The main charting interface which is composed of several main components - a top toolbar, main chart window, technical indicator windows, and bottom toolbar.

We’ll be covering all of the labelled items and menu items in the following articles but they are all designed to be very intuitive. We do recommend learning by doing… go ahead and play around with each menu item. You’ll soon find your way around without having to read every article in the Guide. There are though, lots of subtle features which extra study of these pages will uncover.

  • How to load shares and navigate the Chart View.
  • How to change the type and timeframe of any Chart.
  • How to compare the performance of multiple shares on a single chart.
  • How to add technical analysis studies as overlays and indicators to any Chart to help predict future share price movements.
