What's in this upgrade

In this upgrade we have added a new charting types Heiken Ashi and Seasonality.

Heiken Ashi Charts

Heikin-Ashi, alternatively spelled Heiken-Ashi, translates to "average bar" in Japanese. This technique is employed  in securities trading to identify market trends and forecast future prices. It enhances the readability of candlestick charts, facilitating easier analysis of trends.

For instance, traders can utilize Heikin-Ashi charts to determine opportune moments to stay in trades during a persistent trend and exit when the trend undergoes a pause or reversal. Given that most profits arise during trending markets, accurate trend prediction becomes essential.

Several distinctions exist between the two chart types, as illustrated in the above charts. Heikin-Ashi presents a smoother appearance as it essentially computes an average of the movement. Notably, Heikin-Ashi candles tend to stay red in a downtrend and green in an uptrend, providing a clearer trend indication. In contrast, conventional candlesticks alternate colors even when the price is predominantly moving in one direction.

Seasonality Charts in action

Seasonality chart type allows traders to view the percentage change on any ticker over multiple years on one chart​. The average of the years displayed is also charted along with the current year.  

The Seasonality​ Chart has an easy toggle to remove or add up to 15 years of data and add/remove the average line.  The date key also allows you to change the right hand date of the chart and adjusts the percentage chart appropriately. 

This upgrade also provides some bug fixes, cleans up some expired service ​elements and provides a more robust key number system that will avoid key errors due to operating system or other changes.

This Seasonal Chart shows the trading period through the 21st trading day in May for 8 trading years 2013 - 2020 with the average line being in white. The seasonal trend that Jay mentions can be seen in this chart. The vertical scale is percentage change. ​
