"I used to trade based on data I collected from the weekly newspapers. I created my own formulas and did the math. Yes, it was very labor intensive. A few years later, I purchased data. Fat City! The amount of time it freed up for analysis was astounding. A few years later I purchased software and data. True Heaven! Then I launched my own newspaper and started investing in options in the 1990's. I was thrilled with my success of turning $2,000 into 10,000 in 18 months. Then life happened and years passed."
Editor's Note: If you are looking for data, we carry history from circa 1990 (with some symbols going back even further) on the Historical Data pages (found on the My Barchart tab). View historical quotes, charts, technicals and opinions, or download data in CSV (Comma Separated Values) format.

"Barchart.com is literally the first thing I look at when I turn on my web browser. The futures page with all futures provides a useful and comprehensive snapshot of currencies, bonds, US indexes, metals and some softs. I can easily correlate movements among the dollar, treasuries and gold, for example. The charting software, signals, and sectors are excellent."
Editor's Note: Another way to look for movements of different commodities is to use the new Futures High/Low pages. Quickly see how far off a commodity is trading from its current price, using different time frames: from 5-Days to 10-Years.

"Barchart's stock screening system is easy to understand. I look at the short-, medium-, and long-term percentages rankings for the stock, then I read up on the company and go from there."
Editor's Note: Besides using the "Technicals" category in the Screener to look at short-, medium-, and long-term percentage rankings, the Trading Signals page presents stocks that are at a 100% Buy or Sell signal, and also stocks that reach NEW Buy/Sell/Hold signals throughout the trading day. Don't trade stocks? We also have pages for ETF Trading Signals, Futures Trading Signals, and Forex Trading Signals.

"Barchart.com offers the best overview of futures prices available on the internet. It displays a professional trading screen with all the necessary features. The futures price list is more or less a small Bloomberg or Reuters screen. Because of the better overview and the much easier way to customize my own portfolio, I prefer Barchart.com much more than Esignal.com."
Editor's Note: You can set your portfolios to be simple quote boards or "watchlists", or you can use them to track your "bought" and "sold" positions. With multiple views, FlipCharts, an end-of-day email option, and even the ability to download the view to Excel, portfolios are designed for flexibility.
