Is There Any Company That Sells Actual Charts, Not Digital

Recommended Posts

I'm not a big fan of analysis on the computer. I do all my charting by hand and I'm looking to upgrade my current routine.

 

What I'm looking for is a company that will send a real paper chart to you. I'd like to buy charts in the 3 day, 1 week, 1 month, etc. from the beginning of a few markets. My charts only go back a little over a year, and while it is very efficient for my needs, I really hate having to do analysis from before that while on the computer.

 

Yes, I understand that what I'm asking for would be a huge piece of paper. That is what is needed. I figure that if all the data is out there and already graphed, why not just print it out, but in a professional manner.

 

I suppose the market for such items is probably very small....I've searched a little, with no luck. Maybe just a nod in the right direction.

 

Thank you.

Let me add this.

 

The charts do not have to be super technical, I wouldn't HAVE to have my different oscillators on there I suppose. Just the price data in a simple OHLC.

 

Looks like I may have to call TradeStation.

I have an old friend who also has long favored / does best with simple, large paper charts. After years of doing it by hand on graph paper, he bought an 'old' / used plotter from a local engineering firm and had a programmer write code that programmically adds each day’s plot to his ~ 48” X 36” paper chart... cool ... hth

There are many companies that sell the historical data compiled in a spreadsheet. I find it hard to imagine that a company would find a business model in supplying paper copies.

 

As zdo has suggested picking up a large plotter from an engineering or architectural firm may be possible, but most firms paper plotting requirements are for large laser printers... gets kind of pricey at the sheet size you would require. You may be able to stumble across an ancient thermal printer, but I doubt it.

 

Sorry... no help what-so-ever.

It is as I assumed.

 

If I had to manually enter all the historical data it would just take too much time. Really, it's not a big deal. I suppose I'll set aside some time in the future to tend to this.

    • There is no point asking this question as we know women have now entered most of the fields of business. You might remember this ball busting study which found that women make better investors than men, because they are more risk-averse. 
    • The stock market going up is not a reflection of a healthy economy as created by rationally minded entrepreneurs and investors; it’s going up because the people who have the ability to make it go up also happen to be the ones who’ll benefit from it the most.
    • Landora This thread illustrates a couple of things that humblepieasant hopefully/probably learned 1 day/short term trading is for the few, not the many.  Finding systems that optimize win rate with risks is formidable.  Finding such systems that are also self compatible is exceedingly rare. 2 posting is expensive.  ie It really doesn’t pay short term or long term to give if you don’t got... 3 the need for the kind of “accountability”hp mentioned above is - in a word - transitional.  ie Accountability needs to be turned and referenced inward instead of spread outward... 4 hp would have been much better off trading “a small "live" account through the end of January, then a small "practice account" account beginning February, ... then back live. ... 1 Don’t just look for an edge.  Look for an edge that is also true to your nature.  If an edge is not true to your nature, you will still never be able to make it work consistently. 2 Post what you are learning and see. 3 Post what you are trading and see. 4 See.  ... maybe decades later... All the best zdo
