This chart shows the price of Crude Oil ( CL1! ) over the last few years. It is a daily chart and we're going to use it as an example to show you how to quickly measure the time and price change of any asset.

Today, major news came out of the Middle East about a conflict that involves the US, Iran, and Iraq. The news had oil spiking higher. However, when you zoom out, you can see a much bigger move has already been in motion since crude oil bottomed in late 2018. Since that day, more than 375 days ago, crude oil is up 48%.

Step 1 - Open a chart for an asset you're interested in.
