I use charting that is independent of the platform I execute trades on. I mostly use Tradingview for my chart analyses. As an alternative, you can also use platforms like Investing.com, Metatrader, or CTrader. However, to use these last two platforms you will at least need to open a demo account at a broker that offers the platform and the usage of these demo accounts is often limited in time.
I recommend both Investing.com as well as Tradingview, because:
- Both are free and easy to get started.
- Both have excellent paid upgrades for the more demanding trader.
- Both are independent resources.
- Both offer charting, news, economic calendars, screeners, trading ideas, a trading community, all in one place.
- Both offer tools on a wide variety of instruments, like stocks, forex, bonds, ETFs, mutual funds, commodities, precious metals, and cryptocurrencies.
- Tradingview even offers a replay function that will let you backtest your strategies.
In one word: both are excellent in my opinion.
If you are considering Tradingview, then please use one of my affiliate links.
