For Phase I of Markets re-design, we are introducing simple OHLC bar charts with a volume histogram.
To adjust the period and scale of the chart, use the "slider" bar which appears underneath the Volume histogram frame. If the slider frame is not appearing, you may need to adjust the 'Zoom' view of your internet browser or adjust your screen resolution to a lower resolution.
By dragging the start and end arrows of the slider bar to the left and right, you can easily adjust the date range.
Features planned for Phase II will include a selection of chart types and a technical indicator library with the ability to define a custom date range for the chart data.
