do not display first value on the x axis

hi,

 have the code below
y=[6 6.25 6.33 6.45 7 7.2 7.1 7.4 7.5 7.3 7.6 7.4 7.4 7.5 7.4 7.2 6.8 6.6 6.7 6.8 6.9 6.3 6.2 6.5 6.9 7.3 7.5 7.6 7.4 7.2 6.9 6.7 6.8 6.5 7.2 7.6 8.2 7.4 7.2 6.7 6.5 7.2 7.5 7.7 7.4 7.6 7.2 7.3 7.1 6.9 6.3]
x=[0:0.02:1]
plot(x,y)
xlabel('Time');
ylabel('Stock price');
xlim = get(gca,'XLim');
h = line(xlim,[7 7]);
set(h,'LineStyle',':')
axis([0 1  5 9])
set(gca,'XTickLabel',0.1:0.1:1)
set(gca,'Box','off')

I thought that with set(gca,'XTickLabel',0.1:0.1:1) the rist value on the x axis is not shown and therefore the first value of the x-axis and the first value of the y-axis aren't that near together, but for whatever strange reason this is not working, could someone help me?

You probably wanted to change the tick locations and not just the labels:

set(gca,'XTick',0.1:0.1:1)
set(gca,'XTickLabel',0.1:0.1:1)

thanks, it's working. could you explain me the difference between xtick and xticklabel?

'XTick' specifies the locations of the ticks. 'XTickLabel' is the labeling (i.e. the text) at the ticks.
