The charts can be modified to show different currency pairs such as other minor pairs and crosses on the forex market. A wide array of cryptocurrencies are available, from Bitcoin, Ehtereum, Ripple, Bitcoin Cash, and Litecoin to the newest ICO on the block. Oil, gold, and other commodities can be found as well. For those venturing away from FX, there are plenty of stocks and indices to pick from. Also, bonds and their yields are available here. The US Dollar occasionally moves alongside the benchmark 10-year Treasury yields.

There are various charting tools available and also a fully-fledged social network that enables sharing, seeing, and commenting on trade ideas that the community provides. A sign-in is required. The graphs can be expanded to a full-screen view.

Technical indicators such as the Simple Moving Average, Fibonacci levels, Bolinger Bands, the Relative Strength Index, Momentum, MACD, Stochastics, and many more can be applied. Stop-loss, take profit, and entry points can all be incorporated into the technical analysis on these charts.
