As we were walking out of a meeting the other day, my good friend Dave Keller (our Chief Market Strategist here at StockCharts) said something that momentarily floored me. It made me stop what I was doing, zoom out mentally and really reflect on the past few months. Funniest part is, it was quite a simple comment that did it...
"You know, I gotta say, we are really working on a ton of incredibly cool things, don't you think?"
Moments like these remind me how easy it is to get dragged down into the daily details and lose track of the bigger picture. But when I do take that time to step back and consider all that's been going on, Dave is absolutely right – we have been doing a ton!
In the past few weeks alone, here are some highlights that I want to make sure you're all aware of:
Since the launch of our new "Symbol Summary" equity research tool, which combines fundamentals, technicals, earnings data, dividends, SCTRs, corporate info and more in a single view, we've continued to tweak and fine tune things based on feedback from all of you – our incredible user base.
I'm spilling the beans here a bit, but I can't help it. Next week, we'll be adding after-hours data to the Symbol Summary with coverage for both the pre- and post-market periods. I've seen the initial tests from our development team and I'm thrilled, so definitely look for that next week. With many more plans for this tool already in the works (more on that here), this is only the very beginning for Symbol Summary and the new data it brings to StockCharts.
ChartList Reports – Now With Mutual Fund Support
Another wonderful new feature that we recently launched is called "ChartList Reports". With the simple click of a checkbox, you can turn on daily or weekly reports for any of your saved ChartLists and we'll automatically email you a performance summary for all the stocks, funds, indexes or other securities saved in that ChartList after the market closes.
This week, we added full support for mutual funds to your ChartList Reports, so those of you who are using ChartLists to track some of the funds you own, for example, should be sure to take a look at how our ChartList Reports can help you.
"Behind The Charts" on StockCharts TV
On Monday, the StockCharts TV team introduced a brand new show called "Behind The Charts". Featuring exclusive, behind-the-scenes interviews with the charting world's very best technical minds and financial analysts, this unique show brings you timeless wisdom and invaluable insights each and every week. You'll hear the stories behind the legends and the history that made them such successful market technicians as we take you "Behind The Charts".
There's much more than I can include here in just one post, but here's the good news. You can explore all of the newest tools, features, shows, blogs, site updates and more that we've been rolling out recently on StockCharts by heading over to our "What's New" page at StockCharts.com/new. I encourage you to give it a scroll through and see what sticks out. Lots to dive into there but I'm sure you'll have fun stumbling across some new items you didn't even know about!
Chart on, my friends.
