Stock Chart Details

(Matt) #1

Hi, I find the current stock chart design difficult to read.

I’m on holiday right now and because the 1 day chart has no times against it I can’t work out without leaving the app if it is today’s pricing or yesterday’s close.

I’d like to see more configuration around the charts - other apps such as Charles schwab offer advanced config - at a minimum I’d be hoping for dates/times and basic features such as Moving averages / comparisons (see below)

Edit: I see this has been moved into a portfolio thread, my thinking was that is was specific to stocks and not the portfolio but could be extended I guess…

I agree with at least having dates on the charts. The “MAX” chart is very difficult to plan investments around at a glance since there is no indication of whether we’re looking at historical data back to 2006 or 1976.

My current broker has just updated its charts types with quite an elegant ‘switching’ solution:

There is a little button in the top left hand side of the chart, which switches chart types. Currently there is a normal $ chart, same one with vertical dotted lines and a candle chart. Whichever you end up on last will be your default. I prefer the one with dotted lines and once I have set it on the Disney’s page, it was applied throughout.

Assuming that Freetrade will retain the % graph and potentially add the £ one, such a convenient toggle could really work well in my opinion.
