Technical Indicators: Japanese Candlestick
All information are subject to terms of use


The principle of the Japanese candlestick graph is to represent each day by a line and a rectangle. The line goes for the highest price to the lower price of the day. The rectangle goes from the opening price to the closing price. The color of the rectangle depends of the level of the opening and closing price. If the closing price is higher than the opening, the rectangle is white, if the closing is lower than the opening, the rectangle is black.
