A Beginner’s Guide to TradingView
TradingView is a browser-based charting platform and screener for cryptocurrencies and other financial assets. Its charting tools are also available to use natively in Binance’s trading UI. Apart from charting, you can also share your trading strategies and live stream your analysis. When it comes to free options, TradingView is a powerful tool for all experience levels. The basic features should be enough for most traders. However, be careful browsing through other users’ ideas and streams. It’s important to filter out the information that adds value to your strategy rather than blindly following others.

A Beginner’s Guide to TradingView
About Lesson

If you’ve never used charting tools before, TradingView can look a bit confusing. Let’s break it down a bit first.

Toolbar 1

This toolbar contains all the charting and drawing tools usable directly in the chart area. From simple lines to long/short positions, there’s a lot to explore. You can also right-click each tool to see an extended selection. Some are more advanced than others, but the default lineup contains enough basics to get started.

Toolbar 2

Here you’ll find options to change the look of the chart. You can choose between candlesticks, line graphs, area graphs, and more. There’s also a search bar to the left to change the asset displayed. Another tool to note is the [Indicators & Strategies] button to insert premade analysis patterns like a moving average.

Toolbar 3

TradingView doesn’t offer a brokerage service, but you can trade within the website using the [Trading Panel] tab. You’ll find a list of partners you can exchange with if you already have an open account with them. You can also backtest your strategies using the [Strategy Tester] function. 

Toolbar 4

This section mainly covers news and TradingView’s social elements. You can customize your watchlist, private message other users, explore Ideas and Streams, and access a personalized calendar. If you need to find any data, lists, or information, this is the area to visit.

Chart area

When you change the asset you’re looking at, use any tools, or place indicators, you’ll find them displayed in the main chart area. You can also customize almost everything you see, which we’ll cover in the next section.
