    It is a way of drawing a chart showing price changes for a security such as a stock. It is a convenient way of showing opening and closing prices, as well as the range of prices at which the security traded, for the security for a specified time period, usually one day. By plotting a series of time periods on a single chart some patterns show up clearly. These patterns are used by some technical analysts to decide when to make trades.
