Chart is stock market charting program. It downloads and displays market daily data and current price quotes in various styles and with many standard technical analysis indicators and averages. Data is obtained from several sources, including Barchart and Yahoo Finance (which covers most major world exchanges). Alert levels, notes, and free-form trend lines can be added to charts. Chart is at "personal project" level, which means the features are those things which interest the author, but the aims are serious. Chart is written in GNU Guile and perl, and customizations and extensions can be added using Scheme code. The main interface is the Guile Gtk GUI. An Emacs interface is included too, for viewing price quotes within Emacs, including importing into the Simple Emacs Spreadsheet (and other uses).
