This article was originally published on this site

Retail investors can now personalize their investing experience on the go with enhanced thinkorswim® charting capabilities on TD Ameritrade’s1 award-winning2 mobile applications, TD Ameritrade Mobile Trader and thinkorswim Mobile. The new features enable users to customize charts by creating drawings, accessing chart extensions, and adding company and economic events.

Charting tools allow clients to analyze economic data that have irregular patterns and better understand their current trading landscape. With enhanced charting features, users can better customize their trading platform to serve their unique investing needs.

Suite of New Charting Tools
Users now have the ability to draw directly on charts – whether it be a trend line, channel or other technical indicator – allowing users to make adjustments to existing drawings, move plot points or remove drawings. Plus, drawing sets can be saved for future use. A text note feature has also been added, so users can write annotations and reminders within all of their charts. Finally, users can add company and economic events with the chart overlays, while the chart extension feature gives users the ability to analyze trends.

Syncing and Sharing
The charting tool includes a share option that lets users publish charts to the social media outlet of their choice, such as Facebook and LinkedIn. And with the mobile app, all chart drawings sync to the thinkorswim platform via the TD Ameritrade cloud.

“We have the best mobile trading apps in the industry, which we’ve further enhanced by adding more charting tools along with a suite of new, powerful capabilities,” said Victor Jones, director of trading at TD Ameritrade. “Whether clients choose to analyze the markets using mobile or the desktop thinkorswim platform, they have the ability to design and customize their interface based on charting study and drawing preferences and technical analysis needs.”

TD Ameritrade offers easy-to-follow tutorial videos to walk users through each section of the app. Additionally, live text support connects users with a trading specialist – in real time – for help with accessing tools or to answer other questions.
