I introduced the basics of the AnyChart product family in my previous article on SitePoint. This time I will tell you about how AnyStock is helpful in visualizing stock data as well as any large date and time-based data sets (and how to use it best).
AnyChart – common chart types,
AnyMap – geo maps and seat maps,
AnyGantt – Project Gantt, Resource, and PERT charts,
AnyStock – visualization of big date/time-based data sets, the features of which are the topic of this article.
AnyStock stock charts are a special type of charts that can effectively visualize big amounts of date/time-based data. It has many special features such as zoom with Scroller UI, synchronized plots, data grouping, and so on. AnyStock is completely compatible with all other AnyChart charts, and besides having all basic stock features such as grouping, streaming, scrolling, etc., AnyStock stocks also have multiple technical indicators built-in and ability to customize them.
To put it in a nutshell, in this article I will:
explain the basics of how AnyStock works;
demonstrate the beauty of data mapping;
show how to load data directly from Google Finance into AnyStock;
provide a sample of how the data mapping mechanism helps to use data from Xignite API in AnyStock.
