Top 4 Stock Chart Services, Subscription Based

Since I posted earlier this week on 5 Places to Find Free Stock Charts, I figured those who want to spend a few dollars and get a subscription based service should have some options too.

The following are sites with subscription based stock chart services:

(Note: pricing as of September 2007)

  • Dailygraphs.com, $720 - $999 per year. I personally use dailygraphs.com and love their service as it comes from the guys behind investors.com. The charts are nothing short of fantastic and the tools that come with it are pristine. $720 will buy you a year subscription to their charting service, and for $999 you can get the full package which includes access to not only the stock charts but also a custom screener (designed for CANSLIM traders), and access to the daily graphs Industry Groups. Too bad they don't have an affiliate program.
  • eSignal.com, $1100 - $4000 per year. I haven't used eSignal's services before, but I have heard of them quite a few times. They have three different packages: eSignal Premier, Premier plus, and the Advanced GET Edition. Every package comes with optional addons and includes more than just charting software. Quotes, streamers, and the like are thrown into the mix.
  • AIQsystems.com, $240 per year. This is the charting service that Dan Zanger from chartpattern.com uses. From what I see of AIQ's charting software from Zanger's website it seems to be pretty good. The charts are setup fairly easily and their are a variety of technical analysis indicators available.
  • Stockcharts.com, $120 - $360 per year. Stockcharts.com also provides a free charting service for those who prefer free, but there subscription based service has some added features. A basic account will allow you to store charts on their servers to refer to later, the Extra! charting will give you access to conducting custom technical scans, if you up to the ExtraRT! charting you can get real time streaming for all stock charts.

    I currently use esignal for my trading activities and it is IMO the best. Clean data, and very fast.

    AIQ is an inexpensive alternative if you're looking for a charting program to build scans, but I do not care for their recommended data provider...the name eludes me right now, but I remember them being slow.

    I second your thoughts on Dailygraphs. It is great tool.

    I have yet to try eSignal out, now you have my curious. Which package do you use?

    Hi Blain

    What is the real advantage of paying for such a service if you can open stock charts and read them manually?
