How do I bookmark a chart?

Whether you're a StockCharts member or a free user, the ability to bookmark a chart can be a useful thing to know, allowing for quick access to your chart as well as the ability to save charts that you create. Please follow these steps to learn how prepare a customized link for your chart. Afterwards, you'll be able to safely bookmark the chart as you would any other webpage on your browser.

Let's begin by creating a SharpChart that contains the attributes, overlays and indicators that you want. To learn about how to create SharpCharts, please refer to our SharpCharts documentation.

Before you can bookmark a chart to your browser's “favorites” area, you will first need to click “Permalink” below the chart (as indicated with the red arrow in the above image), followed by the “Reload with Link” button in the pop-up window that subsequently appears. Now, you will have a detailed description of your chart stored in our database. The page will be reloaded with a slightly altered web address, now containing a “P number” (e.g. “P123456”). Web addresses with P numbers can be bookmarked safely. If you forget this step and simply store the original page address instead, you will see our default $INDU chart when you click your bookmark.

Once this is complete, you will able to safely bookmark your chart for easy access from your browser.
