Chart-Live Upgrades

April 24, 2017 | Posted by Honghui Lin


We know charting is one of the most important tools in trading. That is why we are constantly looking at ways to improve our Chart-Live. Check out some of the recent upgrades we made on POEMS 2.0.

Corporate Action Adjustments (for SG stocks)

Corporate actions such as share split or share consolidation can create price gaps in charts that can be disruptive when you perform your technical analysis. For example, a share split of 3-for-1 will cause the price to become one-third of what it used to be, creating a large gap on the chart. This may create seemingly bearish signals.

Therefore, we provide the option of adjusting the historical price data to ensure that all price movements on our charts are caused by pure market forces for more informed Technical Analysis. Simply right-click anywhere on the chart and select “Show Adjusted Chart Data”:

Corporate Actions


In addition to the all-time favourite Midnight Black, you can now view your preferred charts in equally cool themes such as Classic White and Ash Gray. Simply click on the “Settings” button to make a change:


Bonus tip: Printing your charts? For best results, use Classic White theme.
