Advanced GET - Charting
There are several ways to load a chart:
- Left click on File, then New Chart
- Press F5 key
- Click the New Chart Button at the top left
Using the quick load feature of Advanced GET, you can change the issue on the chart that you are viewing by typing the symbol and pressing Enter. If you want to change the interval also, just type the symbol, add a comma and a space, then the interval and hit Enter. So to get a 60-minute chart of MSFT, you would type MSFT, 60. To quick load a Daily, Weekly, or Monthly chart, you would first hit the comma key on the keyboard, then type D, W or M for the time frame you want to load. Note: GET End of Day is limited to 60, D, W, and M intervals.
Loading Multiple Charts
You can load multiple charts by repeatedly opening new charts and utilizing the Microsoft® Windows® tile feature (click on Window in the menu bar, the click on either Tile Horizontally or vertically). You can also manually resize each window to create a custom size.

Creating and Applying Chart Templates

To create a Chart Template, first load a chart of any symbol and add all of the studies and indicators you would like to appear in the Template. Next, Right Click anywhere on the chart itself and select Templates from the menu that appears. In the Name section of the Templates window, type whatever name you would like to assign to this Template and hit the Save button.
To apply a Chart Template, load a chart and select your symbol and other chart attributes as normal. Next, put a check mark next to Apply Template, and then select the Template you would like to apply by clicking on the Drop Down arrow in the Apply Template field. To finish the procedure, click on the Load button.
To apply a Template to an Existing Chart, right click anywhere on the chart and select Template from the menu. In the next window that appears, select the Template you would like to apply and hit the Load button. The Template will be applied to the chart automatically for you.
