Today in Fundementals: ̶W̶i̶t̶c̶h̶c̶r̶a̶f̶t̶ Technical Analysis - What are candlesticks?
Candlestick charts provide an advantage over the traditional line chart by showing the force underpinning the move as well as provide earlier indications of market turning points (this helps you time the market better so you can buy low and sell high more effectively).
Take a look at the nicely labelled candlestick below.
The "bar" of the chart shows you the opening/closing price for that time interval (be it one minute, one day, one month, etc). Charts typically use a red color to show a loss and green color to show a gain. The "wick" is showing you the highest/lowest price reached during the time interval.
Below is a 15 minute candlestick chart of Ethereum (ETH). Each one of these candlesticks represents a 15 minute time interval.
