Works great, but requires IE or FF
I am an avid Chrome user and would prefer to stick with my main browser when viewing live charts. The site uses SilverLight, and I am not sure if this will ever be supported by Chrome. That said, I think FreeStockCharts is one of the best sites for real-time figures. The interface reminds me of thinkorswim. I'm sure you'll find it familiar if you've used any reasonably professional trading interface. The large ads on the right side are a bit annoying. The charts can be rather small as well, so I recommend a large screen. One thing that sets this service apart from others is the large number of indicators that can be applied to the charts.

Free, available and fun.
First of all, it is free web charting platforms so i automatically like it.

I actually love using the free version of FreeStockCharts.com

I read some reviews about it not working on chrome. I use Macbook and it runs perfectly.

overall and in general I like stockcharts.com for long term trades because it allows me to see the stock's performance and movement in fine detail.

One of the best web charting platforms
This review is strictly for the free version of FreeStockCharts.com. For $20/mo, you get a much more advanced platform, with many features pulled from TC2000.

When I'm on my work computer, either in the office or on the VPN, I am unable to access ThinkOrSwim. Unfortunately, TD Ameritrade's website is very limited unless you use their Trade Architect platform. This creates a new challenge as Trade Architect not only requires a ton of bandwidth, but it is also Flash based. It's virtually impossible to use and frequently crashes my browser.

I checked out BigCharts.com (Flash based), BarChart.com, StockCharts.com, FinViz, Trading View, and Yahoo Finance to see which is the best for my needs.

Since FreeStockCharts is Silverlight-based, you will not be able to use it with Chrome. On my Macbook using Safari, it runs like a dream. There is no lag at all when resizing the chart or indicator windows. It loads very fast and I love the tabbed view for looking at multiple stocks. You also have access to a ton of indicator, although you will have to change the default settings for some. For example, RSI defaults to 50 period, instead of the standard 14.

With the free version, you cannot create custom watch lists; although you can create a portfolio and even link to your TD Ameritrade account to monitor your portfolio. However, they do have a ton of prebuilt wish lists, like every S&P 500 stock or every Dow component. You can also have a scrolling ticker list running across the top of your screen.

Unfortunately, the firewall on my work computer blocks the site, so I can only play around with it on my Macbook at home.

On my work computer, Trading View seems to be the best solution for my needs; although I really love the simplicity of FreeStockCharts.

Excellent charts for educational and long term investing
I like stockcharts.com , I like using it for long term trades, it allows me to see the stock's performance and movement in fine detail. I like the Worden Stochastics and I wish the Worden Stochastics were available on other platforms. Overall it is very good for educational and long term trading purposes, and the best feature of all is that it is free.

Doesn't have data on OTCs
Doesn't fit my trading style since I can't pull data for a lot of stocks.

Its free!
Love these charts! They are comfortable to the eye and has many different features. Its a relative newcomer to the technical analysis and charting arena, yet it offers an impressive array of tools.

The site is unique in that it offers totally free streaming “real-time” charts of indexes, stocks and ETFs, without exchange fees. It does this by providing real-time data from the BATS exchange. Any data that is less than 15 minutes old comes from BATS, while data older than 15 minutes is filled in using complete exchange data. It is worth noting that the “real-time” data being displayed on the charts may differ from what you would see elsewhere, especially for stocks that are not actively traded. Furthermore, you may choose to display volume activity either for trades placed with BATS only or using an approximate total volume.

For charting purposes, FreeStockCharts.com offers line, bar and candlestick charts. You can plot charts on an intraday basis as well as on a daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly and annual basis. The site also boasts one of the larger indicator libraries available online: There are over 80 technical indicators, all of which you can modify to your needs. You can also draw your own trendlines.

Registered users can create chart layouts and save them for future use. A layout consists of the underlying symbol and any desired indicators. Once you save a layout you can access your pre-configured charts from any computer.

There are also built-in watchlists covering indexes, industries and ETFs. For example, you can click on the NASDAQ 100 Component Stock watchlist or see all of the stocks that make up the PowerShares QQQ Trust ETF (QQQQ). Users can also create and save their own watchlists.

The site offers free technical screening, but only for stocks in the S&P 400 and 600 indexes as well as those in the Dow Jones industrial, transportation and utility averages. A gold subscription, which costs $29.99 a month, allows you to screen on U.S. and Canadian common and preferred stocks, Morningstar industry groups, and ETF families.

Finally, the site offers streaming real-time news items.

While free streaming real-time charts are an attractive feature, the impressive collection of technical indicators, watchlists and real-time news are what make FreeStockCharts.com an Editor’s Choice.

Good site, just wished I didn't have to install silverlight. However the pros offset that, great charting tools. It is probably my favorite free charting website.

Need interactive charts for free? This is the place
When I first started to become interested in trading, Freestockcharts is what I used most. Even until this day I utilize it. You can use the charts for free, and even more tools if you sign up which doesn't cost you anything.
