Changing TradingView multiple charts parameters

Once you’ve decided on your preferred chart layout. Its possible to change the individual chart parameters. Any chart setting can be customized for you own needs as you would any chart.

To change an individual chart parameter. First, highlight the chart you want to change. The chart will appear with a blue highlight box around it. As long as that chart remains highlighted any parameter changes (for example changing timeframe, adding indicators etc) you make within the layout interface will apply to that chart only.

Note: I do notice that when you have multiple charts in the one layout. Adding indicators to any chart can take a minute to load.

Highlight the chart you want to edit then customize from the platform interface menus. In the example above I have added and removed indicators from each of the charts – multi chart TradingView – Tradingview chart layout

As you can see from the example above using TradingView multiple charts functions produces a beautifully chart setup. Its well organized still easy to read despite multiple charts.

Sync on all charts allows users to synchronize one or all of these parameters.

The feature allows users to simultaneously interact with all charts in the one layout.

To Sync any parameter simply select and ensure it is highlighted blue. Below is a brief summary of what sync each of these parameters does:

Symbol – Sync’s all charts in the chart layout to the same ticker symbol or instrument. For example if you change the ticker symbol of one chart. All charts change to that symbol (See chart image below).

How to get tradingview multiple charts free

If you have the tradingview free version but still want to have some multichart capability. It’s possible to build a multi chart screen layout without an upgraded plan.

In this section I will offer two alternative methods for building a multi chart tradingview layout:

Method 1: Use Keyboard short cuts and drag and drop windows into position.

Method 2: Using Chrome extension

Setting up a multi chart layout using either of these methods does NOT allow all the features available with an upgraded tradingview subscription. Things like syncing drawings, time, intervals etc. Both these methods are bit clumsy in my opinion, nor as professional and layout can’t be saved. Its also inconvenient to have to setup your workspace every time you start your machine up. If you are serious about your trading. Then you really want to get an upgraded tradingview subscription.
