Check out the new User-Defined Index Workbench!

If you haven't already seen it, we just launched our new-and-improved User-Defined Index Workbench! As a StockCharts member at our Extra or PRO service levels, you have the ability to create your own our User-Defined Indexes (UDI, for short). You can store any kind of daily time-series data in a custom UDI and then chart that data on the SharpCharts workbench, just like any other widely-available index. For example, you can create a UDI to chart price data for a mutual fund that we don't cover, or another that tracks your portfolio value over time. (For more information about our UDI feature, click here). If you've never taken advantage of this unique tool, now is the perfect time! The new UDI workbench is easier to use, more powerful than ever and has been optimized to work on every screen size, whether you're on a laptop, tablet or smartphone! Click here to visit the new UDI workbench now!
