Bookmarking a BigCharts Stock Graph

Last updated January 19, 2011 - Send Feedback

This discussion assumes the web site BigChart.com, which is what I use.

This page shows how to bookmark a chart, adding it to a group of related stocks.

Step 1. Click the ***NewChart*** button, as shown below.

See instructions for adding this NewChart button. If you don’t start at the main page, you’ll bookmark the wrong page— very confusing.

Step 2. Enter the stock symbol for the desired chart, then click Advanced Chart.

BigCharts.com lets you enter a company name, and will suggest possible choices.

Canadian stocks should be prefixed with “CA:”, Australian stocks with “AU:”. Keep in mind that there can be symbol conflicts, so pay attention.

I prefer the Advanced Chart. Use whatever you prefer.

Enter the stock symbol you wish to graph

Note: Some stocks are listed on more than one exchange. For example, the symbol for Rare Element Resources is CA:RES on the Toronto Stock Exchange, or REE on the American Stock Exchange (AMEX). Or CA:PNP vs PNPFF, for Pinetree Capital. Keep in mind that volume and price are in Canadian or US dollars depending on the symbol used, and that volume is for that exchange; you might want both symbols for stocks that are not just US stocks.

Step 3. Bookmark the chart which has just been displayed.

Choose Bookmarks => Add Bookmark… to bookmark the page. You can enter anything you like for the name of the page, it is a good idea to use the stock symbol or name. Just start typing the name, and it will replace the default (and useless) suggested generic name.

Be sure to choose the group into which you want the chart saved. If you don’t already have a group, you can create a bookmarks group.
