Bar Chart

smlbar.gifThese are one of the most common charts and are very easy to interpret. Bar Charts are drawn as a vertical line that shows the difference between the high and low for the day.

Small ticks to the left show the opening price for the day, while ticks to the right show the day’s closing price. These are the most common charts and very easy to interpret.

Bar Chart Properties

Each chart type has its own chart properties dialog box from which its display properties can be altered by the user.

Price Movement Color Code

Your SOFTWARE allows users to color code the bars to give an indication of price trend direction.

From the chart properties dialog box, select different colors for up and down, and choose the trigger for the color change.

There are two choices: Close in Relation to Open (intraday comparison), and Close in Relation to Previous Close (comparison of current with previous sessions).

The default colors are green for up, and red for down. Users can define their own color scheme.
