Types of Charts1

There are quite a few different types of charts out there.

The first set of charts are the most common ones whereas the latter are not so common:


• Bar charts

• Japanese candlestick charts

• Point and figure Charts

• Ichimoku charts


There are also more charts types out there like:


• Candlevolume

• Equivolume

• Kagi

• Renko

• Three line break



When using technical on charts the price is plotted on the vertical axis and the time scale is plotted on the horizontal axis.

This is common on all the charts apart from point and figure charts which the time (vertical axis) is determined by the price fluctuations of 0s and xs.  

This will be discussed later in more detail. Most of the time the price and time is scaled Arithmetically.
