It's our goal to provide a place where traders, investors, educators and market enthusiasts can create and share trading ideas presented on interactive stock, FX, futures and index charts. We have a few guidelines to make it as enjoyable as possible for everyone.
Your idea should add value. Provide insight into something, or pose questions about a specific symbol – the idea can be regarding recent news, analysis methods, market predictions, or trade setups.
Publishing means sharing your chart and trading idea with the financial web and the investing community. A published idea needs to be detailed and descriptive in order to be meaningful to other people.
The best ideas are placed in the Suggested tab, where they receive extra exposure. All suggested ideas are hand-picked by our editorial team based on a number of criteria. We have a dedicated group of people who review every idea published every day to find the most interesting and informative ideas that will be helpful to other members.
Following below suggestions will help get your ideas suggested:
In short, the more understandable and interesting your ideas are, the more you’ll gain respect of others and get discovered by the financial community. We’ll do our best to help showcase good ideas.
Some authors that we recommend get marked as Suggested, and their ideas get posted to the Suggested category automatically. The basis for recommending authors is multiple factors, which include a large number of interesting ideas. A suggested author has a corresponding badge in their profile.
In effort to make TradingView more useful to a larger number of users, moderators have the right to hide ideas with bad descriptions or not informative from the front page and the gallery. We are NOT limiting any ways of publishing or using TradingView charts. You can still create and publish any kind of charts; your profile and Activity Stream will still show all created charts.
Moderators are active members of the TradingView community who earned trust from other members. They have a desire to help others members and maintain a high quality of published content. Moderators decide which ideas become Suggested and pick the Idea of the Day.
TradingView community is well-known for highly intelligent ideas and mutual respect, so moderators don't usually delete content. Instead their primary job is to categorize it, so it's easy to find and analyze. However, inappropriate comments, chat messages or unhelpful ideas are swiftly removed.
Promoting personal links on tradingview published charts is partially allowed. However our main goal is to provide useful content to traders, and thus we have a clear guideline for promoting your personal links:
Whether you agree or disagree with ideas, be courteous and respectful. Treat others the way you’d like to be treated.
Currently we only support English, so we ask you to only use English when communicating on TradingView even if it's not your first language (this is a perfect chance to practice!). It's very important for the community that you respect other people's ideas, whether in the comments, or in the chat. In the near future we hope to add other language support, but since we don't have enough resources - let's collaborate in English. Use of other languages will be stopped by moderators for now.
The very nature of working with markets means you’ll be wrong often, and that’s ok. Trading is not about being right or wrong the market, or predicting where the market is headed in the next moment, hour, day or week. Trading is nothing more than a probabilistic endeavor, and a trade is nothing more than a statistical data point.
The point of TradingView is to share not only the good picks, but also the bad ones, and analyze what went wrong with help from others. Analyzing and learning from your mistakes is the best way to help yourself, and earn respect from others. Running a trading journal that documents your trades is a very good idea. Our goal is sharing of knowledge and transparency, that’s why published ideas become part of the common community knowledge and cannot be deleted. We encourage you to publish ideas with detailed and well-founded arguments and avoid posting random trades with little explanation. This is the key difference between TradingView and other trades-sharing resources.
