Chart Display Options

Under ‘Type’ you can choose whether or not to chart in dollars and percent change, and whether or not to see total return or not. When more than one item is being charted, the y-axis unit will always be percent change in price. However, if you have only one stock in the chart, you can select whether it displays by price (in dollars), or by percent change in price, with candlesticks, or in logarithmic pricing by clicking the ‘Settings’ heading in the top right of the chart panel. Price Logarithmic scale is a linear scale for percent change. The distance between 10 and 15 (50% change), is the same as the distance between 100 and 150.

Display Options

Also listed under Options you can choose to Link Main Table to Chart, Adjust Price for Dividends or have Crosshairs off. You can choose to have the chart linked or unlinked to the Table. Linking the chart to the Table means that an item clicked in the Table will automatically be charted as the main ticker in the chart. If the chart is unlinked, then you can click freely in the Table without affecting the chart.
