Plug-ins extend the functionality of StockChartsACP, allowing you to add specialized indicators and other features to the platform.
We recommend installing the free StockCharts Advanced Indicator Pack, featuring indicators for StockChartsACP that are not available elsewhere on the StockCharts site, including Balance of Power, DEMA, and TTM Squeeze. We'll use this indicator pack as an example in the section below on installing free plug-ins.
StockCharts has also partnered with technical analysis experts to bring you many additional plug-ins. Both free and paid plug-ins are available, and more are being added all the time. Please see the ACP Plug-Ins page in the StockCharts Marketplace for a complete list of plug-ins that are currently available, as well as a sneak peek at new plug-ins that are coming soon.
To add a StockChartsACP plug-in to your account, click the Plug-In Icon on the Platform Integrations menu at the bottom right. A panel will open up showing many of our plug-ins. Click the “Get the Plug-In” button for more information on a specific plug-in or click the “See All Plug-Ins” button at the bottom for a complete list.
Any of those links will take you to the StockCharts Marketplace, where you can purchase and install plug-ins.
Note: Be sure to log in to your StockCharts account before installing plug-ins.
