Types of Charts


The main chart in Stock Rover is the price chart. In addition to the price chart, Stock Rover offers a number of additional charts that can be displayed with, or instead of the price chart. There are four categories of additional charts; Valuation Charts, Technical Charts, Ratio Charts and Fundamental Charts.

The following sections describe the different types of charts available in Stock Rover.

Price Chart

The price chart charts the price over time of the primary ticker. The price chart has many additional capabilities and options. For example it can chart additional tickers, known as comparison tickers. It can also chart benchmarks and macro objects such as portfolios, watchlists and screeners.

The price chart can be in dollars, or by price percentage change. It can also be displayed logarithmically or in Candlestick mode. Price charts can be augmented with events such as dividends, earning announcements, splits and maximum drawdown. All of these features are described in depth later in this help section.

Valuation Charts

  • Price vs Fundamental
  • Historical Range
  • Football Field
