Subscribing to StockCharts

Subscribing to StockCharts

Overview provides a large number of charting capabilities for free to everyone on the Internet. You do not need to sign up or register in order to use our free tools. Just visit the StockCharts website and click on any of the charting links. Most of our tools work in a limited “Free” mode for anyone but will have enhanced features and capabilities for members who are logged in.

Here are some examples of the limitations that exist for Free users:

  • Free users can only create charts based on Daily and Weekly data bars
  • Free users cannot create charts with more than three technical indicators and/or overlays
  • Free users cannot save charts online for later review/access
  • Free users cannot create and run custom technical scans and alerts
  • Free users cannot create larger sized charts with advanced style settings
  • Free users cannot create Public ChartLists to share their charts with others
  • Free users cannot create charts that go back more than three years in time
  • Free users cannot read market commentary from John Murphy, Arthur Hill, or Martin Pring
  • Free users cannot see the DecisionPoint Tracker Reports
  • Free users will see banner ads next to their charts

Becoming a StockCharts member lifts those restrictions and gives you access to the full power of our charting tools and full access to our technical experts.

Service Level Differences

We have four different service levels. Here are the key differences between each of them:

  • Basic - our entry-level service that only allows you to store up to 500 charts in a single ChartList. Basic members also cannot create or run technical scans and alerts. Real-time data for US stocks is provided by the BATS exchange.
  • Extra - our standard service level that allows you to create up to 250 ChartLists, each of which can store up to 500 different charts. Extra members can also create and run technical scans and alerts. Real-time data for US stocks is provided by the BATS exchange.
  • ExtraRT - identical to our Extra service except that the real-time data is provided by the NYSE/Nasdaq/TSX exchanges instead of the BATS exchange.
  • Pro - Our premier service level with much more capacity than our ExtraRT service. Pro members have up to 350 ChartLists and they can create much larger charts.

For people that are just starting out, we recommend our Extra service because it contains all of our key features including technical scans and alerts. Note that you can always upgrade or downgrade at any time.

Becoming a Subscriber

There are several links on our homepage that can be used to sign up for our subscription service including the ”Sign Up” link found in the upper right corner of all of our web pages.

We offer a 10-day free trial to all new subscribers. After completing the subscription process - during which you will need to enter a credit card number and complete any necessary exchange agreements - you can use any of our different services for free.

At any time during the trial period, you can cancel by clicking on the “Your Account” link located in the upper right corner of any page and then clicking the “Cancel your account immediately” button.

During the trial period you can freely upgrade or downgrade your account among any of the service levels we offer. At the end of your trial period, we will charge your credit card based on your most recently selected service level.

Note: The Free Trial Period is only available to new subscribers. It is not available to returning subscribers.
