REVIEW: Navigating markets with TradingView

TradingView is one of the more talked about charting platforms for technical analysis and research for novice investors, trading beginners and active traders. It works as a web-based version on any device and comes in addition to a separate app for iOS and Android.

The biggest problem with deciding on what platform to use is that there is a lot of competition out there among charting platform providers.

A good charting platform will be intuitive and easy to use. It will be clean, it will be fast, it will be reliable, and it will be powerful. A great charting platform will be all of that and more – which TradingView’s social networking component has checked an extra box with.

The TradingView homepage is clean, fuss free and minimalistic. A modern layout makes the interface look sleek and professional, which immediately strips away any insecurity you may have about using it. Colours are easy on the eyes, and the navigation seemed intuitive enough, even for someone who’s not exactly a tech wizard.

Signing up

Signing up for TradingView was a breeze. All you need to do is provide some basic information like your email address, create a username and password. No long forms or complicated verifications, which was a relief. The whole process took just a couple of minutes, and its straightforwardness is another huge plus point.
