MarketBrowser Appendix A -
MarketBrowser AE allows you to save stock, fund, metals, currencies, ETFs, and index names as favorites. To add a symbol to your favorites, just right-click a chart and select 'Add to Favorites'. Then, when you want to chart one of your favorites, pull down the 'Favorites' menu and make your selection. MarketBrowser will then add this to the active chart.
MarketBrowser lets you toggle easily between different charting styles. The following picture shows 'Graph Style' toolbar button; displayed as a red line over a black histogram.
Clicking this button will toggle your chart between a line representation, traditional bars, Japanese candlesticks and a tabular view (which shows the actual numerical values instead of a chart).
You can also use:
MarketBrowser AE gives you plenty of control over your layout. Manage your layout with the 'Windows' menu items (or shortcut to many of these options by right-clicking the mouse):
Add Windows/Monitors... ~ Use to add windows/monitors to your worksheet (increasing total number of charts). New windows are inserted after the active chart.
Delete Windows/Monitors... ~ Use to delete windows/monitors from your worksheet (reducing total number of charts). Windows are removed starting with the active chart.
Display... ~ Enter a list of charts you wish to display, thus hiding (not deleting) all others and allowing you to concentrate on those still visible. Use a comma to separate windows, and .. to include windows between 2 numbers. For Example: "W1,W5..W8" will display windows W1 and also W5 through W8 and hide all others.
Display All ~ Use to displays all charts; showing any that were previously hidden.
Clear Window ~ Empty the chart out of the active window only.
Clear All ~ Empty the charts out of all windows in your worksheet.
Tile ~ Automatically adjusts the number of rows and columns to best fill the worksheet space and leave as little empty space as possible. You'll only see an effect if your current worksheet setup leaves unused space in the lower right corner.
Arrange ~ Will fill any left over worksheet space by expanding a nearby window/chart into the empty space.
Columns... ~ Allows you to set/change the number of columns in your worksheet layout. You can choose to have between 1 and 8 columns.
Zoom/Unzoom ~ This option allows you to change between a multi-chart (unzoomed) display and a single chart (zoomed) display of the active window.
Auto Legend ~ Enables you to activate/deactivate the legend on a per chart bases. The legend will appear in the top left corner of zoomed charts displaying the current day's price information.
MarketBrowser can be customized in many ways to suit your needs and preferences. The main choices governing settings are accessible from the 'File' -> 'Preferences' menu options. The following choices, as displayed in the screenshot, are available to customize your MarketBrowser settings.
Your Chart Label is the dark blue title bar at the top of each chart.
You can customize this label in MarketBrowser AE. To customize Chart Labels, simply navigate to the menu option: 'File' -> 'Preferences' -> 'Monitors...' which will bring up the dialog box displayed below (right). Notice the 3 Monitor Label Settings:
This option allows you to control which information fields are displayed or hidden in the market monitor. The menu option shows the titles of the fields displayed from left to right. So the fields displayed in the .COMPX image above are those selected in the Label Style. From left to right they are:
The three dashes in the Label Style image right-justifies the field that comes after it (in this case, the %Change). Other information you can display or hide are:
Color in Label:
Prices climb and the information on the label turns green. They fall, and you'll see red. Stay even and white text will rule the day. This option lets you choose which items on the bar are color coded:
Turning the window numbers on (e.g. "W1") can be helpful when building custom formulas, but sometimes you want them off. Use this option to hide or display the window numbers!
