Why does Tradingview show me different information than crypto-signal?
There are a number of reasons why the information crypto-signal provides could be different from tradingview and the truth is we have no way to be 100% certain of why the differences exist. Below are some things that affect the indicators that may differ between crypto-signal and tradingview.
tradingview will have more historical data and for some indicators this can make a big difference.
tradingview uses a rolling 15 minute timeframe which means that the data they are analyzing can be more recent than ours by a factor of minutes or hours depending on what candlestick timeframe you are using.
tradingview may collect data in a way that means the timeperiods we have may not line up with theirs, which can have an effect on the analysis. This seems unlikely to us, but stranger things have happened.
So if it doesn't match Tradingview how do you know your information is accurate?
Underpinning crypto-signal for most of our technical analysis is TA-Lib which is an open source technical analysis project started in 1999. This project has been used in a rather large number of technical analysis projects over the last two decades and is one of the most trusted open source libraries for analyzing candlestick data.
I am not your financial adviser, nor is this tool. Use this program as an educational tool, and nothing more. None of the contributors to this project are liable for any losses you may incur. Be wise and always do your own research.
We recommend you begin by learning the core principles used in traditional asset classes since they are less volatile & apply your knowledge in simulated trading before liquidating your dreams.
