A line chart typically displays closing prices and nothing else. Each closing price is linked to the previous closing price to make a continuous line that is easy to follow. This type of chart is often used for television, newspapers and many web articles because it is simple and easy to digest. It provides less information than candlestick or bar charts but it is better for viewing at a glance for a simplistic market view. Another advantage of the line chart is that it can assist in managing the emotions of trading by selecting a neutral colour, like the blue chart depicted above. This is because the line chart eliminates ‘choppy’ movements in different colours as seen in the bar and candlestick charts. Important: Due to the line chart illustrating only closed prices, more experienced traders will consider a line chart to map out the daily closing prices or for situations when the analyst wants to inspect the sub-waves without the noise.
