Notes

A Japanese Candlestick graph is a combination of a body (box), and upper and lower wicks. The body of the graph depicts the opening and closing prices of a security over a given time interval. The wicks represent the highest and lowest prices of the security. If a security finishes higher than it opened, the body is unfilled by default in Origin. In this situation, the opening price is at the bottom and the closing price is at the top of the body. If a security closes lower than it opened, the body is filled with red color by default. In this situation, the opening price is at the top of the body and the closing price is at the bottom.
