# Candlestick Chart

Candlestick enables you to create candlesticks over a period of time.

### Using Candlestick

To create an Candlestick object, provide its constructor with the [5 x n] array Data, where

• Each element of row 0 represents a time period (e.g.: day)
• Each element of row 1 represents the lowest price during each time period
• Each element of row 2 represents the highest price during each time period
• Each element of row 3 represents the opening price of each time period
• Each element of row 4 represents the closing price of each time period

Take a look at the following example that displays the use of Candlestick:

Use the Update() method to independently modify the following input parameters:

• P – row vector, containing time periods
• Low – row vector, containing lowest price during each time period
• High – row vector, containing the highest price during each time period
• Open – row vector, containing the opening price of each time period
• Close – row vector, containing the closing price of each time period

However, you can only apply the Update() method to an Candlestick object that already exists as shown in the example below:

When changing one or more of the 5 input parameters, make sure they are of same lengths.

### Optional Parameters

Next to the mandatory input parameters, there are also a set of optional parameters. We can split those parameters into two categories: Bull and Bear. Every property that has the prefix “Bull” refers to bullish candlesticks while the prefix “Bear” refers to bearish candlesticks:

• bullBodyWidth/ bearBodyWidth specifies the width of the corresponding candlesticks
• bullColor/ bearColor determines the color of the candlestick

However, there are more properties you can specify. They are all listed here.

### Further Configurations

Since Candlestick derives from Group, you have access to all configuration options of common group objects.
