A professional charting and trading platform, TradingView has onboarded US-listed brokerage firm Interactive Brokers as its latest online trading partner.
Interactive Brokers traders will now have direct access to TradingView from their own accounts, which provides many benefits to users in the form of an integrated trading terminal and other tool suites. With the soft launch, investors will have the ability to trade futures and stocks, with more asset classes launching soon.
To access their new partner, users simply need to go to the TradingView platform’s trading panel to find the Interactive Brokers icon, enter their broker credentials, and start discovering new opportunities, says the company.
The deal is another brand extension for TradingView as it continues to increase the number of brokers supported on its platform.
While some integrations with TradingView only influence charting tools, today’s development marks a more grounded partnership with Interactive Brokers. It includes the integration of Interactive Brokers into the TradingView platform as a supported broker in the trading panel, allowing all users to trade via charts without leaving the site.
TradingView users, who are also brokerage clients of Interactive Brokers, can receive personalized alerts on breaking news, connect with other users, write their thoughts, and spot the most active stocks of the day.
TradingView Lands $3 Billion Valuation
“Interactive Brokers Group, Inc. was founded by current Chairman Thomas Peterffy in 1977. For more than 40 years, Interactive Brokers has been known as the global leader in international asset trading, global research products, and low fees. Today, it has grown into one of the largest securities firms in the world with over $10 billion in consolidated equity. Interactive Brokers (IBKR) is publicly traded on NASDAQ and regulated in over ten Tier 1 jurisdictions, making it a reputable broker,” the statement continued.
Fueled by a boom in cryptocurrency and stock trading by retail investors, TradingView has reached a valuation of $3 billion.
TradingView is a data-driven community of investors ranked among the top 300 websites in the world, powering over 40,000 other websites and providing social media. The company’s approach differs from other social trading networks as it is chart-based with an emphasis on visuals to support investing and provide a common space to view and share trading ideas.
Additionally, TradingView has an online store where users can purchase access to third-party tools. The company’s solution had already grown in popularity in recent years, as it successfully marketed itself as a provider of smooth HTML5 charts that encompass a diverse set of asset classes.
