stock chart

Post by adventuresofgreg » Sun Sep 05, 2010 8:34 pm

Has anyone written a script to use chartsengine to draw a stock chart based on collecting tick data? ie: collect price data from a vendor like Yahoo with time stamps, then collect the prices into a time-series bar with open, high, low and close marks.

Thanks,
Greg

Greg,
I dont know whether chartsengine supports high/low, open/close type of charts.
A while back I did it just to see how the graphic object can do this. So I cleaned that up a bit and sine you are "adventourous" here it is. It is not industrial strength chartsengine, nor polished but it shows the basic concept. Maybe Malte has a couple of aces up his sleeve. :)

regards
Bernd

Currently ChartsEngine does not support high-low-open-close charts. However, I am looking into this, and will know wether I'll make one within approximately a quarter year (no promises).

Just curious-- any progress on this?

High-low charts will not be part of the next release, and are currently not scheduled.

If you want this to be part of ChartsEngine, contact me and we can make a deal for inclusion.
