Bar Chart

A Bar Chart shows the opening and closing prices, as well as highest and lowest prices of the time period.

Below is an example of a bar chart taken for a one-day period:



A vertical bar indicates a specified time period,  for example, 1 minute, 5 minutes, 15 minutes, 1 hour, etc.

You can specify the time period by selecting it from the Time Scale drop-down box on the Chart Toolbar:


You can also specify the number of bars to be displayed on a chart by entering the desired number into the Load Candles field in the Chart Settings dialog > Common > Chart Field section:



A vertical bar indicates the currency pair's range as a whole for a specified time period.




High indicates the highest traded price of the specified time period.

Low indicates the lowest traded price of the specified time period.

Open indicates the opening price.

Close indicates the closing price.


A bar is blue if the closing price is higher than the opening price.

A bar is red if the closing price is lower than the opening price.

Blue and Red are the default settings; you can change them in Chart Settings: Colors section
