Outstanding technical analysis

You can use Alpha's charts and analytics to identify underlying trends, anticipate breakouts and time market entry and exit. Alpha includes a comprehensive suite of chart styles and analytics which can be applied to both historical and real-time price charts.

Clients are impressed by how easy it is to review stocks using different analytics, and how quickly they can scan through a list of shares such as the FTSE 100 or a portfolio.

"I use charts heavily and Alpha Terminal has far superior charting tools to other data terminals."

From your EPIC list, simply double-click on a stock to display its price chart. You can fully customise the colour, time frame and style of the price chart including analytics. You can save unlimited chart configurations and place them on the toolbar so that you can apply them with a click of the mouse. For example, you may wish to use a 12 month OHLCV chart with moving averages as a default but have a 5 year chart and Relative to benchmark chart configured for a second and third opinion.

Flexible charting at your fingertips

A great feature of Alpha is the ability to draw your own support, resistance and trend lines on historical and intraday price charts. The lines and comments you add to charts will be automatically saved.

Flags for breaking news, forthcoming ex-dividend dates and results announcements, directors' dealings and bid situations ensure you are aware of significant events at all times.

"I can actually set up alarms so that an alert is sent not just to me but to the client as well."

On price charts you can overlay key company dates, such as Results and ex-dividend dates, details of directors' dealings, and, if you manage a fund or portfolio, transaction dates.
