My directories


Although the www.finecharts.com website contains many pre-prepared tools and charts available to all users in the REPORTS section, and they can follow everything that other users created in the analysis of prices - other users being analysts, investors, traders, or financial consultants, for most active users showing interest in the development in capital markets this will probably not be enough. Many of them will want to perform their own analysis and price study - either only for themselves, or to also share their opinions with the public. For these users we created the section MY FINECHARTS/MY FOLDERS.
The MY FOLDERS module enables users to create their own charts in any format satisfactory to them, add their comments, notes, and analytical elements, and save them in any of their existing directories, in order to be able to come back to them in the future and work with them again. It enables them to have an overview of a whole range of assets during a business day. The user has the advantage of not having to worry about the data, they are always updated. He doesn't have to calculate various complicated market breadth indicators, which he would have to do if he was using a desktop computer. He doesn't have to look for a way to get various data into his desktop computer, and how to display data from COT reports, or data about the U.S. central bank operations. He has everything readily available. Moreover, he can also combine all the data, and evaluate them in interrelations. He does not only depend on prep-prepared REPORTS; he can create his own charts.


Figure: The figure shows the section MY FOLDERS.  We can see a user's list of already existing directories, which this user created over time. Charts of stocks, indices, and currencies can be categorized into various directories according to a variety of criteria. Created directories are alphabetized. 




In the right part of the previous figure we can see the following inscription in the box: STANDARD CHARTS. This is only one of the many sections that enables working with charts - the most important one. It contains all the most important elements and features for working with charts. Another option is to create your own directories in the COMPARATIVE CHARTS module. Here you can perform percentage comparisons of efficiency of individual assets; for example of mutual fund prices. The last module called MINICHARTS is rather auxiliary; it enables the creation of small charts in the upper bar on the home page of www.finecharts.com.  



Creating a new directory

The form for creating a new directory is located in the lower part of the MY FOLDERS page, under already existing directories. The user can choose the name of the directory, choose symbols (stocks) to insert into it, he can also choose a template by which he can set the format of newly created charts. He can change the number of symbols at any time in the future - he can delete or add symbols. In this particular case we created a directory with charts of the prices of stocks of the technology sector from the U.S. market.



The next figure shows a newly created directory with stocks from the previous figure.


Figure: A new directory appeared in the list of directories with newly created charts of the ETF´s EWA, EWC, EWH, GDX, QQQ, SPY, XLE, XLF. 



We can view all new charts at once in the mode SHOW CHARTS IN FOLDER.


Figure: SHOW CHARTS IN FOLDER mode. On the right there are buttons for working with individual charts.





We can modify the charts in the directories very simply - we can collectively choose new chart formats using the TEMPLATE function, or using the function USE (Apply setting on charts in directory) located in the graphics editor (CHARTS section). We can attach a directory created this way to a discussion when creating a discussion, or we can attach it to a published analysis (PUBLICATIONS /PUBLISHED ANALYSES). 




Comparative charts

At first sight, this section is functionally practically the same as the standard charts section. It has the same functions in terms of directory and chart management.

Figure:



Figure: A comparative chart illustrates prices of individual assets in percentages, whereas zero is chosen as the initial state - depending on the length of the period that you want to represent. For example, you can compare mutual fund prices of one manager (e.g. ING funds), or funds of the same alignment from multiple fund managers. The following figure shows an example of comparing mutual fund prices for so-called emerging markets - emerging markets like Brazil, central Europe, Russia, India, and China. At first glance we can see that the AKAT 8505 funds were the most efficient in the year 2010, which is ING Emerging Markets; the worst in this group of funds was the $AKAT 5846 AKRO stock fund of emerging economies.

Obrázek: Komparativní graf znázorňuje ceny jednotlivých aktiv v procentech , přičemž jako nula je zvolen počáteční stav - v závislosti na délce období, které chcete znázornit. Srovnat můžete například ceny podílových fondů jednoho správce (například fondy ING) nebo fondy stejného zaměření od více správců fondů. Na obrázku níže je uveden příklad srovnání cen podílových fondů pro tzv. emerging markets - tedy rozvojové trhy jako je Brazílie, střední Evropa, Rusko, Indie, Čína. Na první pohled můžeme vidět, že nejlepší výkonnost měl za rok 2010 fondy AKAT 8505, což je ING Emerging Markets, naopak nejhorší  v této skupině fondů byl fond $AKAT 5846 AKRO akciový fond nových ekonomik.




We can annotate a comparative chart just as any other chart in the STANDARD CHARTS section. We can save individual charts in the section MY DIRECTORIES. However, this section is separated from the sections DIRECTORIES, in which we keep standard charts. Therefore, MY DIRECTORIES independently contain comparative charts.

Komparativní graf můžeme anotovat úplně stejně jako každý jiný graf ze sekce STANDARDNÍ GRAFY. Můžeme jednotlivé vytvořené grafy uchovávat v sekci MOJE ADRESÁŘE. Tato sekce je však oddělená od ADRESÁŘŮ, ve kterých máme standardní grafy. Jsou to tedy samostatné, nezávislé  MOJE ADRESÁŘE  s obsahem komparativních grafů.
