Remove the candles border

This isn't mandatory at all.
Some of our indicators are coloring the candles based on the trend state.
Removing the native border coloring gives a much better looking display.

Uncheck candles border settings

The candles are displayed nicely and with clear colors For a LONG:

  • below the entry price is dark green
  • above the entry price is light green

For a SHORT:

  • above the entry price is dark red
  • below the entry price is light red


Candles without border on tradingview look nicer

Scaling issues

There is nothing we can do to prevent that, but we know that TradingView could release a feature soon to prevent this scaling "issue" from happening.
It might only happen the first time you add the indicator to your chart.

The good news 👍: it could be solved in 2 simple steps only.
- Step 1: right click on the right price scale
- Step 2: Choose Auto (Fits Data to screen only)
We provide below some guidance to solve this side-effect.

What if the indicator displays a red error

Issue when indicator is loading

Many of our scripts contain thousands of lines of codes and might take a bit of time to get executed the first time you'll add them to your chart(s).
If your internet network is not fast enough or there are some latencies, you might get the issue as shown on the left image.

To work around that on both Desktop and Mobile, you'll either need to :
- Click on the 👁️‍🗨️ (eye icon)
- or refresh the whole page (F5/Refresh icon on Desktop and the usual way to refresh a page on your mobile device)

What if the indicator displays a calcul timeout error

TradingView timeout

Same as described just above.
Click on the 👁️‍🗨️ (eye icon)
- or refresh the whole page (F5/Refresh icon on Desktop and the usual way to refresh a page on your mobile device)

Hiding your charts settings when sharing

Hiding indicators aguments/values

If you become a subscriber you will be given a private subscription key, We highly recommend changing your chart settings through.

Settings > Status Line > Indicator Arguments
and 'unchecking' the Indicator arguments checkbox. This will hide your product key from the public when posting new ideas or indicators within TradingView.

How to delete an indicator

Delete indicator

Click on the small (x) icon

Alerts not firing?

TradingView alerts are linked to instances of chart/resolution + indicator settings.
Each time you edit the settings of an indicator on your chart, a new instance is created.
Thus your alerts still link to the old settings until they are edited (updated) or recreated.

🔔 Please make sure you deleted the previous alerts and created new ones every time we're sending an indicator update.

🔶 To change existing alerts, best do a reload of the TradingView tab first (Ctrl + Shift + R).
Then select "Edit" on the alert and select the new version of the indicator settings in the "Condition" dropdown.
Ensure triggers are correct and the expiration time well into the future and hit save, best wait a few seconds before editing the next alert.

Once you are done, reload your TradingView tab again and double check your alerts.

How to apply the exchange timezone on your chart?

Is it needed?

Yes! if you use hourly filters from our Algorithm Builders or your own script.
By default, TradingView scripts refer to the exchange timezone.
To compare apple to apple, we recommend setting your chart with the Exchange timezone.

To change the chart’s time zone, we first need to open the instrument settings window.
One way to do so is by clicking on the gear icon, which displays to the right of the instrument’s name on the chart.
TradingView configure symbole timezone

In the settings window that this opens we select the ‘Timezone/Sessions’ tab. There we use the pull-down menu of the ‘Time Zone’ option to set the chart’s time zone to "Exchange"
  TradingView configure symbole timezone to Exchange

An alternative way of doing it is to use the clock/date range option below your chart.

TradingView configure timezone using the date range menu

Tradingview timezone change to exchange using the date range menu
