What is a Stock Chart?

Stock charts show historical and latest prices for publicly traded companies. Prices represent trades made by stock market participants when they buy and sell shares, which in turn represent ownership of the company. There are different stock chart types, such candlesticks, area, lines and bars to view latest market data. Anyone interested in the stock market, such as reporters, investors and analysts can perform technical analysis on stock charts and identify potential trends. Through technical analysis traders attempt to predict where prices will go next.

Various tools help investors perform technical stock chart analysis, such as technical indicators and drawing tools. Tools can be applied to one or several stock charts, in order to determine any existing correlations or other interactions. Prices on stock charts can be viewed in a number of formats, including candles, bars, lines or shaded areas. Different stock chart types reveal different information about the price tendencies, which means they can be helpful in different situations. Each stock chart can also be viewed in different resolutions, such as days, hours, or minutes. This helps zoom and see more precise market action on any particular stock chart.

Stock chart trading involves buying and selling shares, which are percent ownership of publicly traded companies. Buyers can hold their stocks indefinitely and receive dividends, or sell them for profit.

Make sure you play around with different stock chart types and intervals in order to see different angles into price action. For example, a daily resolution, where each bar represents one day, will give you a much better idea about long-term trends. Candle stock chart type will intuitively color code price action for each bar, with green for gains and red for losses.

Types of Stock Charts

There are several major stock chart types that can be applied to any stock chart – OHLC bars, continuous lines, candlesticks, and shaded areas. OHLC stands for Open, High, Low and Closing prices for a given time period. Each stock chart type has its advantages and disadvantages. For example, the candlestick stock chart type has easy-to-understand color coding, body and wicks. Wicks represent range from high to low, and the body is the distance between open and close, with red for losing period and green for gaining. OHLC stock chart type is one of the most popular stock chart types because it provides easy to see information on the four key points of a bar. Proper stock chart analysis begins with researching different stock chart types and trying different resolutions to identify which one works for you.
