Data Compatibility

No data download is required

Incredible Charts automatically fetches individual packets of data from the server as you chart each stock – no daily data download is required.

Data Compatibility

Incredible Charts compressed data format is not compatible with other charting software.
For this reason:

  • You cannot export data from Incredible Charts for use in other charting software or conversion to other formats.
  • You can import data from external websites (e.g. Yahoo Finance).
  • You can load data from disk.

File Sizes

File sizes are 20 to 50 Kb and 50 to 100 Kb (S&P 500) for indices.

If you select Time Period >> Chart 3 Years Data, file sizes are reduced to between 10 and 20 Kb.
