Chart Update: Forex and commodities have been added to the chart

We have added some commodities and foreign exchange data to the chart. The main reason for adding the data is so that local stocks that have high correlations with commodities (priced in different currencies) can be analysed. It will allow for finding correlations between certain charts. It is also nice to not have to go onto a different site to look at the Gold ($GOLD) or USDZAR charts.

What are the New Symbols

Commodities

Unfortunately some data does not have an open, high or low. So you are limited to using a line graph in those instances. In the list below all will only have closing data so it is best to choose line. Those with an asterisk after the code, have candle data.

So along with the caveat that some data does not have candle data, ie. it only has closing data. Some codes do not have volume either (in fact most don't)
