StockChartsACP Plug-Ins

Plug-ins extend the functionality of StockChartsACP, allowing you to add specialized indicators and other features to the platform.

We recommend installing the free StockCharts Advanced Indicator Pack. This pack features indicators for StockChartsACP that are unavailable elsewhere on the StockCharts site, including Balance of Power, DEMA, and TTM Squeeze. We'll use this indicator pack as an example in the section below on installing free plug-ins.

StockCharts has also partnered with technical analysis experts to bring you many additional plug-ins. Free and paid plug-ins are available, and more are being added constantly. Please see the ACP Plug-Ins page in the StockCharts Marketplace for a complete list of plug-ins currently available and a sneak peek at new plug-ins coming soon.

Installing StockChartsACP Plug-Ins

To add a StockChartsACP plug-in to your account, click the Plug-In icon on the Platform Integrations menu at the bottom right. This opens a panel showing many of the available plug-ins. Click the “Get the Plug-In” button for more information on a specific plug-in, or click the “See All Plug-Ins” button at the bottom for a complete list.

When you click on a link, you'll enter the StockCharts Marketplace, where you can purchase and install plug-ins.
