Best-Charts from Stock-Anal is a free program that offers a multitude of stock data and analysis features, such as technical analysis, intraday chart analysis, and optimal buy and sell signals. The program also offers advanced indicators, such as equivolume, point & figure, and GMMA (Guppy Multiple Moving Average). The program provides almost-real-time data and analysis, although it does require manual refreshing, which is a drawback. (For a review of downloadable auto refreshers, see last week’s Featured Download article.) Best-Charts requires no credit card or personal information.
After installation, Best-Charts opens to a screenshot of www.Stock-Anal.com’s front page, which highlights some of the program’s features. To get started analyzing stocks right away, enter a ticker in the top-right “Symbol” box. For example, entering YHOO will display charts and data for Yahoo! while entering ^DJI will display the Dow Jones industrial average. On the charts, a red “X” indicates a sell signal, while a green “O” indicates a buy signal. Clicking the “W” on the toolbar located just above the charts will refresh the data. Clicking the “More” button on the toolbar will display the charts for more advanced indicators.
