How to Overlay Charts in TradingView

How to Overlay Charts in TradingView

The answer to this question depends on what you mean by overlay charts. If you’re wondering how you can compare two tickers in TradingView, you’ll want to use the compare or add symbol feature. If you want to overlay two different charts in separate panes, you’ll need to change your TradingView Layout. We’ll cover both scenarios below.

You will now have the price line for another stock overlaid on top of the original chart. By default, the new symbol shows up as a line graph. You can right-click the line graph, go to Settings, and change the style from Line to Candles or whatever you prefer.

In this example, we overlay the SPY chart on top of the AAPL chart to compare Apple’s performance relative to the overall stock market. You’ll notice the price on the Y axis is now in percentages. Right-click on the Y axis and change it to regular if you want to see it by price. 

Tap on the price line and press the Delete key to get rid of the overlaid symbol you’re comparing.
