Custom Build Your Own Charts
As promised, we’re now going to take a look at some of the advanced charting solutions powered by QuoteMedia and offered as a convenience to our Premium Members.
What you will find is a very versatile tool that allows you to custom build charts according to specs of your choosing from a wide range of parameters, including Bollinger Bands, moving averages, momentum, stochastics, etc. You can even choose between a range of time intervals, such as 1-day, 5-day, 1 month, 1 year, etc., and frequency, such as 30 minutes, 1 day, 1 week, 1 month, etc.
To Get To Advanced Charts You Must Switch From the Default, which is a Basic Line Chart
When you click on the “CHARTS” tab on a given board at IV, a basic line chart is shown by default. (As before, we will use GE as our example.) Directly below the basic chart, you will find links to interactive and java charts, as indicated by the red arrows at the bottom of the image. To change to a different chart view, just click the link for the one you want.
Interactive and Comparative Charts
In the chart pictured above, you will see that you can build your own chart according to a wide range of parameters that you control. In this case a Simple 50-day Moving Average was used along with Bollinger Bands for a Six Month Period in 1 day increments (or frequency).
In the chart pictured above, you will see that it was built to spec using a 5-day period in 30 minute increments (frequency), using the SMA & Bollinger Bands, along with several “indicators” including Stochastics, Momentum and Volume.
When you click to load the java chart, you may be get a security prompt asking if you want to continue. To do so, click “run.”
Once the java chart loads, it will look like this. Unfortunately the image below is static, but the point of the java chart is that when you move your cursor over the chart, it will spit out data based on the moment in time your cursor is hovering over. The information highlighted in the red box will change as you move your mouse from one side of the chart to the other.
