Ohlc series: overview

This series operates with a special kind of data in the form of four parameters defining the stock market - open, high, low, and close. The high and low values show the price range (the highest and lowest prices) over one unit of time. The open and close values indicate the opening and closing price of the stock for the corresponding period. The width of the ohlc bar is determined by the period between 2 bars and the range of the axis


To present a better view over OHLC series we will take a look at the following example:


Just like with all vue 'pages' let's start with the Component in which we will place our RadCartesianChart instance.

Before that, we would create a basic JS or TS module that contains a collection of objects, which will be used by the chart to provide intuitive data visualization.

import { ObservableArray } from 'tns-core-modules/data/observable-array';

export const getFinantialData = () => {
  return new ObservableArray([
    { Date: '01/6/2015', Open: 100, Close: 85, Low: 50, High: 139 },
    { Date: '27/7/2015', Open: 60, Close: 150, Low: 40, High: 159 },
    { Date: '18/8/2015', Open: 120, Close: 81, Low: 45, High: 141 },
    { Date: '19/9/2015', Open: 105, Close: 200, Low: 55, High: 250 }

All that is left is to declare the template of the vue component in which we:

import { getFinantialData } from '../data';

export default {
  template: `
        <OhlcSeries v-tkCartesianSeries
                    :items="items" />
        <DateTimeCategoricalAxis v-tkCartesianHorizontalAxis
        <LinearAxis v-tkCartesianVerticalAxis></LinearAxis>
  data () {
    return {
      items: getFinantialData(),
