Plot single or composite symbols in the same panel, on the same chart or on different tabs.
By default, every chart will open with data for the instrument you requested:
Symbols can be added to the main panel, in which case the plots will become a performance chart:
Symbols can be added to a new panel, in which case the plots will be independent:
Symbols can also be added to a new tab, in which case you will end up with two independent charts hosted in the same chart frame for optimal performance and use of pixel space:
Live Data Composite Symbols
Composite symbols of any level of complexity can be plotted as a "close-only" - or line - chart in any desired time frame. The typical math operator rules apply and symbols must be inserted inside square brackets "[ Instrument Symbol ]".
For instance a composite symbol built as [QGC#]/[QSI#] would end up being plotted as a line chart of the Gold futures / Silver futures continuous contracts.
As another example, a composite symbol built as ([IRX.XO]-[FVX.XO])+([TNX.XO]-[TYX.XO]) would end up being plotted as a line chart of the sum between the 13 week minus the 5 year yield spread and the 10 year minus the 30 year yield spread:
Local Data Composite Symbols
Similarly, composite symbols of any level of complexity can be built out of local data files. To build Local Data Composites you must:
Peg the local data files using the Local Data dialog;
Alternatively, download data from a streaming provider;
Use the Local Composite Data dialog to build local data composite symbols;
The typical math operator rules apply and symbols must be inserted inside square brackets "[ Instrument Symbol ]". Local data composites will also be plotted as a "close-only" - or line - chart in the time frame they are created.
