Welcome to our Traders’ Academy course on TWS Charts. Investors like to visualize the path of a stock’s performance and traders like to drill down into shorter or longer time frames to analyze price action and technical signs hoping to learn more about the health of an asset.

  • Create multiple charts with different time periods in one panel;
  • Construct and save chart templates for future reuse;

  • Compare multiple stocks with different time periods or against an index to see relative performance;
  • And for those of you who want to trade directly from a chart, we’ll show you TWS ChartTrader.
  • And for Futures Traders, we’ll show you how to create a real-time and historical term structure of futures prices within a chart.
