The Binance trading interface contains a robust set of tools and options to help you in your trading analysis. These include:
- Candlestick charts
- Depth charts
- Time intervals
- Drawing tools
- Technical indicators
TradingView allows users to create a customized toolset for technical analysis. Let’s see how to use it on Binance.
The TradingView and trading tools are accessible in the Classic, Advanced, and Full-Screen versions on the Binance trading interface. They offer different, editable layouts and you can easily switch between them at any time.
1. Log in to your Binance account and hover over [Trade]. Click [Spot].
2. Click [TradingView] above the chart to gain full access to the trading tools available and candlestick charts.
You will note that moving averages are already displayed on the chart. You can change their settings by clicking the [Settings] icon. Each moving average is adjusted according to the specified time frame. For example, MA 7 is the moving average over seven candles of your time interval (e.g., 7 hours if you are using a 1H chart or 7 days if it’s a 1D chart).
- MA 7 - Orange
- MA 25 - Purple
- MA 99 - Cyan
[Depth] provides a visual representation of unfilled buy/sell orders on the order book.
Candlestick charts are a graphical representation of the price movements of an asset. The timeframe of each candlestick is customizable and can represent a given period. Each candlestick contains the open price/close price/high price/low price, along with the highest and lowest price in the period.
