Candlesticks

Candlesticks are a specific “Bar Type” that can be selected to display the underlying symbol’s price data on your chart. Colored Candlesticks plot the difference between the close of the current bar and the open price of the current bar.

  • If Close is greater than Open, the bar is colored green.
  • If Close is less than Open, the bar is colored red.

Interactive Charts give you two options for Candlesticks:

Candlestick Open-to-Close plot the difference between the close of the current bar and the open price of the current bar.

  • If Close is greater than Open, the bar is colored green.
  • If Close is less than Open, the bar is colored red.

Candlestick Close-to-Close plot the difference between the close of the current bar and the closing price of the previous bar (price change)

  • If today’s close is greater than the previous close, the bar is colored green.
  • If today’s close is less than the previous close, the bar is colored red.
