Hello Fellow ChartWatchers!

The Dow moved above 14,000 yesterday at 11:04am.  How do I know the exact time that happened? I know because StockCharts tweeted about it the instant it happened.  Did you know we automatically tweet about a wide variety of significant technical signals, automatically alerting anyone who watches our Twitter feed?  It is just one of dozens of improvements we made to the website over the course of 2012.  Here are some other improvements you might not know about:

Unadjusted Data -

Just add an underscore to the front of any ticker symbol to see what the unadjusted chart looks like. (more info)

User-Defined Indexes -

Upload data from any spreadsheet and then use our tools to chart it. (more info)

Improved ChartStyles -

Our most recent improvement is the addition of a new interface for creating, using and organizing ChartStyles. (more info)

Phew! and I probably forgot several other things we've added.  So what's coming next?  Well, first of all we are dedicated to continue improving the website and helping everyone get the most out of it.  That said, we are hard at work on even more great improvements which you can expect to see in the coming months and years.

We believe that this dedication to continuous improvement is why AAII called us "Best of the Best" in its latest review of web-based charting tools and why, for the readers of "Stocks & Commodities" magazine have one again voted us "Best Technical Web Site" for the 11th straight year!

Here's to an even better 2013!
