We are removing our Text-based P&F charts and our Java-based Dynamic P&F charts from the site today. Our graphical P&F charts will continue to work just like they always have.
The removal of our Java-based Dynamic P&F charts continues our progress towards a Java-free experience for our users. Recent security issues with Java have caused us to accelerate our progress in removing/replacing our Java-based tools. We recently replaced our Java-based PerfCharts and Yield Curve tools with HTML5-based equivalents. (Expect that to happen to our MarketCarpet tool shortly.) Unfortunately, the usage for our Java-based Dynamic P&F charting tool has been very low for years and so we've decided not to re-write it.
The decision to remove of our Text-based P&F charts was much more difficult. We would love to keep that tool around however, unfortunately, it is based on out-dated technology that Microsoft no longer supports. That technology has become a serious security concern for us and thus we made the difficult decision to shut down this popular P&F charting tool for now. We have looked into several possible ways to move that program on newer, more secure servers but so far we haven't had any luck. There is a small chance we will be able to rewrite that program at some point in the future as well.
The good news is that our graphical P&F charts do not have any of the problems/issues that these two other charts have. Our Graphical P&F charts will remain an integral part of StockCharts.com for the foreseeable future.
If you feel strongly that we should bring back text-based P&F charts, please let us know by clicking on the following link and signing the online petition that we've created for this issue:
