Indicator templates are a very useful feature of TradingView charts. Essentially they are a way of grouping several studies or indicators together into a single package. That package can then be applied to any chart. TradingView comes with 6 study templates pre-enabled. The six standard study templates are; Bill Williams' 3 Lines, Displaced EMA, MA Exp Ribbon, Oscillators, Swing Trading and Volume Based. Users can then also create their own and save them to their own database.
This is an example of a CORN chart utilizing the Oscillator Indicator Template. The Oscillator Indicator Template employs Basic Volume plus three oscillating indicators; The Stochastic RSI, RSI and CCI.
Here is the same CORN chart but with the Bill Williams' 3 Lines Indicator Template applied. This Indicator Template employs Basic Volume as well as 3 Moving Averages of varying length.
To use a preset Indicator Template, simply click on the Indicator Template icon on the toolbar along the top of the chart and click on the template that you wish to use.
Keep in mind that custom indicator templates can be saved. Once your chart contains the desired studies/indicators just click on the Indicator Template icon again and select Save As. In this example the custom template was named New Template Example.
Users with free subscriptions can save 1 custom indicator template, while users with paid subscriptions can enjoy unlimited number of custom templates.
