Due to recent discussions on the forums, we decided to release an early (beta) version of a chart color customization page. While this is by no means polished, we thought it would provide immediate benefit for a number of StockFetcher members.

In the final version we will offer a number of prebuilt chart color schemes - so if you have a favorite color configuration - send it our way ( !

Since this is a beta, you'll only be able to access the page through the following link:

Send us your feedback!

Best regards! Support

SF, your beta feature to add chart color customization is terrific! I vote for this for immediate implementation. Now I will be able to spend all of my time playing with all of these colors and not have to worry about picking stocks!

Keep up the great job. Joe

The custom chart colors option is great! I think the best way to have custom color applied would be to allow us to go to a page, like you have now, create our custom color code and then save the code as a "CHAIN" item / filter. We could then apply / add the "Color Chain" to any individual filter and we could make a different "Color Chain" for different filters if desired. I hope this approach doesn't open a pandoras box!

There is one other Custom Color feature you should add to make the charts even more useful. Please add a "Condition" / Filter specific over-ride! This would allow users to immediately see where / when "on the price chart" the filter was PREVIOUSLY applicable in a manner similar to the green triangles on the historical charts. This would be an easy and quick way to identify the EXACT BAR / Candle where / when the "Condition" / Filter occurred.

For example: If I specified the regular / normal "Candle Gain Border" as #009900 and the "Candle Loss Border" as #c00e0e then I could specify a "Condition" / Filter specific over-ride for "Candle Gain Border" as #000000 and the "Candle Loss Border" as #000000. This would make the applicable bar / candle highly visible and provide a good past reference point on the chart from which to make an analysis. You might even want to offer the "OVER-RIDE" feature on the Volume Bars.

I think adding the "Over-Ride" feature would also give SF Charts a unique advantage over other online charting alternatives and set a new standard for others to follow.

Thanks for your consideration.

What a great improvement. You guys are basically the only site I know of that listens to its customers.

The number ONE rule in any business is...take care of your customers and they will take care of the business.

Thanks again.
