Many charts represent currency amount changes over a period of time. Financial charts may show the evolution of a stock market symbol over a period of time, price changes, or revenus and expenses.
Best well-known stock charts are the Japanese Candlestick charts and OHLC (Open-High-Low-Close) charts. They both take into account a stock symbol and show its day-by-day or year-to-year evolution. In our charts, we show the opening and closing amount value during a year, as well as its highest and lowest value during the same interval of time.
We derived three other simple charts from these two basic stock chart types: Candle charts (as Candlesticks with no sticks, with no High and Low representation), High-Low/HiLo charts (as thin vertical bars for the High to Low interval) and Open-Close charts (as simplified OHLC with no High and Low points, just Open hook from the left, and Close hook to the right). Turn Alternate Colors user switch OFF to show all elements with one single color, instead of two (one for positive changes, red or black for negative variations):

Waterfall charts helps in understanding the cumulative effect of sequentially introduced positive or negative values. With Alternate Colors user switch ON, positive and negative changes are represented with different colors. Intermediate and grand totals are other types of bars.
