Here is how to customize Bigcharts using the advanced chart settings

 

BigCharts - Advanced Chart Settings

You need to take a couple of minutes to input one-time settings to customize the chart view. Now, what you see on your computer is consistent with the explanations on this site.

This link for the 6-month TSX chart will open in a new window in the the advanced settings mode.

Follow these steps to customize the chart:

  1. Select SMA (3-Line ) in the drop-down list. This is the setting for three simple moving averages.
  2. Input 10,20,40 which is 10-day, 20-day, and 40-day simple moving averages.
  3. Select Volume in the drop-down list.
  4. Select OBV in the drop-down list. This is on balance volume which will be discussed in future posts.
  5. Select MACD in the drop-down list.  This is a momentum indicator. I do use other indicators in this option like RSI.
  6. Select Candlestick , Default and Big for the chart style.
  7. Select Store Chart Settings. This will set a cookie on your computer.

Now the settings are stored on your computer and will link properly from the posts.

I will discuss these advanced settings and others in future posts.
