Why can't Fool / CAPS have decent looking charts...?



August 06, 2010 – Comments (7) | RELATED TICKERS: C , HAR , TS

Please don't tell me you already have charts.

Do you really think a serious investor / trader / TA guy would call this a chart?

Come on MF, is that really the best you can do?

You already have great blogs, pretty good screener,... why can't you also have decent looking (useful) charts?

Please do something about it. Make this a great one-stop-investing-learning-research site.

Thank you,

Well, we can do a little better with the charting tab:

But I agree we can improve here.

Have a look at the charts offered by , I almost subscribed but then opted for your services .... Charts was a big negative when doing the comparison.


Thanks for listening

I agree, I detest the main chart they use and the lack of ability to manipulate for comparison and I hate the percent garbage.   The chart tab is a little better, but I also dislike using it because for some reason things seem to take more time then they should to load.

That chart is funny as hell, it's like a toy.  Motley Fool is great though.  I had to laugh at this.

nah, if they changed it, it would go against the whole ugly, but barely funtional tools theme. jk. I really do like CAPS/TMF but it would be nice to get a real chart.

I have to switch over to google to use their charts for a stock.

TMF should make the chart dynamic, not 1d, 3m whattever.
