LiveCharts crypto charts
If you look at the LiveCharts Home page, there is no mention of cryptocurrencies. The day trading charts provider, however, offers access to 15 cryptocurrency charts at the time of writing, including Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), Ripple (XRP), Cardano (ADA), and Bitcoin Cash (BCH).
Click the Crypto option on the menu bar and select a cryptocurrency chart you want to view.
As you can see above, we clicked on the Bitcoin chart option. The BTC chart is quite advanced, with access to indicators, metrics, strategies, a compare tool (where you can compare the performance of multiple cryptocurrencies), bars, candles, trend line, fib retracement, patterns, long position, and so on.
The chart also features a brief description of BTC at the end (not that you do not know about the crypto asset already)!
LiveCharts stock market news
The stock market news section is of particular interest to stock enthusiasts. This section features news about the UK market, international markets, company news, broker tips, Forex and commodities, and economic news.
This section does not feature original LiveCharts news. LiveCharts is simply a news aggregator that gathers financial news from global sources. Click your category of choice and select the information that meets your fancy.
If you are a website owner/builder, you can integrate LiveCharts news and live prices into your website with the help of the LiveCharts Widget Builder. The Widget Builder is free.
On a concluding note, if you are looking for a free, trustworthy news source and advanced day trading features, there are few better options than LiveCharts. Its Chat Boards are a fascinating plus - you can chat with like-minded traders and share knowledge!
