The graph also displays the amount of trading activity throughout the given time period. Users can add different stocks to compare performance, and can sign in to add particular stocks to their watchlist. Additional information provided includes whether the stock's exchange is currently open, after-hours trading prices, and the specific currency in which the stock is traded.
