How do I get to the English version of the website that automatically redirects me to a national version?

I enter tradeview in my Google Chrome browser on www.google.com and get this website in the search results: https://www.tradingview.com/

When I click on it however, I automatically gets redirected to the national version, https://se.tradingview.com/ 
Even though I have VPN on using an American server.

Is there any way to get to the American version instead, the one displayed in the search results?

This can be tricky, depending on exactly how TradingView enforces their geo.

You might be able to set your location in Chrome. Sometimes this is sufficient.

If this doesn't work, then use a VPN + set your outdrop IP to some US IP.

I use PIA (Private Internet Access). At $33/year USD, it's cheap + they have the fastest outdrop IPs of any VPN I've tested so far.

The site isn't using geolocation (your IP address) to identify your country/language so the VPN doesn't help.  
The language settings are cookied Click on the "SV" and switch it to "EN" at the top of the page, then close the page and revisit.
The language cookie takes precedence over your operating system/browser language settings which the site can see which in turn takes precedence over IP.

I tried that before, changing the URL to https://en.tradingview.com/ but as soon as I hit enter after having done that it immediately changes back to https://se.tradingview.com/

Or do you mean changing to https://en.tradingview.com/ in the browser field without hitting enter and then close and reopen?

Doing this on Chrome right now - have the EN and SE pages open in separate tabs and just searched for GOOGL  both returned results in the correct languages.

But for me your method didn't work if what you did was to change the URL from https://se.tradingview.com/ to https://en.tradingview.com/

Can you get it to look like this?
Chrome - both language landing pages (SE/EN)
What happens if you use Chrome's "Pin Tab" option for the EN version?

Does it revert to Swedish when you reopen Chrome?

No, it's not possible for me to get the two tabs like you display them, I only get in the non-English version.

Really strange, but now I got it to display the English version while I was right-clicking on the tab trying to keep it from going to non-English version. However, when right-clicking I don't get any Pin tab option.
