Basic account (free)
Pro account
Pro + account
Premium account
Depending on the needs of personal use, each person has different account options.

What is tradingview
2.1. Free account (Basic)
With Basic (free) account, you will have to accept being bothered by ads, although they are not too annoying.

In fairness, the TradingView offers a lot of features for the free version and if you don't have too many needs to use the chart for daily analysis, use multiple indicators at once or without a need. Using TradingView on many devices at the same time, Basic account is quite enough for your needs.

2.2. Premium account (Pro, Pro + and Premium)
If you have a serious work plan and really need more advanced features of TradingView for daily trading, you should upgrade to a premium account.

So what are the advantages of tradingView account? Are they worthy of upgrading?

For premium accounts from low to high, Pro, Pro + and Premium, most of them are the same in features. The difference is that in higher-paying accounts, those features will be upgraded.

You will feel markedly convenient when you have just switched from Basic to premium accounts. For example:

With Basic account, you can only see 1 chart, but with Premium version, you can view 8 charts with the same chart.
With Basic and Pro accounts, you can only log in one device at a time, while the Premium version is 5.
For Basic version, you are only allowed to save 1 chart, while the Premium version allows you to save unlimitedly.
With Basic version, you can only use 3 indicators on each chart, with Premium version is 25.

With the price of the Pro version paid monthly at $ 14.95 (if paid yearly it would be only $ 12.95), this is a price that can be said to be very accessible to most.

In this area, right clicking will bring up a customized table for the chart.

instructions on how to use
1. You see the Reset Chart button. This is a button that helps you bring your chart back to the present time and doesn't erase the tools or indicators you gave earlier.

Useful feature for you when you are dragging a chart to the past too far and do not want to pull back to the current price.

2. Next is the Add alert function: This is the function on the Top Toolbar

This feature will allow you to add an alert at the exact price you want, with a variety of settings.

What is one thing that shows the difference between TradingView's charting tools and brokers? That is the care and careful investment in terms of features as well as user experience.

For example, for XAUUSD pairs, you can set up the following: Select the price X = 1480.50, Y = 1501.50

Receive warnings when prices cut through X.

Also in the settings, you can personalize any display on the chart such as: Border color, candle color, change the background, align the top margin, bottom margin ...

TradingView gives you the ability to customize almost everything, you should take advantage of that to create a chart style according to personal preferences, because you will have to look at it, use it everyday. So why not make it more suitable for you?

4. Add another feature, which is the REMOVAL OF DRAWING TOOLS & REMOVAL OF INDICATORS

Actually this feature is on the Left Toolbar (the trash icon)

When you implement your analytical methods, of course you will draw quite a lot on the chart.

For example, if you draw more lines of support and resistance, you draw more price channels, you write annotations on each price area on the chart ... Not to mention you also add the number of indicators above.

At that time, if you want to start again with a "cleaner" chart, you want to remove the lines that were drawn earlier, of course if you have to delete them one by one, it will take you a lot of time and cause annoyed.

TradingView understands that, so it offers this feature for you.

5. There are also some other features such as adding notes or adding charts to the watch list.
