StockChartsACP ChartLists

StockChartsACP ChartLists

Overview

StockChartsACP charts can be saved into ChartLists - online “folders” that allow members to store up to 500 charts in a single list. ChartLists allow you to group and organize your collections of saved charts for easy access.

Note: Only StockCharts members can use StockChartsACP ChartLists. Basic members can have just one ChartList, while Extra members can have up to 250 different ChartLists and Pro members can have 350.

Creating StockChartsACP ChartLists

To create a new StockChartsACP ChartList, open the ChartLists panel using the icon at the top right of the screen, and click the green “New List” button at the bottom of the panel:

A popup will open prompting you to name your ChartList. You can also add notes about the ChartList here. Once you've filled out these fields, click the “Create New List” button to create the list.

Your newly-created ChartList will be displayed in the ChartLists panel on the right side of your screen:

Saving Charts to StockChartsACP ChartLists

Once your ChartList is created, you can start saving charts to it. Each ChartList can store up to 500 charts.

Note: If you're using a multi-chart layout, be sure to click on the chart you want to save before starting the save process. The currently-selected chart will have a light blue border around the edge of the chart.

Saving a New Chart

If you are working with a chart that has not been saved to a ChartList, then a “Save” button will appear at the top of the screen:

Click the Save button. You will be prompted to provide a name for your chart and choose the ChartList where you want your chart to be saved. You can also add notes about the chart here.

Modifying an Existing Saved Chart

If you are working with a chart that has already been saved to a ChartList, then the Save button at the top of the screen will change to a green “Saved” button:

When you make changes to a saved chart in StockChartsACP, you will want to save the updated version of your chart in your ChartList.

To do that, simply click the Saved button at the top of the screen. Make sure that “Update Existing” is selected, then click the green Save button:

Saving an Existing Saved Chart as a New Chart

Similar to the “Save As” functionality in the SharpCharts Workbench, StockChartsACP allows you to save a copy of an existing saved chart in a new location.

Extra and Pro members can open an existing chart and save it to a different ChartList (Basic members have only one ChartList).

To save a copy of an existing saved chart in a new ChartList, click the Saved button at the top of the screen. Make sure that “Save As New” is selected, then choose the new ChartList to use. Make any updates to the chart name or notes, then click the green Save button:

Note: You can also save a copy of an existing saved chart to the same ChartList using the same instructions, as long as the names of the two charts are different. To do this, keep the same ChartList selected when saving, but change the chart name so it is different than the original saved chart. Then click the green Save button.

Viewing Your Saved Charts in StockChartsACP

Using the ChartLists Panel

To view a StockChartsACP chart that you have saved to a ChartList, click on the ChartLists icon at the top of the Symbol Selection menu on the right. This will open a panel showing your saved charts.

Click on a symbol on the list to launch that saved chart. To see a different ChartList, click the up/down arrow icon next to the ChartList name and select the desired ChartList.

Using the List Drawer

For more ways to view your ChartLists, click the blue “Open List Drawer” button at the bottom of the ChartLists panel. This opens a new panel at the bottom of the screen:

Tabs across the top of the drawer provide you with different views of the symbols on your StockChartsACP ChartList. The Summary tab (shown above) provides a tabular view of your ChartList, showing price, performance, and SCTR data for all of the ChartList's ticker symbols. Use the dropdown menu at the top of the Summary tab to select a different ChartList to view.

The Notes tab displays any notes that you have added about your ChartList. You can also edit the ChartList notes from this location.

Icons in the top right corner of the drawer allow you to minimize or close the drawer.

Note: When the List Drawer is first opened, it will occupy the lower half of the chart area. To change the height of the drawer, place your mouse between the bottom of the chart panel and the top of the drawer. When your cursor changes to an up/down arrow, click and drag up or down to change the height of the drawer.

Viewing Saved SharpCharts in StockChartsACP

You can also view your saved SharpCharts from within StockChartsACP. Simply open the ChartLists panel and click the SharpCharts button at the top of the panel.

When you click on one of the charts in the list, a StockChartsACP equivalent of your saved SharpChart will be launched in StockChartsACP. There are a few caveats:

  • Only SharpCharts can be viewed; any PerfCharts or P&F Charts saved to your ChartLists will not be available from this panel.
  • Any annotations saved to your SharpChart will not be displayed on the chart.
  • There may be slight variations between the StockChartsACP and SharpCharts version of the chart, depending on availability of indicators and other chart settings across the two platforms.
  • SharpCharts cannot be edited or saved from within StockChartsACP, although you can save a copy of the chart that is displayed to a StockChartsACP ChartList.

Modifying StockChartsACP ChartLists

To edit the properties of your ChartList or to delete the entire ChartList, click the grey “Edit List” button at the bottom of the ChartLists panel. This will open the List Drawer and show the Edit tab.

Note: When the List Drawer is first opened, it will occupy the lower half of the chart area. To change the height of the drawer, place your mouse between the bottom of the chart panel and the top of the drawer. When your cursor changes to an up/down arrow, click and drag up or down to change the height of the drawer.

Editing the ChartList Name

To change your list's name, click the blue “Edit List Name” button at the top of the Edit tab. Enter the new ChartList name and click the green Save Changes button:

Modifying Charts on the ChartList Using the Edit Tab

In addition to editing and saving individual charts using the “Saved” button at the top of the screen, you can also quickly view and edit the chart name and notes for each chart on your ChartList using the Edit tab.

Editing Chart Names and Notes

To edit the name and notes for your saved charts in StockChartsACP, open the ChartLists panel, choose the ChartList where the charts have been saved, and click the grey Edit List button at the bottom of the panel. This will open the List Drawer and show the Edit tab.

Note: Just like with SharpCharts, StockChartsACP charts are displayed in alphabetical order based on the chart name. You can quickly and easily control the order in which your charts appear by including a numeric code at the front of each chart's name.

Deleting Saved Charts in StockChartsACP
