Charts

Description:

Charts are a visual representation of the movements of a symbol.



Capabilities:

Charts provide historical data for a symbol that watch lists do not.  Charts also allow you to perform calculations on the data in an effort to predict price movements.  These calculations are called indicators, and, like the chart itself, are represented visually.



Key Points:

 10+ years of daily pricing history, where available
 View data on yearly, quarterly, monthly, weekly, daily, tick and intra day basis
 Overlay instruments on top of each other with the option to set a common base for comparison
 View as Arithmetic, Log or Log10 scale
 Variety of chart types are available
      Candlestick
      OHLC (open, high, low, close)
      HLC (high, low, close)
      Bar
      Line
      Point&Figure
      Kagi ( CPL )
      TLB (Three Line Break)
      Swing

Quick Tips:

To create a chart, simply click the Chart icon on the Command toolbar.

You can also:

Click File > New, then select "Chart", and click OK.

Further information:

Candlestick charts display Open, High, Low and Closing price data.

Candlesticks provide a complete picture of what has happened to a security during a given period.


View¬Ľ


  OHLC charts show Open, High, Low and Closing price data.

Appearance aside, OHLC charts work the same as the Candlestick format.


View¬Ľ



HLC charts display High, Low and Closing price data.

A stripped-down version of the OHLC format, HLC charts don't bother with opening price data. Otherwise, they function the same as OHLC charts.

Bar charts indicate when the price range has moved up or down. 

It also indicates when the price range has increased beyond or shrunk inside the previous days price range through the use of colour coded bars. 


View¬Ľ



Line charts display a line connecting the closing price of a security. 

They do not show opening price, nor do they show price movement on a given day


View¬Ľ


 
Point & Figure charts show price movement regardless of the passage of time. 

Price movement and reversals are shown as columns of X's and O's. The X columns represent rising prices, the O columns falling prices. A new column is added whenever the price trend changes according to user specified reversal criteria.


View¬Ľ



Kagi or (CPL) (Cycle Price Line) charts display rising and falling vertical lines to indicate price movement. 

The lines are usually displayed as thick or thin depending on price movement, direction and the point at which prices penetrate a previous high or low. However for readability, they are displayed here using colour. Green represents thick lines and red represents thin lines.

TLB or Three Line Break charts are similar in concept to point and figure charts. 

The decision criteria for determining "reversals" are somewhat different. Each new line, like the X's and O's of a point and figure chart, occupies a new column. Using closing prices (or highs and lows), a new rising line is drawn if the previous high is exceeded. A new falling line is drawn if the price hits a new low.

Swing charts only show a change when the stock price moves more than a certain percentage.


View¬Ľ


 
Common Base charts provide a constant frame of reference for comparison of two or more securities.
