The following toolbox financial charting functions plot financial data and produce presentation-quality figures quickly and easily.
Bollinger band chart
Time series Bollinger band
Time series candle plot
Point and figure chart
High, low, open, close chart
Time series High-Low plot
Leading and lagging moving averages chart
These functions work with standard MATLAB® functions that draw axes, control appearance, and add labels and titles. The toolbox also provides a comprehensive set of charting functions that work with financial time series objects, see Chart Technical Indicators.
Here are two plotting examples: a high-low-close chart of
sample IBM® stock price data, and a Bollinger band chart of the
same data. These examples load data from an external file (
then call the functions using subsets of the data. The MATLAB variable
which is created by loading
ibm.dat, is a six-column
matrix where each row is a trading day's data and where columns 2,
3, and 4 contain the high, low, and closing prices, respectively.
The data in
ibm.dat is fictional and for illustrative
