TradingView, a global social network for traders covering the equity and foreign exchange markets, has undergone a newly expanded collaboration with multi-asset brokerage OANDA, creating a new connection with the broker’s API. Now all traders can log into their OANDA accounts and trade through the TradingView platform.
The development follows after last month’s expanded partnership with Forex.com and its parent group GAIN Capital Holdings, that yielded similar benefits for users in the form of an integrated trading terminal and other suites of tools. GAIN Capital Holdings had previously launched a deal with TradingView to provide its customers with access to the widely acclaimed advanced web-based charting solution.
TradingView and OANDA previously agreed to an upgrade of the broker’s desktop trading platform last year, when OANDA integrated TradingView’s charting solution into its own Java-based fxTrade desktop platform. This culminated in the use of an entirely new interface and charting module that is one of the more widely utilized in the industry.
While the previous iteration of the agreement between OANDA and TradingView influenced only the charting tools, today’s development marks a more substantiated partnership between OANDA and TradingView. It includes the integration of OANDA into the TradingView platform as a supported broker in the trading panel, enabling all users to trade through OANDA without leaving the site. The deal is the second marquee expansion for TradingView in the past 30 days, as it continues to increase the number of supported brokers on its platform.

TradingView’s charting 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 – it’s also one of the largest social network for traders presently.
Stan Bokov, co-founder and Chief Operating Officer (COO) of TradingView, commented in an exclusive statement to Finance Magnates: “TradingView’s mission is to provide a safe and transparent place for regular traders to discuss potentially profitable ideas, as well as give them as many tools as possible to make trading easier.”
“Today we are excited to announce a partnership with OANDA, one of the largest and most respected brands in the industry. Now our users can log into their OANDA accounts and trade without leaving TradingView, thus benefiting from the constant flow of ideas and the community,” he added.
“At OANDA, we constantly strive to empower our clients to become successful self-directed traders, whether it’s through our award-winning education resources, up-to-the-minute market commentary or cutting-edge technology. In addition, we’re equally committed to providing access to state-of-the-art trading tools and platforms such as TradingView, which offers one of the most impressive web-based charting packages available today,” explained Vatsa Narasimha, President and Chief Executive Officer, OANDA Global Corporation.
“Thanks to our ongoing partnership with TradingView, our clients can now trade global market indices, commodities, treasuries, precious metals and currencies directly from tradingview.com charts, enabling them to capture opportunities in the markets quickly and easily available on one of the world’s fastest platforms,” Narasimha continued.
