Loading a Chart
To get started with Technician, simply type a symbol in the text box in the upper left of the screen.
As you begin to type, Technician will provide you with a list of matching securities. Either click on the desired symbol from the dropdown list, or continue typing the full symbol and hit enter.
To view a different symbol, delete the current symbol by clicking the X in the right portion of the text box.
[Keyboard Shortcut: Hit “x” to clear the symbol and begin typing a new one.]
[NOTE: Most chart interactions are unavailable until a symbol is entered.]
You can change the period of a chart by clicking the periodicity indicator to the right of the symbol textbox.
Select among the preset periods or set a custom period.
On a touch screen device: Change periodicity by placing three fingers on the screen and dragging them left or right. Dragging left will increase periodicity and dragging right will decrease it.
[Keyboard Shortcut: Hit “p” to increase periodicity or “Shift + p” to decrease periodicity.]
Changing Chart Types
By default, Technician displays candlestick charts. To change the chart type, select “Options” to bring up a menu of available chart types, which includes:
- Colored Bar
- Hollow Candle
- Range Chart
While most charts display a data point for each increment of a given period of time, range charts display a data bar for a given change in price. Because of this, selecting “Range Chart” from the “Options” menu will automatically alter the x-axis and override your periodicity selection. Unchecking “Range Chart” will return you to your previous chart type and periodicity settings.
Selecting Chart Options
In addition to changing the type of chart displayed, the “Options” menu also allows you to turn on and off other visual aspects of the chart, such as:
- Flip – Flips the chart upside down.
- Gap – Displays gaps on screen, marking gaps that have not been filled with a horizontal line extending into the future.
- Adjust Prices – Displays chart using actual prices or prices adjusted historically for splits.
- Log Scale – Displays chart using semi-logarithmic scale for the y-axis (price).
- Ext Hours – Displays data from extended hours sessions.
- Hide Future – Suppresses data for future dates.
When selected, the box next to an option will fill with a check mark. To turn off a selected option, click on the “Options” drop down and uncheck the corresponding box.
Navigating a Chart
As you hover over the chart, a set of crosshairs will indicate where your cursor is on the chart. Markers on the x- and y-axes will move to denote the date/time and price of your cursor’s current location.
On a touch screen device: Placing one finger on the screen and sliding it around will cause the crosshairs to appear.
Clicking on the down arrow box near the symbol entry textbox will pull open a box with more details about your cursor’s position, including:
- ATR (Average True Range)
Clicking the up arrow below the crosshair information box will collapse the box.
You can turn off crosshairs altogether by clicking the crosshair icon on the top menu bar.
Scrolling the Chart
[Keyboard Shortcut: Use the arrow keys to scroll by single periods.]
On a desktop or laptop, simply click, hold, and drag to move anywhere on the chart.
On a touch screen device:
- Scroll through the chart in a given direction by dragging two fingers on the screen.
- Reposition the chart vertically by double tapping the chart.
- Reposition the chart horizontally by double tapping again.
[Note: If crosshairs are disabled, you only need to swipe with one finger to scroll.]
The touch screen scrolling functionality also works on Apple trackpads.
You can go to a specific date on a chart by clicking the calendar icon in the upper left corner of the chart. Enter dates in DD-MM-YYYY format.
If you’ve moved into the past on a chart, you’ll see a forward arrow appear in the bottom left of the charting window. Click on it to return to the most current data point.
[Keyboard Shortcut: Hit “home” on a PC or “fn + left arrow” on a Mac to return to the most recent period.]
Zooming In and Out
[Keyboard Shortcut: Hit “ctrl + left/right arrow” on a PC or “opt + left/right arrow” on a Mac to zoom in and out.]
Technician offers multiple ways to zoom in and out on the chart.
On a desktop or laptop, zoom in or out by clicking the plus or minus buttons at the bottom of the chart. You can also zoom in or out on either axis individually by clicking, holding, and dragging on the axis.
On a touch screen device:
- Zoom in or out by using the standard pinch and expand gesture (placing two fingers on the screen and pinch or expand your fingers).
- Alter an axis by pinching and expanding on the axis.
- Reposition the chart vertically by double tapping the chart.
- Reposition the chart horizontally by double tapping again.
The touch screen zoom functionality also works with Apple trackpads.
Drawing on the Chart
Technician offers a full set of drawing tools so that you can annotate the chart, insert support and resistance lines, etc.
Click on the “Draw” button on the top menu bar to access drawing tools.
When you select a drawing tool, a drawing toolbar with specific settings for that tool will appear below the main toolbar.
Each drawing tool will allow you to change the style and color of the drawing or annotation.
Click on the color box in the selected drawing tool toolbar to choose a color for your drawing or annotation.
Both the Rectangle and Ellipse tools allow you to select a shape fill color in a similar fashion.
Click on the line dropdown to choose your line weight and style.
Clicking the magnet icon before using a drawing tool makes the tool “stick” to the data points on the chart. On bar and candle charts, the drawing tool will stick to the open, high, low, or close points.
In the toolbar for some drawing tools you’ll see a reading of the number of bars and the price difference (as an absolute value and a percentage) between the selected points on the chart.
[Note: You can also get this period and price information without marking up your chart by choosing “Measure” from the “Draw” dropdown menu.]
Click the “Undo” button in the drawing toolbar to undo the previous chart interaction. Click “Done” when you are finished with that drawing tool. The drawing will stay on the chart after clicking “Done”.
As soon as a drawing is added to the chart, it is automatically saved. Whenever you pull up a symbol (during any session and on any device), your previous drawings and annotations on that symbol’s chart will always appear until you remove them.
As you scroll through a chart, zoom in or out, or manipulate the axes, your drawings will stay mathematically true.
To remove a drawing, hover over the drawing on the chart until it is highlighted in bright red and an information box appears. Right-clicking will remove that drawing element.
At the bottom of the “Draw” dropdown menu are the options to “Clear Drawings” or “Hide Drawings”. Clicking “Clear Drawings” will remove all drawings and annotations from the chart. This cannot be reversed. Clicking “Hide Drawings” will temporarily remove drawings and annotations from the chart until you select “Show Drawings” from the dropdown menu.
[Keyboard Shortcut: Hit “a” to open the Annotation toolbar.]
The Annotation drawing tool allows you to type notes and messages right on the chart. Select “Annotation” from the “Draw” dropdown menu to open the Annotation toolbar. Before adding an annotation, you can stylize your font by clicking the font buttons in the toolbar: italicize, bold, font size, and font type.
To add an annotation, click anywhere in the chart and begin typing. Click the “Save” button to keep the annotation or click the “Cancel” button to discard it.
Click and drag an annotation to move it to another location on the chart. Right-click on an annotation to remove it. Annotations will also be removed when you select “Clear Drawings” from the “Draw” dropdown.
[Keyboard Shortcut: Hit “b” to open the Bell Curve toolbar.]
Perform Market Profile-style analysis by creating price action bell curves for any time period or periodicity. Position the crosshairs at the beginning of the time period you wish to analyze, then click on the end of the time period you want to analyze. Right-click to delete.
You can choose the ratios that you would like displayed by selecting the “Settings” button in the Fibonacci drawing toolbar. Technician’s default ratios are: -0.618, -0.5, -0.382, 0, 0.382, 0.5, 0.618, 1, 1.382, and 1.618.
[Keyboard Shortcut: Hit “l” to open the Line toolbar.]
The Line tool allows you to connect two data points with the ends of the line extending infinitely in either direction. Select the tool from the Draw dropdown and simply sequentially click on two data points on the chart.
To edit the line, hover over it, grab a data point, and move it to another location on the chart. Right-click on the line to delete it.
[Keyboard Shortcut: Hit “h” to open the Horizontal Line toolbar.]
Make a perfectly straight horizontal line with a single click. Select this tool from the “Draw” dropdown and click the point on the chart through which you’d like the line to travel. (Clicking the magnet icon in the drawing toolbar will make it easier to select your desired point.) The line will extend infinitely in either direction, leaving a price marker on the y-axis.
Hover over the line and grab the data point to move it. Right-click the line to delete it.
[Keyboard Shortcut: Hit “v” to open the Vertical Line toolbar.]
To mark a moment in time with a vertical line, select the tool from the “Draw” dropdown and click a point on the chart. (Activating the magnet tool in the drawing toolbar can be useful when selecting data points.) The line will extend infinitely and create a date marker on the x-axis.
To move the line, hover over it, grab the data point, and move it to another location on the chart. Right-click on the line to delete it.
[Keyboard Shortcut: m]
The Measure tool allows you to easily calculate the price and period distance between two data points on a chart without leaving marks on your chart. After selecting the tool from the “Draw” dropdown menu, click on a data point on the chart. Now, as you move over the chart, a line will extend between the selected point and your cursor. In the drawing toolbar, you’ll see a read-out of the price difference (as an absolute value and a percentage) and number of periods (bars) between the selected point and your cursor. Clicking on another point will lock the measurement data in the toolbar and remove the line from the chart.
[Note: Using the magnet tool from the drawing toolbar will allow you to easily select precise data points on the chart.]
[Keyboard Shortcut: Hit “j” to open the Projection toolbar.]
The Projection tool is a unique Technician tool that allows you to test your price predictions by projecting indicators and moving averages against hypothetical future price movements.
With your desired studies and indicators displayed on the chart, select the Projection tool from the “Draw” dropdown menu. Click anywhere on the chart to automatically begin your projection line at the close point of the last period on the chart. Click on the chart to the right of this end point to draw your prediction of the future. As you click, you’ll see your studies and indicators recalculated on the chart to account for this hypothetical future.
You can add as many segments to your projection as you’d like as long as each subsequent click is further into the future than the previous. To finish your projection, click the “Done” button in the drawing toolbar. Right-click on the projection line to delete it.
If you add a study or indicator to a chart that you have drawn a projection on, the study/indicator will automatically display into the hypothetical future based on your projection.
[Keyboard Shortcut: Hit “r” to open the Ray toolbar.]
The Ray tool allows you to create a line anchored on one point and extending infinitely in one direction. Select the tool from the “Draw” dropdown and click on the starting point of your ray. Then choose another point through which you’d like the line to pass.
To edit or move the ray, hover over the line to show the selected nodes and then click and drag on a node. Right-click on the ray to delete it.
[Note: Using the magnet tool will help you precisely select your data points.]
Highlight notable areas of the chart with the Rectangle tool. Select it from the “Draw” dropdown menu and choose your line and fill colors. Click on two points on the chart to create your rectangle. The price and period data appearing in the drawing toolbar reflects the differences between the two corners of the rectangle that you created with your clicks.
Edit the rectangle by hovering over it and grabbing one of the corner nodes. Move the rectangle by grabbing the filled area of the rectangle. Right-click on the shape to delete it.
The Ellipse tool allows you to note particular areas of the chart with a circle or oval. After selecting the tool from the “Draw” dropdown menu, choose your line and fill colors. Then, click where you want the center of your ellipse to be and move the cursor away from it to expand the shape. Click again to complete the shape.
To edit the ellipse, hover over it and pull on the highlighted node that will appear just outside of the shape. To move the ellipse to another spot on the chart, click and drag from the inside of the shape. Right-click on the ellipse to delete it.
[Keyboard Shortcut: Hit “s” to open the Segment toolbar.]
The Segment tool creates lines between two points. Unlike lines created by the Line or Ray tools, segments are limited by their two points and do not extend infinitely in either direction.
To create a segment, select the tool from the “Draw” dropdown and click on the desired beginning and end points on the chart. Edit the segment by grabbing and moving the end points. Right-click the segment to delete it.
[Note: Using the magnet tool will allow for more precise segments.]
Keep track of your thoughts on a chart or symbol by using Notes in Technician. Access the Notes panel by clicking the button in the bottom-left corner of the app.
Select the “Intraday”, “Daily”, or “Weekly” tab on the left side of the panel to write notes for those corresponding periods. The upper toolbar of the Notes panel provides familiar word processing formatting functions. Format your text with bold, italics, underline, or strikethrough. Center, justify, or right- or left- align your text. Add bulleted or numbered lists. Even add and remove links to relevant articles.
Notes for a particular symbol will be automatically saved and accessible any time that symbol is accessed on any device. To remove your notes, delete the text or click “Clear All” in the upper right corner of the panel.
Use the gray bar in the upper center of the Notes panel to expand or reduce its size. Click the “X” in the upper left corner to remove the notes from view.
Compare, Stops, and Overlay
By default, the Compare side of the “Compare/Overlay” button is selected. This allows you to easily compare symbols that have significantly different price axes. Your compared symbol will appear as a line representing the percentage deviation from the leftmost data point appearing in the chart window. A marker will appear on the y-axis noting the percentage deviation of the final point on the chart.
You also have the ability to define the point(s) at which your comparison begins by clicking “Add” in the “Stops” section of the “Compare” dropdown and clicking anywhere in the chart. This will create a vertical dotted line marking the point on which the comparison line to the right is based. You can add multiple stops to a chart. To remove a stop, hover over it and right-click. To simultaneously remove all stops you’ve added to a chart, click the “Clear” button in the “Stops” section of the “Compare” dropdown.
If you prefer to just see the shape of the compared symbol on top of the original symbol, select “Overlay” on the “Compare/Overlay” button before adding the comparison to the chart.
By checking the “Correlation” box in the “Compare” dropdown, you can add a correlation indicator to the bottom of the chart to show how closely the movements of the two symbols align over time.
The Correlation window is automatically added below the chart, but you can move it to the top by clicking the up arrow in the upper left corner of the window. You can also increase the size of the Correlation window by clicking and dragging the gray tab in the middle of the window. Click the “X” in the Correlation window to close it.
The correlation coefficient defaults to 50 periods, but you can enter in any number in the Correlation Coefficient text box to indicate the number of past periods you want the correlation line to consider at any point in time.
To delete a comparison line on the chart, right-click on it or click the “X” next to the symbol in the “Current Symbols” section of the “Compare” dropdown.
Adding Studies and Indicators
Technician offers a comprehensive selection of studies and indicators, from the commonly used to the niche. Watch this video tutorial, peruse the study write-ups in our Resource Center, or read below for more information.
Click on the “Studies” dropdown from the center of the main toolbar to see all 80+ studies and indicators. Click on one to add it to your chart. Note that studies and indicators, like drawing and annotations, will remain on your chart for a specific symbol any time you open it on any device until you delete them from the chart.
[Note: For the purpose of this user’s guide, we will use the terms “study” and “indicator” interchangeably.]
Some indicators will appear overlaid with your chart. Hovering over an overlaid indicator will bring up a small window with information about the input parameters. To delete an overlaid indicator, right-click on it.
Other indicators will appear in separate windows below the chart. These windows can be moved and resized with the buttons in their upper left corners. The up arrow will reorder the window so that it is above the window that it was below. The down arrow will move it below the window that it was above.
Click the opposite-facing arrows to expand the indicator’s window and temporarily obscure other indicators from view. Click it again to restore your previous view.
The pencil button will allow you to edit the indicator’s parameters.
The “X” button will remove the indicator from the view.
For more details about how to use specific studies and indicators, visit the Technician Resource Center.

Changing Chart Themes
Technician gives you the option to personalize the appearance of your charting experience with custom themes. This is in addition to the ability to customize the color and style of your drawings, annotations, comparisons, and indicators.
To access theme settings, click on the gear icon in the upper right corner of the app. In the dropdown menu you can toggle between the default “Dark” theme with a black background and the “Light” theme with a white background.
Click the “New Custom Theme” button to create your personalized charting appearance.
In the custom theme window you can select the colors of the candles, bars, lines, candle wicks, or candle borders. In each case, the left color box is for downward trends and the right is for upward trends. You can remove candle borders altogether by unchecking the box next to “Border”.
“Monotone Bar/Line” is the color of your chart when you choose the simple bar chart (rather than the colored bar) or line chart option from the “Options” dropdown.
Choose the color of your mountain charts and uncheck the “Gradient” box to make the area under the line a solid (rather than fading) color.
You can also alter the colors of the background, date dividers, and axis text. Choosing the same color for your background and your grid lines will visibly remove grid lines from your chart.
Once you’ve set your theme settings, save it by typing a theme name into the textbox and clicking “Save Theme”. This theme will now appear in the “Settings” dropdown below the “New Custom Theme” button. Click on the text to switch to that theme. Click the “X” next to the name to delete it. To edit, click “New Custom Theme” and save the new theme with the same name as the old one, thus overwriting the old theme.
Accessing Settings and Help
Access your account settings by clicking the profile icon in the top right corner of the app. In this menu, you can logout of your Technician account or connect to your Technician-affiliated brokerage account to begin trading from the chart.
Clicking “Manage My Account” will take you to a window with information about your account, including if you subscribe to any of Technician’s advanced toolkits. (If you do subscribe to an advanced toolkit like Visual Earnings, this screen provides a link to manage your payment method or cancel your subscription.) You can also update your Technician account password from this screen.
Additionally, you can alter your time zone by clicking the gear icon and “Change Timezone”. You can let Technician use your current location to determine the time zone or you can select your own from the scrolling list.
For quick help tips on how to use the Technician app, click the question mark icon in the top right corner. This will pull up useful notes throughout the app screen. These notes will change depending on which windows or panels you have open at the time. To remove the notes, click the question mark icon again.
You’ll find additional quick help by clicking the gear icon and selecting “App Help + Settings”. In the resulting window, click the numbered headers to show more information about the subject. At the bottom of the window, you can select the data that you want Technician to use to populate your charts.
