Fast and accurate annotations tools allow you to quickly mark up support and resistance levels, Fibonacci retracement levels – and much more! Quickly add lines, text, measurements etc. And you can just as easily get rid of them – simply hove over your annotation and then click on the eraser.

The charting module offers a wide range of built-in Trend indicators, Moving Averages, Oscillators, Volume Studies – and more!
