    Is there any updates on this? What is the best way for interactively drawing lines on a chart for analysis?

  • Fahad Waliany commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I have a question on Technical Indicators Add on. Currently it only shows one stock can make it user interactive so that the user chooses th time set for a specific symbol. I think i need to integrate this with the yahoo finance API or google API, just looking for some start up guidance as to how to take the user input and then generate the necesssary indicators chart. Please let me know if anybody can provide me any guidance on that. my email is fwaliany@gmail.com

    @Admin: Technical indicators (SMA, MACD, OBV ...) can be calculated using third libraries or by your own implementation, and after setting up the proper series for the chart.

    What I understand for this thread and what I am asking is a solution for drawing by hand, over a stock chart, trend lines, support/resistence lines, fibonacci retracement lines etc. This is important to tell us important points when doing an technical analysis. Just a stock chart does not tell us much without some extras graphical elements.

    I think this is a very important and useful improvement to Highstock.

    Strange ...

    Trend lines, support/resistence, fibonacci retracement and other are basic for Technical Analysis.
    While others lib chart implement those tools and also a lot of people asking for, Highsoft doesn't give no answer for this question ...

    Yes from what it looks like the Black label plugin only annotates from the program. But is there a plugin which will allow to draw freely over the chart using a mouse.

  • maxx astral commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I am also very eager to see the Annotation API which would give the user or the viewer of the charts an ability to draw lines, arcs, circles, etc with the mouse on top of the chart. Just like its implemented in https://www.tradingview.com/e/ . It would be really a very useful feature for a lot of traders who want to draw lines freely on the chart in order to mark trends, events, etc. To be more specific i'm really looking forward to draw Fibonacci lines and Elliot Waves on top of the chart. So please consider implementing this feature as it would make Highstocks a complete stock charting package.

    I'm using today the amCharts library for these functionalities.
    As we moved to HighCharts because of Javascript compatibilty, I'm waiting for these functionalities.

  • D. Marvill commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Great. This sounds like a plan which offers much flexibility. I know this feature is not in a "started" state, but how do you feel about the Annotations API being ready for the upcoming 3.0 release? I am strongly considering your product for my company and this is one item that's holding us back.

    Yes I suppose so... What I envision is a complete Annotiation API that allows lines, text boxes and other types of shapes that are bound to either chart data, axis values or pixel positions in the chart. The annotation module would fire events in Highcharts and keep an updated reference of what is annotated, then it's up to the implementer what to do with it - store it in cookies, pass it to the server by AJAX or whatever.

  • D. Marvill commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    In stock/product charting, analysts and traders alike frequently draw trend lines manually. What could be done, after a trend line is drawn, is give the user the ability to change the start and end point by entering values for each. In addition to trend lines, other types of drawings are used in analysis such as Fibonacci Retracements, text and other shapes.

    amcharts (http://www.amcharts.com/stock-chart/drawing-trend-lines/) conveys the general idea but I don't think it is implemented well. One should be able to edit

    In considering the solution, Torstein, since all of the above entail drawing on the chart area, would all of the above be solved under this idea?
