Forex Chart Introduction


There are 3 types of charts available at Forex Trading Terminal.

  1. Line chart
  2. Bar chart
  3. The candlestick chart

Now we will learn how to interpret these three types of charts.

Line Chart

In this chart, a simple line from one closing price to the next closing price is added. We can see the price movement of a currency pair for a given period through this chart.
The following example is for EURUSD,

Forex Line Chart

Bar Charts

The bar chart is a bit more complicated than the line chart. In this chart, you can see the Opening and Closing price along with the Highs and Lows. The lower part of the vertical bar gives you the lowest price for that period, while the upper part indicates the highest price for that period. The vertical bar itself indicates the specific price range for that time.

The following example is for EURUSD,

Forex Bar Chart

NB: We’ve mentioned the word “bar” many times here. The bar here is the only part of a chart.

Forex Bar Chart Sample

The horizontal hash (bottom or side hash) is the opening price and the top right hash indicates the closing price.

Many times the bar chart is also called “OHLC” chart, because it shows Open, Close, High and Low together. In the chart,

Open = Bottom or bottom line
Close = Top right-hand line
High = top of the vertical line
Low = the bottom of the vertical line

Candlesticks Charts

The candlestick chart also looks like a bar chart to show everything in the market price, but it is nice to see from the bar chart and better understand the market position.
