This is something that has bugged me about StockFetcher charts forever !!!

I have a chart with 6 overlays on price action (moving averages) !

Of those 6...2 are the same shade of green...1 is "baby blue" (or, whatever) and 2 are purple !!!

The 6th line is yellow. fwiw

The ah hem..."baby blue turquoisey" line is so close in color to the 2 green lines...it may as well be green. Difficult to tell the difference at times.


But seriously, 2 are green...1 may as well be green...and 2 are purple !

Is it just me or is that just completely freaken ridculous ???

How the hell are you supposed to discern which line represents what...unless you sit there and study each line carefully ? Damn near completely useless !

If I look down to the lower indicators...I have a MACD where 1 line (the slow line) is some pale-ass green shade...and the fast line is lite blue. Again... completely freaken ridculous !

When are you going to do something about this StockFetcher ?

This is a pretty serious flaw that needs to be remedied...FIX IT PLEASE !

...and while you're at it StockFetcher...

How bout you give us some color options in "Chart Backgrounds"...instead of that bland basic White ???

Say for example...the ability to change the chart background to...oh...I don't know...how bout BLACK ???

Maybe THEN...those ridiculous pale-ass "pastel shades" that seem to be randomly assigned to the Indicator plots...might POP off the screen a bit...and you could actually tell what the hell it is you're looking at !!!


Looking at stock charts shouldn't be this difficult !


BEWARE STOCKFETCHER SUBSCRIBERS...STOCKFETCHER CHARTS MIGHT MAKE YOU GO BLIND !

First, to customize chart colors you can use the chart-color page:

http://help.stockfetcher.com/sfhelp/?id=100351

Next, as far as setting specific series colors, this is a limitation with the HTML-version of StockFetcher. For more color customization options, at this time we recommend trying the StockFetcher 2.0 product.

Additionally, while we do try to monitor StockFetcher forums, we strongly recommend contacting us directly at support@stockfetcher.com for any concerns, such as these.

...well, I've never seen that SF "chart color" page ( color settings ) anywhere !

Not in the SF manual...not in the Announcements or Indicator sections of the forums.

Nowhere !

Where the hell did that page come from ?

Is it considered "Top Secret" ?

Am I the only one that didn't know it existed ?

Jeeezzz !!!

------------------------

Sometimes I get the feeling that the whole SF 2.0 thing is the main focus for the SF staff.

For those of us who don't particularly care for it...we're "SOL" !


Oh well...gotta go "colorize" a few things !
