FinChartX: The Award-Winning Financial Chart Library Trusted by Over 3 Million Traders

Over 20 years ago, we saw the need for a better financial chart library.

In 1997, we developed our own financial chart library because we could not find a chart robust enough to meet the requirements of our clients. It seemed that all chart libraries and components out there were developed by...well, charting component companies.

Charting component companies seem to know very little, if anything, about finance. Their financial charting libraries are normally bundled with other standard charting components-doughnut charts, pie charts, fancy 3D surface charts, and other scientific charts-and their interfaces are designed as an afterthought.

FinChartX was one of the first products we released in 1997 (originally called StockChartX), and it has been perfected over the past 20+ years. FinChartX now supports cryptocurrencies, forex, commodities, stocks and other asset classes.

Today, FinChartX is the preferred financial charting component of over three million traders who rely on it daily for real-time interactive charts via financial portals worldwide.

Award-Winning Technical Indicator Library

FinChartX features over 100 popular technical indicators which can be customized with user-defined parameters. Our technical indicators have been validated by their authors whenever possible, so you can be sure the calculations are correct.

Our technical indicator library (view a complete list of indicators here) has won numerous awards by Futures magazine and Stocks & Commodities magazine for both speed and accuracy. FinChartX technical indicators calculate in real-time with microsecond latency.

Support for Multiple Monitors

FinChartX desktop charts are highly optimized and use very little RAM. Professional traders can view charts within multiple monitors, in real time. Mobile charting apps can support finger gestures to zoom and scroll through thousands of market data points, while allowing users to take advantage of over 100 popular technical analysis tools from their iPhone or Android devices.

Continual Performance Improvements

Sure, FinChartX has been around for 20+ years, but our star products are never phased out. We keep our products going, we maintain them regularly, and we keep them reasonably backwards compatible with older versions.

We recently added Elder Ray, Keltner Channel, Coppock Curve, Twiggs Money Flow and other popular indicators. The latest version of FinChartX has better graphics and is over 20% faster than previous versions.

So how do we fight bloatware after 20+ years? Simple. For every feature we add, we also increase performance over the previous version. We keep adding more, but FinChartX keeps getting better and faster.

FinChartX Works Everywhere, Easily

It can run on any desktop, any mobile device, and any web browser, without the use of plugins.

You can manipulate FinChartX using touch gestures like pinch, swipe, and tap. Zoom in, zoom out, scroll left, and scroll right programmatically or via the keyboard or mouse wheel. Change chart window height, colors, styles, and more from within your code. View an unlimited number of series in just one chart.

FinChartX features double buffering to prevent screen flickering, and smooth anti-aliased painting for all technical indicators and line studies for super-clear chart views. Because it doesn't rely on a third-party graphics engine, FinChartX is the fastest stock chart control available.

On a computer with a web browser, FinChartX has a full set of mouse and keyboard controls. This provides a full technical analysis tool set, along with a common user interface and look and feel, across all devices.
