A Dashboard is a complex set of charts, designed around situations where you need to show a lot of different information about a single subject. Dashboards can contain as many charts (of the same or different types) as necessary. This dashboard gives us all the relevant regarding the stock prices of ACME Corp. for the given period, and the title of the dashboard tells this (correct chart and dashboard titles are very important in terms of data visualization).
This dashboard contains two charts: the first one with three series of Range Area, Spline and Japanese Candlestick types and one below contains only a column series to show trading volume. All these series display information about ACME Corp. Stocks prices and trades.
The Japanese Candlestick series in the upper chart shows the open, high, low and the closing prices of ACME Stocks for each trading day within the given period. Each vertical line shows the range between the highest and the lowest prices during the trading period, and the body represents opening and closing trades. While in classical Candlesticks the Stock Price rise and fall are shown with a white-colored and a black-colored body, in this particular dashboard light blue and dark blue colors are used.
Besides the Candlestick series there are Range Area and Spline series in the first chart. Usually spline charts, as well as area, in stock charts are used to show technical indicators (like Bollinger Bands). We set the data for those series in the same dataset where the data for Candlestick series' is stored. Note that AnyStock has built-in technical indicators feature.
We can see the change of ACME Corp. Stock Prices, and indicators from the first chart on the first chart. The second chart contains column series showing the change in volume of stocks sold.
