ComSec enhances charting tools

ComSec’s charting package, part of its online share-trading service provided by Paritech, has been upgraded enabling users to make detailed comaprisons of up to three stocks or indexes on the one chart. This includes charting the percentage change in a stock over time and an easy-to-use stock/index search function.

Charts can be customised by specifying the number of months or years that you wish to analyse using as much as ten years of data. Chart features allow you to view line charts, open–hi–lo–close charts and candlestick charts.

Online brokers are offering more advanced features such as technical analysis to cater for a broad range of investor profiles. Detailed charting services are also offered by eStar, Etrade and Sanford securities.
