Stacked Stock Chart
Stacking is generally not utilized in financial data visualization. However, financial charts are often used for purposes other than making sense of Forex, stock, commodity and other market data. For example, the Stock Chart is convenient for visualizing sales and web audience data over a long period of time, and that's where the Stacked Stock Chart can work great as well.
The current release features 5 new technical indicators. These include Accumulation Distribution Line (ADL), Commodity Channel Index (CCI), Chaikin Money Flow (CMF), Directional Movement Index (DMI) and Chaikin Oscillator (CHO). As a result, AnyStock now provides 21 technical indicators out of the box. In fact, our plans to implement various technical indicators in AnyStock are really far-reaching. See the roadmap of AnyStock to learn which ones are scheduled for release with the following major updates.
Marquee Select and Zoom tools
Marquee Select and Zoom tools work great to facilitate the exploratory data analysis. They make the research of data visually represented on an interactive chart even more convenient and intuitive. What's also important is that our Marquee Select and Zoom tools may be integrated with any custom UI by means of events:
