Candlestick Chart

A Candlestick chart also called as a Japanese candlestick chart which was founded in the 18th century by Japanese rice trader, Munehisa Homma. He discovered that, while there was a connection between price and the supply and demand of rice, the markets were strongly influenced by the emotions of traders.

The emotions of traders remain the same at all the time. So, the candlestick chart can be used in any markets to measure the demand, supply and the emotions of traders.

This old candlestick technique was introduced later to the western world by Steve Nison in his popular book, “Japanese Candlestick Charting Techniques”.

Candlestick charts are a powerful technical tool that packs data for multiple time frames into single price bars. Example: if you look out the daily candlestick chart, each candle shows the full price performance of the particular date in the colourful body of the candle.

Candlestick patterns, which are technical trading tools, have been used for centuries to predict price direction. 

There are various candlestick patterns used to determine price direction and momentum

Hollow Candlestick Chart

Hollow Candlestick chart is similar to the candlestick chart showing high, low, open, close of the candle. but the body of the candle remains hollow. Meaning No colour inside the candlestick body.

Hollow Candle eliminates the solid colour in the body of the candle.

Heikin-Ashi Candlestick Chart

Heiken-Ashi means “average bar” in Japanese. Heikin-Ashi is similar to the candlestick chart, but it connects the average price of the current candle and previous candle.

The main difference between traditional candlestick charts and Heikin Ashi (HA) charts is that HA charts the average price moves, creating a smoother appearance. Because the Heikin Ashi price bars are averaged, they don’t show the exact open and close prices for a particular time period. However, it help traders to determine the trend reversal or trend continuation patterns in the chart.

Bar Chart

A bar chart shows the opening and closing prices, as well as the highs and lows which is similar to the candlestick. The only difference is there’s no solid body between open and close.

Bar charts help a trader see the price range of each period.

Line Chart

A line chart is a graphical representation of connecting the closing data points with a continuous line. This is the most simple type of chart used in financial markets to predict the price movements.

line chart vs candlestick chart

Line charts used to identify the trend direction of the market easier when comparing to other charts because it connects only the close price of each timeframe chart. Example: if you look out 10 candles formed in the chart, if you convert that candle chart into line chart, only the close price of the candles getting connected into a single line.

In the Line chart, the fake movements in the market are ignored. The candlestick chart looks very clear when comparing to other charts.

Area Chart

An Area Chart is a simple chart similar to the line chart. Long-term investors like to show the area charts to demonstrate the trend. Television channels consider the area chart style is one of the best charts that works for their audience.

Area charts have very little detail, they are for big-picture trading rather than day trading, for example. Trend lines, as well as horizontal support and resistance levels, are easy to see.

Renko Chart

A Renko Chart is founded by the Japanese which is built only using the price movement rather than price or time intervals. The word “Renko” is originated from the Japanese word “Renga” which means bricks. This is the reason, you can see this Renko chart looks like a series of bricks.

A new brick is created when the price moves a specified price amount, and each block is positioned at a 45-degree angle (up or down) to the prior brick.

Renko charts are composed of bricks that are created at 45-degree angles to one another. Consecutive bricks do not occur beside each other.

Renko charts have a time axis, but the time scale is not fixed. Some bricks may take longer to form than others, depending on how long it takes the price to move the required box size.

Renko charts filter out the noise and help traders to more clearly see the trend.

3. How to Analyse Technical Charts?

Technical Analysis is the forecasting of future financial price movements based on an examination of past price movements.

Like weather forecasting, technical analysis does not result in absolute predictions about the future. Instead, technical analysis can help investors predict what is “likely” to happen to prices over time. Technical analysis uses a wide variety of charts that show price over time.
