Drawing Line Stock Indexes Charts in MT5
This is the fifth option on the charts menu within the MT5 platform. The line stock indices chart button shown below.
The line stock indexes trading charts are not popular and are not used by many traders as these do not show a lot of information that is useful for stock indexes trading technical analysis. This MetaTrader 5 option will only draw a indices price line that connects the closing stock indices prices leaving out all other data.
When compared to indices candlesticks that will show the Opening, the Closing, the Low and the High of indices price, then the line stock indices chart leaves out a lot of information in its graphical representation of market movement.
Most of this information is useful and used by most traders when using stock indexes trading technical analysis method therefore the indices candlesticks are preferred because they provide more information for stock indexes trading technical analysis.
For this reason this charting method is not popular among technical traders and therefore not widely used.
