Candlestick charts can be displayed in one of the four modes:

  • Classic. This is most widely used candlestick chart mode, in which down (black) candlesticks are coloured and up (white) candlesticks are empty.
  • CandleScanner. This mode is recommended for more advanced users. For more details, please read Candlestick charts: CandleScanner color theme.
  • Trend. This is similar to Classic mode (i.e. we have colored and empty candlesticks) but the candles have a different colour depending if they in an uptrend or a downtrend.
  • Custom. This mode allows a lot of customization by the user.

All modes can be customized using Styles.
