Chart headers are available for clients with access to the Publishing Module which allows for information to be displayed on the chart. It can include text, values of script formulas, and your company logo and contact details - which is particularly useful if you publish reports or post to social media. All the data is completely customisable by the user.


The example above uses our logo, fundamental data, and script formulas to show year-to-date performance, % from the 52 week high, and my custom ranking value.
