Really like the symbol info box.
How does the distance to resistance/support get activated? Is it soley by the S/R drawing tool??
That is a really cool tool.

Are all fundamental values from yahoo finance? I am currently using the finviz and morningstar downloaders which are great.

Is the symbol info page customizable?

on another note,I have ^vix in my database,but my filters wont let me chart it.What filter is restricting me?

Best Answer

The resistance/support values are created by the S/R drawing tool only.

The symbol info box displays symbol information + custom database data (last entry). Only fields, with the snapshot option enabled, are displayed.
Note that you must download data again to get the snapshot data.

Regarding "^VIX", which filters are you referring to?
If you are referring to the top filters (next to "Select a symbol") then make sure "Tradable" option is checked.

I am finding that any symbol with a ^ only can be charted when the Tradable fillter is turned off.(either a dot or blank)
Only the active option should be selected. Do you agree?

Also,I never selected snapshot option as you described,but I do have fundamental data in the symbol info which is great.
I was wondering how it got there,and if the data was from yahoo or one of my custom databases.(morningstar vs finviz)

This is because indices are not tradable (You update the "tradable" field by selecting "Symbol -> Update Symbol").

It appears I have two databases that get Finviz data.The one called "Valuation ratios" (fund evaluation)has the snapshot feature enabled.It must be automatic,as I was not aware of this feature.Its excellent...thank you
