Bars for incomplete periods are positioned at the end of the period.
If you chose to Display the incomplete periods, a daily price chart will start a new bar to represent trading on that day. The bar dimensions will change throughout the day, as more data becomes available. This will continue until the market close when the period is completed.
Similarly, an indicator based on weekly periods, such as the 30-week weighted moving average or the weekly MACD, will show a line for the part of the week completed. This line will vary as the week progresses until finalized on Friday.
