Popular charting platform TradingView today announced a new feature called Timelines, which a press release says will help users better understand the companies they’re interested in.
“If you don’t follow industry news on a daily basis, there is no easy way to quickly get a handle on a company’s long history and business. Right now, you have to dig through encyclopedic records and then try to tie it all together, “said James Maddison, Head of TradingView UK, adding,” Timelines changes that by allowing you to scan across years of company history in the blink of an eye. “
Maddison stated that timelines will allow users to quickly locate key events in the company’s history that caused significant moves in stock and share prices. This information is intended to help investors build their strategies and provide a way to better understand the company and its performance over time.
The first publicly traded company to have its own timeline for TradingView will be Tesla – an unsurprising choice considering the company’s stock is the most seen on the platform in 2020, followed closely by Bitcoin. The new function is expected to be introduced “next year”.
“What a year it was. The world was chaotic and that was where people saw opportunities, ”said Maddison. “Of course we are only at the beginning of this movement which we believe will put market participation at the heart of British life.”
According to the announcement, the platform’s user base doubled in 2020, reaching over 130 million registered accounts – including 500,000 British – as that growth was “partially driven by the lockdown trading boom”.
