Interactive Charts studies "Stochastics Fast" and "Stochastics Slow" now have an additional "smoothing" parameter that allows you to modify the results based on a moving average, a smoothed moving average, or an exponential moving average.

You will also see price updates to the UK stocks pages during the day, with LSE equities on a 15-minute delay.
If you have Watchlists or Portfolios using .LS symbols, these will continue to be available for the near-term but will eventually be phased out. You should consider switching these symbols to their new .LN extension. (08/28/2018)
Dashboard Modifications: Added Views for Controllers, Sortable Column Headers, Show/Hide "FlipCharts" Ribbon
Dashboard has a number of new features we hope will make using the tool easier for you.
- FlipCharts Ribbon Available for the Controllers: If you are used to using Barchart's FlipCharts to navigate through the list of symbols on a page, you can now show or hide the same FlipCharts ribbon while working with a Controller. The FlipCharts ribbon provides the same list of symbols shown in the Controller, except they are listed at the top of Dashboard instead. Simply click on any symbol in the ribbon to display a full-sized chart.
- Views for the Controllers: When you open the Markets, Watchlists, or Portfolio Controllers, you can change the View for the symbols presented. Choose from Main, Technical, and Performance Views, or apply your own Custom View.
- Sortable Column Headers: Once a Controller is opened and a View is selected, you may click on any column header to sort the symbols in ascending or descending order.
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)
Download Available for Equity Symbol Financial Statements and Reports
You may now download a symbol's Income Statement, Cash Flow, and Balance Sheet data. The download files contain either quarterly or annual data, and will download all quarters/years carried on Barchart.com. Download to a .csv file is available for all Site Members. (08/13/2018)

New Screener Filters for Barchart Opinion
The Screeners have always provided for filtering capability on Barchart Opinion, where the "signal was above or below a specific percent". We've added a number of new Opinion Filters where you can search specifically for just the Buy/Sell/Hold Signal. (06/25/2018)
An example of how you can use these: Look for symbols where the Overall Signal for today is a Buy, but where the Overall Signal from yesterday was a Sell:

Updates to Interactive Chart Controls
