A chart document shows a visual representation of the whole time series of a symbol. You can display more than one symbol in a chart, and also add studies (indicators or signals) or drawing objects (for example trend lines) to a chart.
Data compressions & chart types
The symbol (time series) displayed in a chart can be visualized with different chart types (for example line, bar, candlestick, Point and Figure) and data compressions (monthly, weekly, daily, intraday or tick charts).
To show the historical data of the chart in a tabular format, you can use the Data Table View.
Each chart can have one or more panes. You can display different symbols or studies in a chart pane. You can customize the appearance of a chart pane and its header.
Each chart has a horizontal time scale and a vertical price scale. If you display more than one symbol in one chart pane, you can also add a second price scale to the chart.
Similar as with price pages, you can organize your chart with sheets. Each sheet can have a different data compression or chart type.
Get notifications when prices change, chart objects intersect or signals appear
To get an automatic notification (sound, message or e-mail) when the price of a symbol reaches a certain level, use price alerts. You can also get a notification when two chart objects that are in the same chart pane cross (so-called intersection alert). These chart objects can for example be drawing objects (trend line, Fibonacci levels, etc.) or studies (trigger lines, intersections with the time series, etc.). Use study alerts to get notified whenever a new signal marker (Buy / Sell signal) appears on the chart.
