The standard setting for Linecharts is to show a line between the
closing prices of each time frame but there is often the option to
change that to use opening prices, the high or the low.
Click in the box at the bottom right of our interactive AVAFX chart

This chart is set on Hourly
for a line-chart that means that every 1 hour a price will register on
the chart and the line will essentially join the dots. The value of the
line will then fluctuate as the price moves until the end of the next
hour at which point the next point is sealed, and so on.
Line graphs or charts are very basic but as you can see, it does give
you a very good
idea of the stocks price history.
So these charts are suitable for long term stock
trading or to
back up another form of stock picking, but if you are trading short
you will need a chart with a bit more information on it such as bar charts, or our preference which
is Japanese candlestick charts.
