Does anyone have any suggestions on charting software?
Thanks. I appreciate you posting this.
Does anyone know about power investor ( http://www.powerinvestor.com/PowerInvestor/ ) and if so what do you think about it?
I read an article about it saying it was really good. I want to check it out but don't have the $99 at the moment (hurrican wilma headed towards me)
I'd like to second stockcharts.com. They have the best free charting service I am aware of. Their Sharp Charts 2 beta is even more impressive.
I used SuperCharts for several years, then abandoned it when I found the Worden Brothers TC2000 program. TC2000 was the best thing in my life until I switched from a Windows PC to a Mac running OS X. That Worden program won't run on a Mac without a Windows emulator, and that would put me right back to cussing at my Windows screen -- also my friends who use an emulator say it runs v-e-r-y s--l--o---w----l------y. So I go along with others in this thread who touted StockCharts.com as the best freebie. Its charts and other features are simple to set up and comprehensive. And their Sharp Charts 2 beta is wondrous. It allows annotating, Fib charts and lots of stuff you can't easily find elsewhere, at least on a free site.
For US and Aussie stocks it is very hard to beat
this FREE charting site .....:
..... has lots of indicators and free educational
info for techies, too .....
Thanks, Yogi. The IncredibleCharts site looks great, but I use an iMac G5 and that software is Windows-only. I love my iMac and wouldn't trade it for ANY program. Good luck.
I agree with StockCharts.com as well. I like to use their Gallery View, it tells you alot on one page.
The recent upgrade on StockCharts.com added and improved a bunch of stuff I haven't had time to check out. But they get a gold star for trying. One thing I haven't figured out is how to make the site retain whatever settings I put in, so next time I'm right there except for changing the symbol. Usually there's a "store settings" button or something like that on most sites, but I haven't found it after the upgrade. Not a big deal, but a minor nuisance to retype my specific settings every time I visit the site the first time that day. Also, before the upgrade I was able to have my Safari browser open the site to my current hot stock, but not it opens to the Dow Industrials, about which I care little. Small tidbits.
Thanks for all the information that you’ve shared.
