Product Review: Stockcharts.com by Jayanthi Gopalakrishnan
StockCharts.com has long been a popular technical analysis website among chartists. It has been a while since we last reviewed stockcharts.com. Since then, several new features have been added that deserve attention, but before we get into that, I think an overview of the site is necessary.
What chartist doesn’t want to view charts, get a quick summary of market activity, learn about charting, keep up to date with relevant market information, and find stocks that meet their technical criteria? StockCharts.com is a useful one-stop site where you can find just about everything about financial market charts.
The home page (Figure 1) gives you an overview of the current market. There’s an updated chart of the daily activity of the major indexes. You also see a list of the current popular charts at StockCharts.com as well as those that are consistently popular. You also have links to market summary and breadth charts. The market summary gives you an updated daily view of major indexes, sectors, bonds, commodities, and currencies. Clicking “breadth charts” displays a CandleGlance display of some of the market breadth indicators. CandleGlance charts display several small charts in one page so you can see various charts at one time.
