Public ChartLists

Public ChartLists

Public ChartLists give our members a chance to share their own market commentary with the world. Any Extra or Pro member can create a ChartList, fill it up with great annotated charts and market commentary, and then share the ChartList publicly on These shared ChartLists are free for anyone to read, and many of them contain some very high-quality market analysis and trading ideas.

Periodically, all Public ChartLists are ranked according to several different popularity factors including unique visitors, votes from members, “followers” and other factors. The top 100 Public ChartLists appear on the main Public ChartList page, ranked in order of popularity based on these factors. Authors that create popular content consistently will appear higher on the Public ChartList page.

Accessing the Public ChartLists Area

A link to the Public ChartList area appears on the right side of the Free Tools page in the “Additional Tools & Reports” area, and in the Control Center on the Members Dashboard.

You can also see the top 5 Public ChartLists on the right side of the Blog Articles page, with a link to see all Public ChartLists.

Finding a Specific Public ChartList

Public ChartList authors can label their list with up to three different categories, to help you find lists that match your investing interests. Use the “Show” dropdown menu at the top of the Public ChartLists page to display only lists that belong to a particular category.

If you are looking for a particular Public ChartList author, you can click the “Last Name” header in the top row in order to sort by author's last name.

You can also use our website search functionality to search for Public ChartLists that contain a certain symbol or keyword.

Voting for a Public ChartList

StockCharts members can vote each day for up to three Public ChartLists that they like. Voting for a list rewards the list's author with additional “Popularity” points. Each individual vote's impact on a list's rank diminishes gradually over time. Old votes are eventually removed from the list's total, so be sure to re-vote for your favorite three Public ChartLists every day.

To vote for a Public ChartList, click on the gold “Vote” button that appears on the right side of the list's page. Only members can vote, so if you don't see the gold “Vote” button next to your favorite lists, make sure you are logged in.

A gold banner at the top of the main Public ChartLists page will tell you how many votes you have left to cast for the day.

Following a Public ChartList

If you enjoy reading a particular Public ChartList, and you'd like to be notified whenever it is updated, click on the blue “Follow” button that appears on the right side of the list's page. This will mark that Public ChartList as a favorite of yours (with a gold star by its name), and send you email whenever updates are made to that list. Following a Public ChartList will also reward the list's author with additional “Popularity” points.

To quickly see a list of the Public ChartLists you are following, choose “ChartLists I'm Following” from the “Show” dropdown menu at the top of the Public ChartLists page.

Members can follow as many Public ChartLists as they want. Unlike voting, you only need to follow a list once. That setting remains in effect until you click the blue “Unfollow” button on the right side of the list's page. If you unfollow a list, you will no longer receive email updates about that Public ChartList.
