The Size Chart is a new style of Market Intelligence chart, which allows you to display a number of criteria on a chart, and measure how many symbols within a selected universe match those criteria.
The larger the size of the criteria's bubble, the more symbols are passing that criteria.
Depending on the criteria being used Size charts can be used to see changes in trend across a large number of symbols within a custom portfolio, monitor the health of a custom portfolio, or perform sector analysis.
