ChartMill Credits

For non-subscribed users, ChartMill has a credit system in place. ChartMIll credits measure what you are using and once you are out of credits limitations will show. If you do not want to know about credits, just take a subscription and credits will not matter to you.

Chartmill has a credit system in place. Every action you perform on chartmill, like requesting a chart or running a screen consumes a certain amount of credits. For the exact details on how many credits are charged per action, you can find more information below.

In the free usage plan, you can consume for the amount of credits which is handed out each month to each account. So depending on what you do you can go out of credits slow or fast.

As long as you have credits available there are few restrictions on the site. On the first day of each month, ChartMill hands out 6000 free credits to every account. As long as your usage is below 6000 credits per month, ChartMill is completely free of charge. Credits also never expire, so if you don't use ChartMill for a month or so, the credits will remain in your account and 6000 new free credits will be added for the next month. However, we stop adding credits when they keep piling up and would go over 60K.

Once you run out of credits, the site will be restricted. Some of the following restrictions will apply:

  • No more technical or fundamental reports.
  • No more access to advanced properties, like for instance the ChartMill ratings.
  • Only the first result will be visible in the screener and charts.
  • No more reports from the analyzer.
  • No more intraday charts.
  • Charts will be limited in size.
  • No access to alerts.
  • No access to watchlists.
  • No access to custom views.
  • No access to advanced views and properties.
  • No access to position sizing and annotation tools.
  • No access to saved settings.

When you subscribe to chartmill (above on this page), all restrictions will be removed and you will have an unlimited amount of credits. (This is why we call it an all you can eat subscription). On top on having no restrictions, you will also get rid of the advertisements.

Some tips to limit credit usage.

  • Always save your preferred chart settings! Each time you generate a chart, you will be charged for the chart. So if you add and remove indicators, each time the full amount of credits will be charged. Using saved settings immediately applies the settings you want.
  • Always save your favorite screens! This will take you immediately to the right screener configuration. Adding and removing filters in the screener will charge credits for the full page.
  • Using the table view in the screener does not show any charts and will be the cheapest option while experimenting.
  • OR ... subscribe for unlimited usage and you don't have to worry about all this.
