, this article and the video above should not be considered financial advice but, rather, software advice.

The tutorial video above provides users with a walkthrough of using most of the basic charting features available on TradingView.

TradingView Features Covered Include:

  • Viewing different chart types
  • Modifying the time scale of candle sticks
  • Adding indicators
  • Customizing indicators
  • Saving indicator templates
  • Customizing time and price scales
  • Using drawing tools for technical analysis
  • Saving charts with drawing tools added
  • Creating price alerts

After viewing the video tutorial above, you should be comfortable using TradingView to view stock, fiat and cryptocurrency prices.
