Organizing Your Trades in TradingView
How I use folders, shortcuts, and more to organize, prepare, and to keep me sane.
Hello satoshi snipers!
This is one of the last posts (for a while) as I’m going to be spending a bit more time building some software that I’ve been meaning to put together and I’ve got that itch and I have to scratch it!
Consequently, I’ve made opened up everything and made it all free! So, hit up the Trading Library and good luck to your studies! There’s profit to be made and if I can do it then you can do it too.
But, before I go I wanted to share a few simple but effective tips on setting up your trades in TradingView: Shortcut keys and using Folders / Layers.
These are two simple ways to maximize your performance as well as to prepare you for your trades. It seems obvious but I didn’t really start learning them until much later in my process — I wish I had started using them more consistently, sooner.
By simply creating a “group of drawings” you can more easily manage trades:
You can move your work in layers so that you can get the most visibility on your charts; just drag-and-drop and you should be fine. You can “lock” or make them "visible” / “invisible” for greater clarity.
I have 3 main folders:
Day Trades — Where I setup my trades for the day or the week, shorter timeframes like 1min to 15min where I execute.
Meta Analysis — High level context to establish direction. I’ll use larger timeframes and plot the courses over weeks if not months.
Extras — I had a folder for content related to the vlog and other miscellaneous technical analysis or exploratory charts that I was messing with.
Simple yet powerful organization goes a long way! Now, if you can add in some powerful shortcuts keys, you’re cooking with real fire!
Here are all of the shortcuts that are currently available in TradingView — I’ve copied them here and I’ve even printed these out as well as I started learning.
There is a direct and powerful relationship between your (growing) mastery of your toolset and the outcomes of your trades. So, it’s worth the study.
