TradingView adds Federal Reserve economic data
Traders can now take advantage of data from the Federal Reserve System on TradingView.
Federal Reserve data comprise over 815,000 time series from 107 sources. Although some of this data were already available to TradingView users, the number has now increased to 1,109 popular episodes.
All you need to do is use the “FRED:” prefix in the symbol search. And if you suddenly find that you are missing instruments, contact TradingView and they promise to definitely add these instruments.
TradingView has been updating and enhancing the capabilities of its platform regularly. For instance, earlier in July, TradingView added a currency conversion feature: a new setting that enhances the analysis of the price chart for various assets. Now, traders can quickly assess the exchange rate difference of the currencies of interest or see the share price in a more familiar currency.
To change the currency on the chart, you just need to click on the button displaying the scale currency and then select the currency you are interested in from the drop-down list.
TradingView is constantly improving its tools. For instance, in May, TradingView introduced Pine Tables – a new functionality that enables traders to present data in a way that has never been possible before.
Tables are objects that can be used to position information in specific and fixed locations in a script’s visual space. Contrary to all other plots or objects drawn in Pine, tables are not anchored to specific bars: they float in a script’s space, whether in overlay or pane mode, in studies or strategies, independently of the chart bars being viewed or the zoom factor used.
