  2. Click File | Open.
  3. Double-click a chart to display it.
  4. Click Window | New Window.� This will create a copy of the chart that is open.� The copy will probably be named Chart1 and the security name.
  5. Click Window | Tile and you will now see 2 charts of the same security.
  6. Click Chart1 to make it the active chart.
  7. Click Format | X-Axis.
  8. Click the Compression tab.
  9. Select Weekly and click OK. You should now see chart1 as a weekly display and the original chart as daily.
  10. Click File | New | Layout.
  11. Click Add All to add both chart views to the Layout and click OK.
  12. Click File | Save As.
  13. Change the Save as field to Template.
