Line Charts

A line chart displays series as a set of points connected by a line.  Values are represented by the height of the point as measured by the y-axis.  Category labels are displayed on the x-axis.  Line charts are typically used to compare values over time.

A line chart displays a series as individual straight lines, with a data point for each category.  The height of each data point is determined by the value.

Line charts can be used to represent price or volume data, however, they are typically used to plot the values calculated from technical indicators, as shown below.
