Interactive Charts: New Panes Dynamically Added to Chart Height
Interactive Charts allow you to set a beginning chart height in the Settings menu (Small, Medium, Large, X-Large). We've changed the way new study panes are added to the chart, to keep the size setting applied to the main chart containing the symbol, and to then exponentially increase the overall height of the chart as new studies are added in new panes. You may still drag and drop each pane's size to set their heights. (08/20/2018)
Screeners Now Show the "Compare to [field]" on the Results Filter View
When creating a filter in the screener where one field is compared against another, you will now see BOTH fields on the Results Filter View. For example: If you added a filter for Technicals => 20-Day Moving Average => greater than [field] => 50-Day Moving Average... both the 20-Day and the 50-Day Moving Averages will appear when you look at the Results using the Filter View. This helps you verify and see the differences between the two fields. (08/20/2018)
