Candlestick Charts

A charting method, developed in Japan, that visually shows the relationship between the opening and the closing share price. The price range between the open and close is plotted as a rectangle. If the close is above the open, the body of the rectangle is white. If the close of the day is below the open, the body of the rectangle is black. The lines from the high and low, to the rectangle, are called ‘shadows’ or ‘tails’.
