The Bubble Chart is a new style of Market Intelligence chart, which allows you to plot a series of codes onto the chart and quickly gauge their performance based on 3 custom script criteria.
One script will control each symbols position on the X-axis. Another will control each symbols position on the Y-axis
The final script will control the size of the bubble itself.
Once all 3 scripts have been setup, you can quickly identify symbols which display outside of the group, with symbols containing higher value results displayed near the top-right corner of the bubble chart (with a larger surface area).
