Candlestick charts let you see the change in price for selected time intervals.
The width of the candlestick corresponds with the time interval selected: 5 minutes, 30 minutes, 1 hour, 4 hours, 1 day, or 1 week.
The height will determine the open, close, high, and low prices, as well as volume, for the selected time interval.
Hovering your cursor over a candlestick bar will display the details for that bar above the chart.
Open Price (O): The price at the start of the time interval
High Price (H): The highest price reached during a time interval
Low Price (L): The lowest price reached during a time interval
Close Price (C): The price at the end of the time interval
Volume (V): Number of tokens swapped during the interval
Open and close prices
The open and close prices are the prices at the beginning and end of the respective time interval. They define the body of the candle.
If the open price is lower than the close price then the price went up during the respective time interval and the candlestick is colored green. If, on the other hand, the open price is higher than the close price, the price went down during the respective time interval and the candlestick is colored red.
Green: Open Price < Close Price
Red: Open Price > Close Price
The lines that are extended above and below the body of the candle are called wicks. The wicks represent the High Price and Low Price reached during the respective time interval.
