APPLICATION

Study templates are a very useful feature of tradingview charts. Essentially they are a way of grouping several studies or indicators together into a single package. That package can then be applied to any chart. Tradingview comes with 6 study templates pre enabled. The six standard study templates are; Bill Williams' 3 Lines, Displaced EMA, MA Exp Ribbon, Oscillators, Swing Trading and Volume Based. Users can then also create their own and save them to their own database.

This is an example of a CORN chart utilizing the Oscillator Study Template. The Oscillator Study Template employs Basic Volume plus three oscillating indicators; The Stochastic RSI, RSI and CCI.

Here is the same CORN chart but with the Bill Williams' 3 Lines Study Template applied. This Study Template employs Basic Volume as well as 3 Moving Averages of varying length.


HOW TO USE IN TRADINGVIEW
