Just a few days after launching live trading through Gain Capital’s retail brokerage Forex.com, TradingView, the online charting tools developer and social trading platform announced, it has launched live trading through another leading US forex broker – Oanda.
This happens around 10 months after the start of the beta testing trading phase for volunteer traders.
Now trading is available for all TradingView users who have a live or a demo account with Oanda.
First one logs into TradingView, goes to the Trading Panel and there selects Oanda as a broker. From there one can follow the instructions provided by TradingView.
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.
Currently TradingView has around 1.5 million members who discuss trading ideas in real time.
Oanda is a Canadian corporation that 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. It operates globally and, after the exit of FXCM from the US market, has become the second-largest forex broker in terms of client assets.
