Advanced Charting
The various charts show an historical view of the market for a variety of metrics. This enables you to see at a glance the history for the various metrics for one or more selections.

You can have up to 3 separate sets on advanced charting, each set with its own configuration options. Each set can include from 1 to as many charts as you require, with a unique & completely customisable way of laying them out. Set 1 & 2 are floating windows, and can be launched by clicking on the launch chart icons of the respective selections in the grid or the ladder.

Set 3 are embedded in the ladder, and relate to the runner in that ladder. By selecting the Ladder Menu -> Ladder Layout -> Streaming Chart Options, you can determine the chart placement in the ladder. There are 5 options for the embedded ladder chart placement Off, In Chart Column, Top, Bottom, Very Bottom.
In the below image you can see one possible configuration of the In Chart Column setting.

The floating chart sets can be launched from either the grid or the ladder by clicking on the respective launch Icons as shown above.

There are 3 defined sets of behaviour for the floating charts, which can be set from the Main Info Bar Menu -> Streaming Chart Options. These are….

  • Current Selection - Up to one window of each floating chart set will be displayed. Whichever selection your mouse is currently over, the information for this runner will be displayed in the window.

  • Multi Selection - Up to one window of each chat set per selection will be displayed. These are tied to the grid order in the application.

  • Multi Selection Ladder - Up to one window of each chat set per selection will be displayed. These are tied to the ladder order in the application.

NB There is an option in the Ladder Menu called Use GlobalOrdering. If this option is switched on, the grid & other controls always track the ladder ordering. As such there is no difference between Multi Selection & Multi Selection Ladder in this mode.

Charting Set Layout Options
Each charting set can be configured to display one or more charts as per your preferences. To configure the number of charts, the type of charts and the layout, right click on the respective chart to bring up the menu. When you first use each chart set, a single Line chart will display. To change this chart to one of the other chart types, select This Chart Is.. from the menu.

To add an additional chart, select Layout->Add Splitter from the menu. This will add a horizontal splitter to the chart set with an additional Line chart. Should you wish to change the splitters orientation to vertical, select Layout->Splitter Orientation->Vertical from the menu.

Below you will see the menu for a floating 2-chart configuration.

Charting Saving / Loading
The option already exists in the application to save and load entire profiles, which remembers all settings including the charts for fast recall at a later date. In addition the application will always remember your current settings when you close down for your next use.

However a useful addition is you can also save & load your own customised individual charts. These charts include all settings for that particular chart. You can save, load and delete these custom charts using the Load Custom Chart, Save Chart As.. and Delete Custom Chart options.

This is useful for copying charts between various profiles and sharing them with friends.
