Create an OHLC chart in everviz

Follow the steps in this article to create an OHLC chart in everviz.

The Open High Low Close (OHLC) chart works the same way as the stock chart in everviz, except that it shows more information. OHLC charts show the opening, highest, lowest and closing prices of the stock. OHLC charts display thin, vertical bars over a horizontal axis that represents time. In everviz, users can hover the mouse cursor over a bar to see its OHLC values. As with stock charts, you can use date filters in the right-hand corner of the chart to view a specific time period. You can also zoom in to see different time intervals such as one month or a year, use sliders in the chart’s lower panel to define your own specific time interval and drag the selection to view that time interval for a specific part of the chart. 

The example we’ll create will let us see OHLC stock price data over the course of two years, from November 2019 to November 2021. We’ll be able to zoom into specific time intervals for a clearer view of the data.

To create an OHLC chart:

  • Launch the project wizard and select Chart to launch the chart wizard
  • Select OHLC from the Chart type section to the left of the chart wizard’s screen. Notice that the preview pane changes to reflect the chart type you’ve chosen
  • Click Next to move to the Data step where you can enter the data for your chart or click Next again to use the default data provided
  • Click the top-left cell (A1) in the data table and press CTRL+A to select all the data in it
  • Press the delete key to remove the example data
  • Copy this example data and paste it into the data table at the top-left cell (A1). You’ll see the newly added data reflected in the preview chart
  • Click Next to move to the Design screen where you can choose a theme for your chart. Click an available theme to see how it looks, or stick with the default theme
  • Click Next to move to the Text & Annotations screen where you can add contextual information to your chart, such as a title, axis labels and a caption
  • Click Next to move to the Save or Publish screen where you can save your chart for later amendment or use, or publish your chart
  • Alternatively, you can click the Continue in Editor button to edit the chart further with more granular options
