Compare symbols

Advanced Charts and Trading Platform allow you to display multiple symbols on the same chart. The library brings them to the common time zone and trading session. If some symbol's trading session is longer than others, the extra data is cut by default. Alternatively, you can extend the time scale using the secondary_series_extend_time_scale featureset. For example, the current symbol's session starts at 09:00, and you add another symbol whose session starts at 08:00. In this case, the 08:00 timestamp appears on the time scale.

Advanced price scale

Advanced Charts and Trading Platform include additional logarithmic, percent, fractional, and other price scales. You can also display symbols in different currencies and units. For more information, refer to Price Scale.

Building custom resolutions

Advanced Charts and Trading Platform can build bars with a higher resolution using lower resolution data. For example, they can build 2-minute bars from 1-minute bars. For more information, refer to Resolution.

Resolution in seconds and ticks

Trading hours
