TradingView features 

As you log in to ThinkTrader Web, you will immediately get access to TradingView’s charting interface. Here are the key components and features that TradingView offers. 

Chart types 

TradingView’s sleek chart windows are where you’ll spend most of your time analysing the markets. The chart window displays price movements in your chosen chart type.

Time frames 

TradingView offers a versatile range of time frames, allowing traders to analyse market trends and patterns over various periods. Understanding these time frames effectively is crucial for both short- and long-term trading strategies. 

Located at the top of the TradingView chart window, click the button to open a dropdown menu for different time frames. This feature allows for quick and easy switching between various periods. TradingView offers a variety of options that you can maximise for better decision making. 

  • 1 minute 
  • 5 minutes 
  • 10 minutes 
  • 15 minutes 
  • 30 minutes 
  • 1 hour 
  • 4 hours 
  • 1 day  
  • 1 week 
  • 1 month 

The choice of time frame should align with your trading style and strategy. Short-term traders might prefer minute or hourly charts for quick trades, while long-term traders may opt for daily or weekly charts to understand longer-term trends. 


Drawing tools 



Situated at the side of the chart window, this toolbar contains an extensive set of drawing tools. These tools are crucial for chart mark-ups, trend analysis, and pattern identification. Here's an overview of what you can expect and how to use them: 

Located on the left side of the chart window, the side toolbar features various icons. Each icon represents a different drawing tool or function. 

Types of drawing tools available on ThinkTrader Web: 

  • Trend lines and arrows - essential for identifying and marking trend directions 
  • Geometric shapes - useful for highlighting key chart areas or patterns like triangles, rectangles, and circles 
  • Fibonacci tools - these include retracement, extension tools, and circles for understanding potential support and resistance levels 
  • Drawing tools - text and emoticons for adding notes directly on your chart 
  • Customisation - Each tool comes with customisation options. Right-click on a drawn object to change the colour, thickness, and style 

All your drawn elements can be easily edited, moved, or deleted. You can also clone or lock them in place for more detailed analysis. Traders often practice drawing trend lines to connect significant highs and lows and use geometric shapes to identify chart patterns. 


Indicators and Strategies 



TradingView boasts a comprehensive range of powerful technical indicators and strategies. Traders consider indicators as vital tools that offer deep insights into market trends and potential trading opportunities.  

To access the list of indicators, click on the ‘Indicators’ button located at the top toolbar. This will open a window showcasing a wide range of available indicators. 

Types of indicators available: 

  • Trend indicators - such as Moving Averages, Bollinger Bands, and MACD help identify the market trend 
  • Momentum indicators – such as the RSI and Stochastic Oscillator indicate overbought or oversold conditions 
  • Volume indicators – such as Volume Oscillator and On-Balance Volume provide insights into trading volume and market strength 
  • Volatility indicators – such as ATR and Bollinger Bands give an idea about market volatility 

To apply an indicator, simply select your desired indicator from the list. You can customise its parameters and appearance according to your trading style. 

TradingView also allows multiple indicators to be applied on the same chart. This offers a more comprehensive analysis to validate trading signals. Once you've set up an indicator, you can save these settings for future use, ensuring consistency in your analysis. 

Bottom toolbar 

The bottom toolbar on TradingView offers multiple features essential for market analysis. 

Time scale adjustments – this feature lets you modify the time scale of the chart, which is useful for viewing market movements over different periods. This can range from minute-by-minute changes to broader historical trends.

Date range selection: Easily select and view a specific date range on your chart. This is useful for focusing on a particular period of interest, like post-announcement effects or during significant economic events.

Multi-chart display


TradingView on ThinkTrader Web offers a multi-chart display feature that allows traders to simultaneously monitor up to 8 different instruments.

Click the layout button located on the top toolbar to open a dropdown menu with options of different chart layouts. These range from a single chart view to multiple chart layouts, allowing you to view up to 8 charts simultaneously.

To set up a multi-chart display, choose your preferred layout, depending on how many markets you wish to track at once. You can display different instruments or timeframes on each chart so you can compare multiple markets or strategies in real-time.

Within the multi-chart layout, each chart can be customised independently. Apply different indicators, drawing tools, and timeframes to each chart based on your trading strategy. This flexibility is perfect for traders who monitor correlations between different instruments or need to keep an eye on various segments of the market simultaneously.

However, TradingView also offers the convenience of synchronisation. You can sync tools, drawings, and indicators across all charts in your layout. This ensures consistency in your analysis and saves time, especially when comparing similar markets.
