October is here, and so is fall. That means colder weather and leaves changing color — what a pretty view! In TradeSmith, we offer some colorful ways to view your investments, too.

Let’s dive in!

TradeStops

In Dr. Smith’s most recent article, he examined the price history of General Electric. He detailed how even stocks for huge corporations like GE are not “widow-and-orphan” stocks, a term used to describe stocks with a relatively high degree of safety and dividend income.

In that vein, how can you find the price history for your stocks?

TradeStops packs this information neatly into the Position Card Page for you. When you’re in the program, simply click your ticker symbol to be brought to the Position Card Page. This page displays a plethora of information, including an interactive chart.

The options at the top of this chart allow you to change the timeframe for the stock. In this case, we were looking at a 1-year chart. To change the timeframe, just click one of the other options. You can also click the printer icon to print this chart. If you click the arrows, it will make the chart full screen.

CryptoTradeSmith

You can also view the price charts for your favorite cryptocurrencies the same way. Simply click a ticker symbol to be brought to the Position Card Page.

Now, if you wanted to see the chart history for a crypto that you don’t own, simply head over to the Crypto Analyzer. Fill out the form, and the results will display. On the bottom of the screen, you’ll see the price chart.

Just like the Position Card Page in TradeStops, you can change the timeframe and print from the options listed at the top of the chart. All you need do is click on the option that most appeals to you.
