Do not invest more money than you can afford to lose.
TradingView, an online charting tool and a trading platform in one, said on Thursday it has added an option that allows users to publish pine indicators with protected source code. The feature lets users share knowledge and protect intellectual property at the same time, without the source code being visible to others.
The indicators are available to all TradingView users in the public Script Library. To make an indicator protected, traders need to select the “Protected Script” option in the script publication window.
TradingView provides a large set of prebuilt indicators using Pine scripting language that it started offering in late 2013.
TradingView is a web-based platform that uses HTML5 charts and work on all browsers and operating systems. It provides free access to data about a wide range of trading instruments, among which forex, Bitcoin, stocks, futures, all major indices, and contracts for difference (CFDs). The platform 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.
In May 2016, the platform started offering live trading in forex and contracts for difference (CFDs), with Forex Capital Markets, or FXCM, as the first supported broker. Recently, the platform also added trading in stocks to its offering via US equities broker DriveWealth. TradingView also launched beta testing trading through Canada-based forex broker Oanda.
