There are a couple of ways to add a ticker to the chart. You can add a ticker by typing in the ticker name in the ticker box as seen below. You can also add tickers to the Chart while viewing the Table. Please see the following section under Manipulating the Table for more detail.
After entering the ticker in the ticker box it will display the chart as seen below.
You can compare other tickers to your primary ticker by entering new tickers directly into the ‘Compare To’ box, highlighted in the screenshot below.
In the screenshot below you can see the Chart with two tickers added to compare to the primary ticker. These tickers appear in the chart with two different colors.
You can edit the comparison tickers by selecting the pull down menu next to the Compare To text. Here you can remove existing tickers by clicking the x to the right of the ticker. You can also add additional tickers by typing the ticker directly ticker into Add box.
The highlighted ticker on the left is consider the primary ticker. It is the ticker that any technicals or fundamental drawn in the chart will apply to. You can change the primary ticker by clicking on another ticker in the dropdown list. The list consists of tickers you recently referenced. You can also type a new ticker directly into the box.
In the Navigation Panel to the left of the chart, you can select a desired data set and then have the list of ticker from that data set available for quick switching in the chart.
To change the set of tickers displayed in the Navigation Panel, simply select a different data set, e.g. a different portfolio, watchlist or screener. You can also switch to the Quotes list or to a list of stocks from an index, a sector or an ETF grouping.
To do this, click on the pull down arrow to display the Navigation Panel and select the desired item you wish to display. The tickers listed will be populated from the new item you select.
With multiple lines in the chart, if you mouse over the ticker at the top of the chart it will bold the line so you can better see the line in the chart as highlighted in the screenshot below.
You can also mouse over a line within the chart and the ticker that the line belongs to will be highlighted with a box drawn around it on the top portion of the chart.
To remove a ticker from a chart you can click the ‘x’ next to the ticker as shown below.
