Spark Lines on NSE website

Just got a glimpse of sparklines in the NSE website.


This page would help investors/traders to have a quick glimpse of the index stocks and this is available for most of the key NIFTY indices (like Junior Nifty, CNX IT, Bank Nifty, Nifty Midcap 50).

Crisp graphical representation of price movement, details of price changes and color coding of stocks nearing 52 week high /low & much more are presented in a crisp and adorable manner.

You can have a look at it when free.! I find this new page exciting!
