A chart made up of vertical bars (candles). You can see the high and low points of the price, as well as the open and close, on those candles. During that time, the candle's wick will show where the price reached its highest and lowest point, while the body will show where it opened and closed. A higher CLOSE price than an open price means the price went up. A price that closed at a lower level than its open price indicates a downward movement.
