CandlestickSeries

Overview

The CandlestickSeries is similar to the OhlcSeries, but instead of tick marks, it uses a rectangle which horizontal sides define the opening and closing price. The rectangle is filled if the opening price is lower than closing one, otherwise it's empty.

Candle Stick Series

CandlestickSeries class inherits from the OhlcSeriesBase class - See the inherited properties.

Example

Here's an example how to create RadCartesianChartwith CandleStickSeries.

  1. First, create a class for the sample data.

    public class FinancialData
    {
        public double High { get; set; }
    
        public double Low { get; set; }
    
        public double Open { get; set; }
    
        public double Close { get; set; }
    }
    
  2. Then create the sample data.

    List<FinancialData> sampleData = new List<FinancialData>();
    sampleData.Add(new FinancialData() { High = 10, Open = 5, Low = 2, Close = 8 });
    sampleData.Add(new FinancialData() { High = 15, Open = 7, Low = 3, Close = 5 });
    sampleData.Add(new FinancialData() { High = 20, Open = 15, Low = 10, Close = 19 });
    sampleData.Add(new FinancialData() { High = 7, Open = 2, Low = 1, Close = 5 });
    sampleData.Add(new FinancialData() { High = 25, Open = 15, Low = 10, Close = 12 });
    
    this.candleStickSeries.DataContext = sampleData;
    
  3. Finally, we are ready to create the chart using XAML.

    <telerikChart:RadCartesianChart x:Name="candlestickSeries">
        <telerikChart:RadCartesianChart.VerticalAxis>
            <telerikChart:LinearAxis/>
        </telerikChart:RadCartesianChart.VerticalAxis>
        <telerikChart:RadCartesianChart.HorizontalAxis>
            <telerikChart:CategoricalAxis/>
        </telerikChart:RadCartesianChart.HorizontalAxis>
    
        <telerikChart:CandlestickSeries ItemsSource="{Binding}">
            <telerikChart:CandlestickSeries.HighBinding>
                <telerikChart:PropertyNameDataPointBinding PropertyName="High"/>
            </telerikChart:CandlestickSeries.HighBinding>
            <telerikChart:CandlestickSeries.LowBinding>
                <telerikChart:PropertyNameDataPointBinding PropertyName="Low"/>
            </telerikChart:CandlestickSeries.LowBinding>
            <telerikChart:CandlestickSeries.OpenBinding>
                <telerikChart:PropertyNameDataPointBinding PropertyName="Open"/>
            </telerikChart:CandlestickSeries.OpenBinding>
            <telerikChart:CandlestickSeries.CloseBinding>
                <telerikChart:PropertyNameDataPointBinding PropertyName="Close"/>
            </telerikChart:CandlestickSeries.CloseBinding>
        </telerikChart:CandlestickSeries>
    </telerikChart:RadCartesianChart>
