Interactive Brokers’ traders now have direct access to TradingView

abdelaziz Fathi

Professional charting and trading platform, TradingView has integrated the US-listed brokerage firm Interactive Brokers as the latest online trading partner.

Interactive Brokers traders will now have direct access to TradingView from their own accounts, which yields many benefits for users in the form of an integrated trading terminal and other suites of tools. 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 need just to head over to TradingView platform’s trading panel to find Interactive Brokers’ icon, type in their broker credentials, and start experiencing new opportunities, the company explains.

The deal is yet another marquee expansion for TradingView, as it continues to increase the number of supported brokers on its platform.

While some integrations with TradingView influence only the charting tools, today’s development marks a more substantiated partnership with Interactive Brokers. It includes the integration of Interactive Brokers into the TradingView platform as a supported broker in the trading panel, enabling all users to trade through charts without leaving the site.

TradingView users, who are also Interactive Brokers brokerage customers, can receive customized alerts on breaking news, connect with other users, write down thoughts and scout the most active stocks of the day.

TradingView lands a $3 billion valuation

“Interactive Brokers Group, Inc. was founded by current Chairman Thomas Peterffy in 1977. For over 40 years, Interactive Brokers has been known as the global leader in international asset trading, global research products, as well as low fees. Today, it has grown to become one of the biggest securities firms in the world with over $10 billion in consolidated equity capital. Interactive Brokers (IBKR) is publicly listed at NASDAQ and regulated in more than ten tier-1 jurisdictions, making it a reputable broker,” the statement further reads.

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 investor community, which is ranked among the top 300 websites in the world, powering over 40,000 other websites and providing social networks. The company’s approach differs from other ‎social trading networks because it is chart-based with an emphasis on ‎visuals to support investing and provide communal space to view ‎and share trading ideas.‎

Furthermore, TradingView has a web-store where users can ‎purchase access to third-party tools. The company’s ‎solution had already been rising in popularity in recent ‎years as it has successfully marketed itself as a provider of ‎smooth HTML5 charts that encompass a diverse set of ‎asset classes.‎
