Set Marker Types for Grouped Line Charts

Some projects might require you to set different marker types to each series in a Kendo UI Line Chart.

The example below demonstrates how to achieve this behavior.

Example
    <div id="chart"></div>
    <script>
        var data = [{
        "date": "12/30/2011",
        "close": 405,
        "volume": 6414369,
        "open": 403.51,
        "high": 406.28,
        "low": 403.49,
        "symbol": "2. AAPL"
    },{
        "date": "11/30/2011",
        "close": 382.2,
        "volume": 14464710,
        "open": 381.29,
        "high": 382.276,
        "low": 378.3,
        "symbol": "2. AAPL"
    },{
        "date": "10/31/2011",
        "close": 404.78,
        "volume": 13762250,
        "open": 402.42,
        "high": 409.33,
        "low": 401.05,
        "symbol": "2. AAPL"
    },{
        "date": "12/30/2011",
        "close": 173.1,

    var stocksDataSource = new kendo.data.DataSource({
