Upgrade from an earlier version of EzyChart.

"Thank you for allowing me to beta test EzyChart. I have been very pleased with its functionality and improvements. Unlike the earlier version I am able to save my favourite charts and add text and trend lines to them without them disappearing. Well done."
- M. McCann

"As I am interested in analysing GICS Sectors I was wrapped to see this as a workspace that I can play through as Live Charts."
- J. White

"The new EzyChart looks very different. However after only a few hours of playing with all the new features I can see that it has a lot more power than the previous version of the software. I like that I can scroll back through all my History - at last!."
- R. Mould

"The live chart feature is even better than before. It's great how I can run my scans in EzyAnalyser 6 and then view the ones that passed in EzyChart with the indicators already applied."
- M. Hillus

Tool Description
Cross Hair A vertical and horizontal line will be drawn on the point of the mouse. The values for each line (date & price) will be displayed in the axis.
Curves and Saucers Includes both Parabolic and Elliptical.
Fibonacci Tools This set includes the four types: Arc, Fan, Retracement and Time series.
Gann Retracement This tool lets the user draw a trend line on the chart. It then uses the top and bottom point of this line to calculate and plot nine resistance/retracement levels at a set percentage.
Horizontal Line Places a single horizontal line on the chart that spans the whole chart.
Horizontal Lines Places two lines on the chart where you control the start and end points.
Line Places a single line on the chart where you control the start and end points of the line. You can create a copy of the line and drag to a new position to create one or more Parallel lines.
Percent Retracement Plots the percentage (%) retracement between two price movements.
Pivot Point Lines A series of vertical lines are drawn from the mouse point, measuring the interval (user defined). Then a series of coloured horizontal lines are marked between the vertical lines. These lines include the pivot line (yellow) which can be calculated using two formulas (user defined) and then a group of support (red) and resistance (green) lines.
Time series Lines A series of vertical lines will be drawn across your chart (from the initial point selected by the mouse) using the interval parameter set by the user.
Trend Line Places a single line on the chart which continues beyond the end values. You can create a copy of the Trend line and drag to a new position to create Parallel Trend lines.
Vertical Line Places a single line on the chart spanning the whole chart from top to bottom.
Vertical Lines Places two lines on the chart where you control the start and end points of the lines.
Volume Trend Lines Study the amount of accumulated volume a stock experiences. This tool automatically calculates a value based on previous volume amounts, however this can be edited by the user.
Note: All trend lines display percentage values for slope, growth and Compound growth.
