If you think the charts and tools through your brokerage are enough, think again. The power of what I can do as a StockCharts Member, with the advanced charting and the scanning tools and the technical alerts sent right to my phone - WOW. I'm absolutely blown away by how much more I can do with StockCharts than the other tools and platforms I always thought were enough. Thank you for providing such an incredible product!"
Weighted Alpha is a measure of how much a stock has risen or fallen over a one-year period with an emphasis on the most recent price activity. A stock whose price has risen over the one-year period will have a positive Weighted Alpha. A stock whose price has not changed in the period will have a small Weighted Alpha and a stock whose price has dropped over the period will have a negative Weighted Alpha.
We provide real-time charts that automatically update just like streaming charts, but without forcing you to install complicated software packages or browser plugins. Our charts automatically refresh every 5 seconds (Pro) or 15 seconds (Extra & Basic). However, they can be manually refreshed as often as you need just by clicking the "Update" button.
