TradingView

3Commas is a flexible tool for customizing your trading strategy but how exactly is this flexibility achieved?
One of the elements that provide the most accurate settings for trading is TradingView's custom signals

TradingView is the largest technical analysis platform in the space. Beginners can take advantage of TradingView's extensive functionality, which includes more than 100 indicators for the best analysis of asset price behavior, as well as the ability to test trading strategies. The platform allows advanced users to create custom indicators and signals.

How do custom TV signals work?

You connect the bot to one or more indicators of your choice, and the bot starts to receive alerts and open trades.

As you may have guessed, TradingView includes many tools, which can be used as a base for the signals. The signals themselves can be one-time or repetitive (“every-time”).

An example of the one-time signal use would be opening a trade at a breakout/retest of the resistance level.

Example

In the chart below, we see the BNB / USDT trading pair on the Binance exchange. The formed flat triangle is indicating an upcoming breakout. As we know, entering at a breakout is not the best strategy, while buying at a retest is the choice of champions. To buy at a retest, we use the "down-crossing" condition on TV and wait for a retest of the blue resistance line, which turns into support upon breakout.

Repeating signals can be used to increase a position at a dynamic support level when the asset price's value changes over time.

For example, in the chart below, you can see the formation of a triangle. You can choose to add to your position each time a candle touches the white resistance line. This will allow you to put a tight stop-loss and maximize the profit ratio versus possible losses.

After you set everything up, your 3Commas bot will start receiving signals from TradingView and bringing profits.
