How DTD Charts Compare to TradingView

 

DTD charts are based on TradingView’s software, a popular third-party service that offers a full suite of charting tools and features to help users analyze and trade the markets. To provide our members with a great experience, we have tailored features of this existing software to meet the standards, requests, and expectations of the traders who helped design them.


Our members can use our charts within the same browser window as our chatroom and popular scanners, stock quotes, news, and watchlist widgets. This helps reduce the number of separate platforms, apps, and market data subscriptions that traders need.


Our charts offer a mix of features that are available to Pro+ and Premium members at TradingView. Key features included are:

  • Unlimited charts per browser window
  • Unlimited indicators per chart
  • Up to 6 windows per chatroom layout
  • Real-time US market data for sub-second price data updates
  • 10-,15-, and 24-second timeframe charts
  • Volume profile indicators
  • The ability to save custom chart and indicator templates
  • A linkable watchlist widget per each chatroom window
  • Filtering out of ADF Orders for cleaner charts
