Admin: How about a quick tutorial on how to post a chart?

I see others doing it, but I guess I'm a little slow at this techy stuff.  Little help?

Posting charts

If you use Stockcharts, all you have to do is annotate your chart, THEN CLICK "LINKABLE FORM" at bottom of chart, copy and paste the URL and your chart link will appear here

Use the "files" tab in your profile to upload images

First make an image of the stock chart (right click and select 'save image as') then save to your desktop. Then go to your profile and click the 'files' tab and then click 'upload' and then navigate to your saved chart image and select it to show up in the post. If you want to be fancy like the TURD you can use that image as the content of a link element to point to a full-sized version of the chart on the web [I use StockCharts.com].

Making a clickable small-to-large chart image

Here's the GOLD:OIL spread which is leading indicator for the miners:

As you can see, clicking it leads to the online, larger version.

little help??

I've managed to upload charts to "files"...

how does one delete from the "files" folder?  I've tried the shortcuts...nothing seems to work.

they look bad when in the posts, need to start over.

thanks for your time.

exactly

the charts look too small and you cant delete them from the files list once they are in there. Very Bad. makes it useless.

Message murphy.  He has it totally figured out.  He fixed up my post on Main St. today and put the charts in there for me.
