Charting Financial Data


The following toolbox financial charting functions plot financial data and produce presentation-quality figures quickly and easily.


Bollinger band chart


Time series Bollinger band


Candlestick chart


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 (ibm.dat), then call the functions using subsets of the data. The MATLAB variable ibm, 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 use only.
