Bar Charts

Bar charts take the daily open, low, high and close of a stock and compile a summary for a period of time, which can be a day, week, month, year, etc. The single vertical line that is formed as a result of the data illustrates a price range for the specified time period. Over time, the series of rising and falling bars form a chart pattern.
