Candlestick Chart (Chart Controls)

The Candlestick chart type is used to display stock information using high, low, open and close values. The size of the line is determined by the high and low values, while the size of the bar is determined by the open and close values. The open and close bars are displayed using different colors. The color used depends on whether the stock's price has gone up or down.
