    Usage

    The applet displays a main price stream and provides the functionality to display one or more indicators for this stream. It also allows one to draw trend lines, by clicking and dragging the mouse, and to load another price stream to be used as comparison.

    Options:

    By clicking on the "Options" button, or by clicking the right mouse button on the main charting area, the options menu will be displayed which allows one to do the following:

    • Specify the type of chart to display:
      • OHLC price ranges
      • Line graph showing daily high prices
      • Line graph showing daily low prices
      • Line graph showing daily closing prices
      • Candlestick chart
      • Select the required price period:
        • Daily prices
        • Weekly prices
        • Monthly prices
      • Select the indicators to show in the Stats 1 and/or Stats 2 windows:
        • MACD
        • RSI
        • Momentum
        • Stochastics
      • Toggle the display of the volume window
      • Select Linear/Semi-log scale
      • Select an overlay to display on the main charting area:
        • Moving averages
        • Bollinger bands
        • On balance volume
        • Linear regression line
        • Comparison price stream -- once its price stream has been retieved
      • Select the required line drawing type (lines are drawn when you drag the mouse):
        • None
        • Freehand
        • Straight lines only
        • Fibonacci retrace lines
      • Set the cursor options
      • Toggle between local & global scaling of the main price stream
      • Repaint the chart

    Keyboard functions:

    • "<","K" zoom starting date (left edge) out/in
    • ">","L" zoom endig date (right edge) out/in
    • "<-", "->" (left & right arrow keys) scroll left/right
    • up & down arrow keys move cursor left/right
    • "Home", "End" scroll to extreme left/right
    • "D", "W" & "M" toggles between Daily, Weekly and Monthly price periods

    Configurable items:

    Select the moving average type:

    • SMA = Simple Moving Average
    • WMA = Weighted Moving Average
    • EMA = Exponentialy Weighted Moving Average
    Note that the moving averages are always calculated off the closing prices, even when a High or Low line chart is plotted

    Indicators:

    MACD: requires the size of both green & red MAs to be greater than 0

    Bollinger: 21 day simple moving average with range lines 1.5 x StdDev away

    RSI: Period = 14

    Momentum: Period = 21

    Stochastics: %K Period = 9, %K Smoothing = 3, %D Period = 3

    Comparison:

    The comparison line always plots close price, scaled to start at the same level as the closing price of the main price stream on the first visible date. This is intended for the comparison of the relative growth of the two streams over the period that is displayed.

    Known problems/issues:

    Java applets have problems retrieving prices if accessed from behind a proxy server
