Chart downloads and displays stock and commodity charts, using data from various sources, mainly Yahoo Finance.
It features various indicators and averages, and data downloading. There's tie-ins to look at indicators from Genius Trader and TA-Lib. Read more in the online manual (one web page per node, or there's a single-file HTML in the sources below). The current state is slightly just keeping-it-going and there's a couple of niggling problems (Bugs below).
Download version 269 here, either the
.tar.gz source, or a Debian package out of

There's some sort of bug in the drawing when doing Control-U download updates at the same time as viewing. It's supposed to redraw as the download proceeds and at completion, but something bad happens to cause no drawing, even on a normal "expose" window overlap and reveal. The suggested workaround is to go "n" next and "p" previous which forces a redraw. Control-L is a redraw too, but doesn't help when stuck in the bug.
The automated symbol lists (All and Alerts) sometimes get themselves jumbled or duplicate entries. Running the "Tools/Vacuum" rectifies.
