TradingView, a retail charting tool and a trading platform in one, said on Thursday it has launched beta tasting trading through Canada-based forex brokerage group Oanda. The beta testing will be among a closed group of volunteer traders. The platform is available to Oanda clients from the US, Canada, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, and Indonesia, while those using New European and Australian accounts, as well as Japanese accounts are currently not supported.
TradingView said it is recruiting testers and is still accepting applications from volunteers.
Oanda offers trading in forex, CFDs, and precious metals via the trading platforms MetaTrader4 (MT4) and Protrader Multi-Connect (PTMC), as well as its own propriety fxTrade trading platforms. Earlier this year, the broker integrated TradingView’s charting and trading solutions to fxTrade, making available to its clients some 60 pre-built technical indicators.
Earlier this week, TradingView also announced it has launched live trading through US forex giant Forex Capital Markets (FXCM)x, just two months after starting beta testing. It later said, starting 15 August, real-time contracts for difference (СFD) data from FXCM will be available only to FXCM account holders. To access that kind of data, traders need to verify their accounts.
TradingView features customizable charts, basic and advanced ones alike, as well as more than 50 drawing tools that can be used for understanding and analyzing the financial markets. It is web-based and uses HTML5 charts. Its charts work on all browser and operating systems. The platform provides free access to data about a wide range of trading instruments, among which forex, Bitcoin, stocks, futures, all major indices, and CFDs.
