What Are ChartPacks?

ChartPacks are pre-created ChartLists that you can install into your account with just a few clicks. ChartPacks can contain a single list of general-purpose charts or many ChartLists with several charts. It depends on the purpose of the ChartPack and how it was designed.

A comparatively simple example of a ChartPack is “Market in a Nutshell,” a free ChartPack with 160 general-purpose charts stored inside four ChartLists. Its goal is to help new members get started quickly with their accounts. A more complicated example is Gatis Roze's “Tensile Trading,” a subscription-based ChartPack with over 1000 charts organized into over 90 different ChartLists.

StockCharts has several different kinds of ChartPacks available to Extra and Pro members, including:

  • Free ChartPacks. These can be installed from the Your Account page.

  • Paid ChartPacks. These can be purchased from the StockCharts Store.

  • Subscription ChartPacks. They can also be purchased from the StockCharts Store. The purchase price also includes a limited number of updates to the contents of the ChartPack at future points in time.

  • Specialized ChartPacks. Available via special offers like SCU seminars or 3rd-party classes.

Except for Subscription ChartPacks, once you have installed a ChartPack, you can uninstall and/or reinstall it anytime. Subscription ChartPacks cannot be reinstalled once the subscription expires.

Installing Free ChartPacks

Install any of our free ChartPacks by going to the StockCharts Store, or accessing them from Your Account page and scrolling down to the Add-Ons section.

To see all the ChartPacks available to install and use, click the See All Add-Ons link on the top right. You'll find our full collection in the StockCharts Marketplace. From here, you can select any Add-On you wish to install.

To manage the Add-Ons, select the one you want to change from Your Account page or the list in the StockCharts Store. To learn more about a ChartPack, click the See More button.

If you want to install any of our Free ChartPacks, click the “Install” button. If you've already installed a ChartPack, you can uninstall it.

Note: ChartPacks can only be installed into your unused ChartLists slots. If you've already created the maximum number of ChartLists, you must delete some to install the ChartPack. The ChartLists display on Your Dashboard shows how many Lists in Use you have.

Installing Paid ChartPacks

Paid ChartPacks can only be purchased from the ChartPacks area of the Store.

When your ChartPack purchase is complete, you will need to wait until your order is validated. That process may take several hours, depending on when you place your order. Once the order has been validated, we will add your ChartPack to your account, and you will receive an email acknowledging the installation. It will then appear in your list of installed ChartPacks on the Your Account page. It will also appear on the ChartPacks page, along with any free ChartPacks.

Using ChartPacks

Once a ChartPack has been installed, you will see one or more new ChartLists in the “Your ChartLists” area of the “Members” page. You can choose any of the corresponding “View” options from the dropdown menus in that table (e.g., “10 Per Page”) to view the contents of those new ChartLists.

Note: Typically, the ChartLists in a ChartPack all begin with a common letter code to ensure that those lists appear together in the “Your ChartLists” area of Your Dashboard.

Note: When a ChartPack is installed into your account, its contents are copied into your account. You can change them, delete them, rearrange them, etc., just like you would any other item. If you change the items in a ChartPack and later decide that you want the original versions back, you can use the Re-Install button for that ChartPack to re-copy the ChartPack's items into your account.

Removing ChartPacks

You can remove any previously installed ChartPacks from your account by returning to the “ChartPacks” page and clicking the Remove button next to the ChartPack in question.
