A candlestick chart is a style of financial chart used to describe price movements of equity. It is like a combination of line-chart and a bar-chart: each bar represents all four important pieces of information for that day: the open, the close, the high and the low prices. Candlestick charts are most often used in technical analysis of equity and currency price patterns. Candlestick charting offers several advantages over other investment techniques. It helps investors enormously when they try to pin down the best trading stocks in the market.
