This list features the five best free stock chart websites in order taking into consideration the following characteristics:
- Professional scalability
- Ease of use
Screenshots are also provided for each site.
TradingView.com offers a clean and flexible way of looking at stock charts. These stocks charts are community driven to provide analysis in the form of optional annotations on each chart. Community aside, TradingView also supports extensively detailed charts, not too mention better pricing than StockCharts.com for those who want access to advanced featured and/or real-time data.
Stockcharts.com takes a high spot for its simplicity, cleanliness, and overall scalability. It is the most widely utilized free stock charting site for financial bloggers alongside TradingView and is also the primary charting service used here for our weekly market recaps. The site offers a wide variety of different free tools and ways to analyze any stock chart desired. For investors who want historical charting and further analysis they can upgrade to a paid subscription.
And in third we have FINVIZ.com which is my #1 favorite site for screening stocks. FINVIZ charts are simple, easy to read, and include technical analysis overlays on them by default which is something the other chart providers do not do, making it unique.
4. Yahoo Finance
Yahoo Finance provides a similar charting service to Google Finance just less the extra bullet points highlighting key dates. Yahoo’s charting service is clear, easy to use, and great for regular investors which is why it is on this list. Yahoo Finance is also the go to place for quotes, research, news, etc.
5. Google Finance
Google Finance provides a very clean charting solution for investors. What makes Google’s charts so nice is the ability to simply Google for the ticker and instantly have a stupid simple chart pull up, e.g. “Apple stock chart”.
