High-Low-Close Plots

Click the Home | New Graph | Specialty | High-Low-Close Plot or Home | New Graph | Specialty | High-Low-Close Candlestick Plot command to display a range of Y values at each X value. This plot is commonly used to display the daily high, low, opening, and closing stock values, although it can be used for other data types. A vertical line is drawn between the high and low values, and horizontal lines show the opening and closing values. The opening value is a horizontal line to the left of the hi-low vertical line, and the closing value is a horizontal line to the right of the hi-low vertical line. Opening and closing values are optional. The high values must be greater than the low values. Hi-low-close plots may also be drawn as "candlestick" plots where a box is drawn between the opening and closing values.

Click the High-Low-Close Plot or High-Low-Close Candlestick Plot buttons to create high-low-close plots.

 


Hi-low-close plots show four
variables, typically stock values.
