In this section we will explore some of the features the charts have to offer, including:
- Swapping out standard candles
- Heikin Ashi candles
- Stock Seasonality
- Adjusting between daily, weekly and monthly candles
Note: The images referenced below are using the WallStreet.io “Dark Theme”. You may have it set to the “Light Theme”. All settings and features will be the same.
To get started, click on the “green bull” icon in the upper left corner of the app. This will take you to Charts.
These charts are designed to be interactive and can be moved and adjusted as you choose.
The chart functions are located at the top of the charts, simply click on the three vertical dots (shown in the image below with a red circle around it) and a drop down menu will appear with the following options:
- Fullscreen - Click this to make the charting feature fullscreen.
- Drawings - save any previous analysis you have added to a chart in the form of boxes, lines, retracements and more.
- Shortcuts - Our team developed keyboard shortcuts to use while you’re charting, you’ll find the full list here.
- Help - Have questions or need assistance? This “Help” option opens up the Support chat line where you can reach us with any questions you have about the platform.
To the right of the chart feature, is the Candlestick view. Click on this for a dropdown menu to display and choose from the following options:
- Candlesticks - standard candlesticks.
- Heikin Ashi - Japanese “average bar” candles.
- Seasonality - displays the historical monthly performance of the stock.
The next option is the candlestick duration type. This can be switched between daily, weekly, or monthly candlesticks.
- Daily candles give you data from the day, or average prices from the day before.
- Weekly candles give you data for that week, or average prices from the week before.
- Monthly candles give you data for that month, or average prices from the month before.
The last option is the list of tools available to use on your chart. Use these tools to draw retracements, lines for support and resistance, add Fibonacci overlay, channels, text and much more.
At the bottom of this drop down is “Clear Drawings”. This option clears out all the tools on your chart.
Tip: To delete any of the tools on your chart individually, hover over them with your cursor until it is highlighted and press "delete" on your keyboard.
