Future 'Charts' Section Ideas

Jeff Partlow 7 years ago updated by OSV Support 6 years ago 4

Jae, Could you please update us on any progress and plans on the future 'Charts' section?  (This might be worthy of a post on your blog).

Three suggestions for beginning this section:

  1. For one user-selected company ticker, provide line graph showing stock price % change for user-selected timeframe (1 month, 3 months, YTD, or 1 year).
  2. Allow user to select overlay(s) to stock price chart in #1 above of the S&P 500 and/or that   company's industry performance for the same timeframe as selected in #1.
  3. Allow stock price comparison line graph overlays for up to 4 user-selected tickers for any one of the 4 timeframes (same timeframe choices as in #1 above).

In addition, the comparisons in #1 through #3 above are 'price performance' metrics that could be added as screener variables.  This would be a great addition for users who like to screen stocks based on 'price performance' metrics.

Ah yes. It's the next huge feature. Tons of stuff involved with it. We've got the design and usability squared away for the most part. Not 100%, but getting there.

Pretty much what you've outlined are important and what people are used to and need.

Google finance is a basic but good example.


Yes, like Google Finance charts.  You might also check out a service called StockCharts.com as they have terrific charting capabilities.  I have no idea what it would cost you to obtain their service.

Is 'Charts' feature still in the works? -- I hope it is!

I noticed when the 'Training' feature was added, the future 'Charts' feature was removed.

Hi Jeff. Sorry for the late reply. 

Yes it's still in the works. But we are focusing on other areas at the moment.
