What are the symbols on the exchange chart?
After logging into the exchange panel, you will see the chart. The chart cointains elements such as time and rate level, selection of a time range (from 1 minute to 1 year), tools and selection of a view which interests you. At the top of the chart you can see the determinations such as Open (O), High (H), Low (L), Close (C) and Volume (20).
- 1 - Selection of the time range we are interested in
- 2 - Determinations of the prices and volume
- 3 - Tools for technical analysis
- 4 - Selection of the chart view (bars, candles, line, area)
- 5 - Rate level
- 6 - Time range
- 7 - Candlestick chart
Explanation of price and volume signs
Volume (20) - it is a moving average (average price chart based on the selected period - 20 moving averages for 20 periods, so for 20 candles), it opens by double clicking on the bars under the chart. The shortcuts such as O, H, L i C are connected with candles.
Candles are a graphical interpretation of what happens to a price at a given moment. To build a single candle we need:
- O - Open - opening price from selected period of time
- H - High - the hightest price from selected period of time
- L - Low - the lowest price from selected period of time
- C - Close - closing price from selected period of time
Candles also have shadows which informs how far the price has gone up or down.
Thanks to the using of the colors on the chart, you can instantly see what is the situation on the market. A lot of green candles means the rising of the prices, on the other hand - a lot of red candles means the price drop.
The range between opening and closing price creates a body. Depending on the location of the opening price, we distinguish two types of candles:
- growing - empty candle - the opening price is below of the closing price
- declining - filled candle - the opening price is above of the closing price
Tools for technical analysis
