A candlestick chart is a style of financial chart used to describe price movements of a security, derivative, or currency. Each "candlestick" typically shows one day. It is something like a combination of line-chart and a column-chart: each column represents all four important pieces of information for that day: the open, the close, the high and the low.
The <Candlestick2DChart> element tag is used to create a candlestick chart in KoolChart, and the series element tag for the candlestick chart is <Candlestick2DSeries>.
If you mouse over the candle which is just above the triangular symbol, then you will see the detail values.
