UNIQUE INTERBANK RATES
The majority of other information websites display prices of a single source, most of the time from one retail broker-dealer.
At FXStreet traders get interbank rates coming from the systematic selection of data providers that deliver millions of updates per day.
Interbank quotes are essential for realistic valuations, for instance comparison between interbank and a particular broker-dealer's rates; calculating risk exposure; analyzing performance; and justifying trades since price-driven indicators are much more reliable when using interbank rates.
Our rates are provided by Teletrader, worldwide financial information provider to institutions like banks, brokers and stock exchanges.
1. CHART FEATURES
1.1. Over 1500 assets
You can choose between 1500 different assets: all Forex crosses (and their reverse too - see below), but also main commodities and indices. How to select your asset
You can also directly type the asset in the search asset field. Note that you must put a slash between the two currencies of the pair. For example: USD/JPY and not USDJPY. How to type your asset
We all know EUR/USD...but do you know USD/EUR? "It does not exist" would be the first answer. Wrong! All currency crosses exist in both direction...and they are available on our interactive chart!. How to find reverse crosses
1.2. Time frames: 22 options
You can display the asset rates in 22 different time frames: Tick-by-tick (the most precise data), Intraday (18 time frames available, from 1 to 720 minutes - that is 12 hours), Daily, Weekly, Monthly. How to select the time frame
1.3. Extensive historic data
On our charts you can display historic data of 250 periods (250 minutes, hours or days), a valuable data you get for free here! You can use this history to make price behavior studies. How to show more historic data? Use the zoom-out option. How to zoom out
1.4. Over 70 technical indicators
You can add up to 70 technical indicators to your chart, as Linear Regression, CCI, ADX and many more. How to select technical indicators
2. CHART TYPES
You can choose among 10 chart types: Line, Candlestick, Bar (OHLC), Bar (HLC), Mountain, Histogram, Heikin Ashi, Equivolume, Points and Stair Steps. How to change the chart type
2.1. Unique Chart Types
Heikin Ashi chart helps you detect trend - a feature you will only find on professional platforms. The Heikin-Ashi technique helps you identify a trend more easily and detect trading opportunities. It’s a tool you can use to improve the isolation of trends (cancelling noise on the chart) and predict future prices. This chart type is not considered to be valid to take positions but rather to perform a follow-up of your position. How to change your chart into Heikin Ashi
With Equivolume, you can plot price and volume activity on a single chart, instead of having volume added as an indicator on the side. This tool draws the bars following their traded volume at a precise point in time (the wider the bar, the bigger the volume). That creates a clear visualization of the volume increase or decrease of an asset’s chart. A very handy feature for those strategies that have volume as a key factor. How to change your chart into Equivolume
3. DRAWING TOOLS
You have plenty of options to draw on your charts, from lines (including trend channels) to arrows, going through rectangles, circles and much more. You can also write any text you want on the charts to add your particular notes and comments. Another available option to benefit from is the one that allows to configure the color of each of the drawing you put on the chart, as well as the line weight (thin, regular or bold). How to draw on your chart
3.1. Exclusive drawing tools
Establish profitable opportunities and swing possibilities with it. It’s a technical drawing tool that uses three parallel trendlines to identify levels of support and resistance. It can help you define the price’s future movement range and its medium point. How to add Andrew Pitchfork
Fibonacci Retracements and Arcs
Map out the magnitude of price moves with Retracements and Arcs. These tools let you draw studies about the possible developments of a price based on its previous move. It can be calculated following different mathematical concepts (Fibonacci, Gann…). While retracements are concerned with just the magnitude of moves, Arcs factor both magnitude and time, offering areas of future support or resistance that will move as time progresses. How to add Retracements and Arcs
Linear Regression lines
Determine trend direction with Linear Regression lines: linear regression analyzes two separate variables, price and time, in order to define a single relationship and predict price trends. How to add Regression lines
4. ADVANCED USE
4.1. Compare assets
We offer a tool to compare charts so you can analyze the price history of two assets and analyze relative performance over a period of time. When you click on “Compare”, you can choose the second asset (currency, equity or index). The graph of both assets will be displayed in a same chart, with the percentage of deviation in the left vertical axis. The starting point of both lines is zero. For a clearer view, it’s recommended to choose the “line” chart type. You can edit the color and weight of each currency. How to compare assets
4.2. Automatic signals generators
Our charting platform integrates two tools that automatically generate signals that highlight patterns on your chart as soon as they occur. You will find them under “Add Indicator”.
Candlestick Patterns Recognition Indicators
Our Interactive chart offers you indicators to detect patterns on Japanese Candlesticks (see list of Candlestick Patterns below). It’s a recommended tool for those traders that use Candlesticks to take trading decisions. This tool is very useful to get an immediate notification being displayed on your chart as soon as the pattern occurs. The Japanese candlestick theory establish a series of patterns which are statistically previous to potential change or interruption of trends, a turning point in a current trend, etc.
As always, this type of tool has to be used as an indication of a possible favorable position to be taken, but it’s necessary to combine them with other techniques. Here is the Candlesticks Patterns that our chart will recognize and automatically points: Bearish engulfing, Bulish engulfing, Dark Cloud, Doji, Evening Star, Hammer, Morning Star, Piercing and Shooting Star. How to add a Candlestick Patterns Recognition indicator
Significative line crosses indicators system
Another tool you can use is our significative line crossing systems, including crossing averages, MACD cross and over zero signal. Such as the indicators that detect patterns in Japanese Candlesticks (see above), the correct selection of your parameters on the chart are vital to avoid to be guided in your decisions by misleading signals.
