Bar Colors

OHLC Bars

Incredible Charts OHLC bars are colored according to whether the Close is higher or lower than the previous Close:

  • Blueif today's close is higher than the previous close;
  • Red if today's close is lower than the previous close;
  • The same as the previous day, if today's close is equal to the previous close.

Candlesticks

Candlestick colors are determined by comparing the Open to the Close:

  • Blue if the close is higher than the open - the mid-section is hollow or shaded blue/green;
  • Red if the open is higher than the close - the mid-section is filled in or shaded red;
  • The same as the previous day, if the open is equal to the close.

Equivolume

Equivolume bars are colored (by default) in the same way as candlesticks.
This can be amended to the old (OHLC) format. See Trading Guide: Equivolume for further details.
