Set Your StockCharts up Like Corey

Feb 13, 2009: 3:43 PM CST

I’ve had a number of readers ask me for my settings or style on StockCharts and I posted one article entitled “How I Set-Up My Charts” but I wanted to go over it again and provide a predefined chart link to make it even easier.

Clicking the S&P 500 chart below should take you to a recreation of the settings:

StockCharts Link

To recap, on StockCharts.com (which is what I use for educational blog posts because I like the clean format), I am using the following settings:

20 EMA (Green)
50 EMA (Blue)
200 SMA (Red)

Bollinger Bands (20, 2) which are ‘faded’ to an opacity of 0.5
I like to see volume (overlay)

I often display charts to “fill the chart” on the 620 setting

Finally, I customize the MACD to input 3, 10, 16 in the box to create the “3/10 Oscillator”

And I almost always use Candle Charts except when showing some Elliott Wave Counts, in which case I’ll use line charts (I also use line charts to demonstrate relative strength or percentage changes).

Keep in mind that I do my trading with TradeStation where I’m using custom indicators and a similar set-up, but using other tools in combination.  It’s easier to explain the concepts I want to show by using StockCharts.com since more people understand and have access to it than TradeStation.

As always, thank you for your questions and feedback.

    Alb,

    Thanks for reading!

    The above chart will link you in to what I’m seeing on the S&P 500.

    To change to the weekly frame, just change the periods in SC.com to Weekly (or monthly).

    It saves me from posting an extra image on the blog and it’s just as easy to toggle timeframes.

    Hello Corey, and thanks a lot for this site.
    Here is something that could be useful, it’s an excel function that will create a link to stockcharts based on your chart settings and a ticker. Say your ticker is in A1: =HYPERLINK(“http://stockcharts.com/h-sc/ui?s=”&A1&”&p=D&b=5&g=0&id=p48531175590″;”C”. A little “C” will appear on the cell, and if you click it it will popup a stockcharts of your symbol. Cheers.

    actually I forgot to close the formula. It’s:

    HYPERLINK(”http://stockcharts.com/h-sc/ui?s=”&A1&”&p=D&b=5&g=0&id=p48531175590?;”C”)

    Cheers, cordura21
