How to open a TradingView subscription

To get started using Tradingview. Head over to the TradingView membership page.

TradingView offers four subscription or membership options. Each is charged on a monthly or yearly basis. The best value is offered by investing in an annual plan. Annual plans are 16% cheaper than the monthly equivalent. So if you know you will be using TradingView for an extended period. It’s definitely worth going with the annual TradingView subscription.

Simply choose the plan options that suit your needs. In the following section I will provide details about the differences between each TradingView membership option:
