Candlestick is a type of charting methodology used by stock and cryptocurrency investors to display historical and real-time asset prices. Candlesticks are used to display an asset’s open, high, low, and closing (OHLC) prices for specific time periods (usually by the minute, hour, day, week, and month). Green candlesticks typically indicate a bullish increase in price, while red candlesticks indicate a bearish decrease in price. Candlesticks are widely regarded as the best-known technical indicator used by investors.
