Stock Chart

Stock Chart (Chart Controls)

A Stock chart is typically used to illustrate significant stock price points including a stock's open, close, high, and low price points. However, this type of chart can also be used to analyze scientific data, because each series of data displays high, low, open, and close values, which are typically lines or triangles. The opening values are shown by the markers on the left, and the closing values are shown by the markers on the right.

The open and close markers can be specified using the ShowOpenClose custom attribute.
