So, this article compares candlesticks charts to bar charts and the classic line chart, to find the answer to “what’s the best chart to trade forex” and how to take advantage of forex trading. You can also increment your learning about trading charts on the article Candlestick Patterns You Should Know.

Let’s dive into the candlestick trading world

As a reminder, if you are using a candlestick chart of the AUD/NZD symbol while receiving a Wise AI trading or AI forex signals alert,  you can clearly observe the movement once the price drops below a certain price, such as when it reaches a take profit objective on a short trade.

For traders who only want to know the open, high, low, and close (OHLC) prices, the bar chart can be a cleaner representation that the candle chart. The bar chart contains the same information as the candlestick, but it is not filled with color.

Compared to candlestick charts, there are small differences, the open price comes first, at the left of each bar, on the bar chart, and the closing price on the right side of each bar. The thin line goes from the maximum to the minimum price. Finally, the color pattern is the same. If the closing price is higher than open, the bar will be one color (i.e. green), otherwise, it will be another contrasting color (i.e. red). Let’s see how the same AUD/NZD graph above will look like as a bar chart here below.

The candlestick and bar charts look very similar, and we are capable of interpreting the same information, it simply looks a bit more cleaner in a bar chart, as they open and close prices are denoted by the small horizontal lines to the left and right of each bar. It can make a difference once you start to put some indicators and other analyses over the image, as a bar chart can stay cleaner than a candlestick chart.

Very often, traders want to see the trend of the forex pairs and our mindset almost immediately thinks about lines. Therefore, the other very popular fashion of presenting data in forex is using a plain Line chart. Using the same example of the AUD/NZD forex pair, we change the chart to a line graph in our fx broker analysis tool.

We can set the green line to maximum prices, the red line to minimum prices, and the blue line from opening to closing prices.

💡 One very important piece of information is that the line is not continuous, it was made by a sequence of spot measures connected. It represents a continuous line, but it is not, rather a series of dots that are connected. It is relevant because future values can be very far away from previous values, making our graph jump from one dot to another.

I would prefer the two first kinds, candlesticks and bar charts, exactly to avoid the feeling of connection between each period, compared to a line chart. And because I like to use other line indicators as mobile means.

However, since using the Wise automated AI Trading system or AI forex signals, which is powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI) I don’t have to focus so much on charting to find trading opportunities. Instead, the AI can trade totally automated in the fx broker account. On the other hand, when using the AI signals system, I focus on the signals generated and do not need to look at graphs anymore.
