I think its because those links are to the current chart, and the posts are from like five years ago.

It would be nice to have been here when those charts were fresh in order to see how your picks look to the seasoned people here, but the thread is still very good education IMHO. I am sure if you look there are other threads on the site where they are posting fresh charts to have a go at.

Hey, do any of you use the new autobots that are out to spot longterm trends?

I am quite new to trading.

Is there a thread on how to navigate charting packages???

I have found this thread extremely informative but I need even more elementary help on how to naviagate charting packages.

I registered for free on ADVFN so I could use the links in this thread.

My ADVFN chart looks like this:

I cannot find on the ADVFN page how to make the display the same as the one in the link on this thread which is the preferred display:
.jpg

The preferred display was a link to the stock in post 30.
When I'm logged in it gives the current information on the stock so it is not because that post was 5 years old.

They both are displays of today's results.
Yes, I know mine is a different stock. My point is that the display of the chart is configured differently. How do I configure mine to look the same as the post 30 chart example? Mine lacks information that the preferred has.
The chart I get when I click on basic charts is a different display all together.
I'm perplexed.

Can anyone help?

Thank you.

You might want to look at the gold ETF (GLD). Be careful Trading Gold though. There's a reason people call it riding the Gold Bull. It makes drastic swings.
