There is a major problem with Klein Charts, there are not enough of them! Mike used two limits, a minimum of 16 years of price history and a minimum market CAP of $1 billion. While he was active at TMF he would produce additional charts on demand. Other Fools had chart rendering websites but they have all faded away.

My fast growth wishlist uses phpExcel to calculate the Average CAGR (the red line) but looking at the numbers is not too helpful, nowhere as informative as a chart. The charting software I have seen is in languages that I'm not familiar with.

I seldom make New Year Resolutions but this year I'm making one, Denny's Klein Charts with phpExcel! I got started today. The tutorials on Google were all very complicated so I turned to the examples that come with phpExcel which promptly bombed. I found the bug fix using Google so the examples are now working. Now it's just a matter of time to get it working.

Why now? Because had I looked at a Klein Chart I would not have bought an overpriced stock that took a terrible dive last October.

Stay tuned!
