Opening a Chart

Introduction

 

Please watch the following short video to get an overview of our charts, what's included and our goal in creating them for you.

 

 

Our Charts are designed for ease of use. The charts use our own internal color scheme. You can choose light or dark background. Whichever you choose, all studies/drawings will be highly visible on that background without you needing to change any color settings. We believe in software working "out of the box" and not needing you to spend hours tinkering with things to make them look right. This will be a major change for most and we believe you'll come to prefer this approach once you get over the fact it's such a different way to deliver charts.

 

To open a chart, go to the main platform menu:
