Gallery View is a one-page, multi-chart summary of the short-, medium- and long-term view for any stock, index, futures contract or mutual fund in our database. Given any ticker symbol, these charts will be automatically generated with predetermined durations and overlays. This view is useful for in-depth analysis of a single ticker symbol's performance and potential for all types of traders.
Check out our Gallery View overview video below, or just read on to learn how to get the most out of Gallery View.
There are several ways to create a Gallery View chart:
Gallery View displays several charts (three for non-members, four for members) for a single ticker symbol. Each chart is customized for analysis of a specific timeframe:
These indicators and settings are based on recommendations from our Chief Technical Analyst, John Murphy. You can learn more about the various settings that are used in the indicator section of our ChartSchool area.
Note: We recommend using the Gallery View indicators as a starting point for learning about using technical indicators in general. They were chosen because they provide key information that technical analysts should study before making any future price movement projections.
In order to view Gallery View charts for two symbols at once, simply enter two ticker symbols separated by a comma. The example below shows side-by-side charts for AMZN and $SPX:
Members can customize the settings and indicators used for Gallery View by creating ChartStyles with specific names. If those styles are found in your account, they will be used instead of the default styles when displaying the charts in Gallery View. Here are the names of the styles that, if present, will override the various Gallery View defaults:
In other words, to change the way that the Daily chart on the Gallery View page looks, create a chart that looks the way you want your Daily Gallery View charts to look and save it as a ChartStyle named “GalleryDaily.” Visit any of our Gallery View pages and you should now see your new settings/indicators in the Daily chart slot. You can repeat the process for “GalleryIntraday” and “GalleryWeekly” to change those charts.

Here are some tips for creating effective Gallery View ChartStyles:
Members can also use GalleryView charts to view ChartLists. From Your Dashboard, you can select “GalleryView” from the “View As” dropdown next to the ChartList you wish to view. Alternatively, you can switch to GalleryView format from other ChartList formats, such as Summary, ChartBook or CandleGlance. To do so, select “GalleryView” from the “View List As” dropdown.
GalleryView will display charts for one symbol at a time in GalleryView format. At the top of the page, you can use the “Select List” dropdown to choose a different ChartList to display. Use the “Select Chart” dropdown to choose a specific symbol in the ChartList to display. The arrow buttons on either side of this dropdown allow you to quickly cycle through the ChartList's symbols.
For additional functionality, click the “Actions” button to the right of the chart's title. From this menu, you can display the chart as a SharpChart, P&F Chart, GalleryView Chart, Seasonality Chart or PerfChart. There are also links to view historical data, recent data adjustments and articles that mention the main ticker symbol for the chart.
While Edit View provides the most comprehensive set of editing tools for your ChartList, some editing can be done directly from GalleryView:
For more editing functionality, use the “Edit List” button at the top of the screen to load the ChartList in Edit View.
The “Delete List” and “New List” buttons can be used to delete the current ChartList and create a new ChartList, respectively.
