Live streams FAQ

Can we publish from broadcasting software like OBS, Streamlabs, and others?

Yes you can stream to TradingView with most external software tools. Create your stream and at set-up select External Streaming software. Finish the steps to your live stream and once completed you will be given the details you need including a stream key to begin live streaming.

Do we need a disclaimer or risk warning?

Be as clear as possible about what your stream covers. Be transparent in the title and description about what you’re showing whether it’s live trading or educational material. If you’re streaming as a brokerage, bank, or financial professional you may want to follow the guidelines of your company and include the necessary disclaimers.

Can I play music or show other videos or images on my live stream?

Yes you can build out a live stream that shows all kinds of things you’re looking at whether it’s charts, news articles or other forms of content. But please be aware that copyrighted material is not allowed. You should have the permission of everything that you share or talk about. We will remove streams that break these rules.

Can we advertise on the live stream?

Live streams were created to help the trading and investing community. We expect all live streamers to share valuable, entertaining or educational content rather than solicitations or advertisements. Live streams currently follow our existing House Rules: https://www.tradingview.com/house-rules/
