CQG’s Fourteen Charts Types As with many of CQG’s features, all of the attributes of the OHLC bar charts can be modified. The open menus’ titles refer to which chart element is to be modified and lists manageable features. The bars and studies that meet a “condition” can be marked or colored. Here, the top and bottom of the bars of the daily bar chart of EEX-2 nd Period European Carbon contract for December 2008 delivery are marked whenever the market closes outside of the Bollinger Bands. Key Benefit: Traders can set up their charts with the look they want by right-clicking on elements of the chart to modify.
Bar, Candlestick, Point & Figure, & Percent Change Charts The 2 nd Period European Carbon contract is displayed in four charting styles with studies. The top left chart is the classic OHLC bar chart and the Stochastics study. The top right chart is the candlestick chart with the CCI study. The chart on the bottom left is the point & figure chart.
