Trading Chart

Our charting tool is Trading View [https://www.tradingview.com/] and it has a great deal of functionality. Below are some of the basic functions users should be aware of

  1. Users can look at the historical data of trades up to the past 24 hours in 5 min, 15 min, 30 min, 1h, and 3h intervals.
  2. There are many chart types provided to you for example line graphs and the more popular and default: candle sticks. To change the chart type, look for the icon in the header of the tool bar.
  3. The gear icon in the header is your settings which are mostly aesthetic.
  4. Users can undo or redo any changes they’ve made to the chart.
  5. Click this button to increase the size of the chart.
  6. On the upper right-hand corner the user may screenshot their current view and a dialog will reveal a link to their chart hosted by Trading View (which will include your drawings if you’ve made any).
  7. In the footer you can change how to view the y-axis: auto, log and gear icon for more settings. Hovering over a specific candlestick vertical will reveal the open (O), high (H), low (L), close (C) and volume at that point. If you’re on a line chart it will show only the price and volume.
