E*TRADE offers excellent stock charts. Charts are clear and attractive both in large and small sizes. There are over forty technical and fundamental indicators to please all investor types. Having the ability to save chart types is easy to setup and very useful. Drawing tools are limited to simple lines. For a web based charting tool, E*TRADE is first class.
