I needed to plot some bar charts but I haven't got the financial toolbox. I couldn't find one here so I modified Nagi Hatoum's Candlestick Graph script to display bar charts.
I've also updated Hatoum's candlestick plotter, custom colors are available for both bars and candles. Also expanded the number of ways to input data. In combination with tlabel (see acknowledgements), auto-updating dates can be shown on the x axis.
Input instructions are in the file (look at the file or use 'help [fcnname]')

comments on date format is not clear, keeps getting errors when using either datenum or datetime
Hi Jelle, maybe you can help me, I need to draw a candle or bar chart on intraday stockprices and I would like to see the dates and times on the x-axis.
As you know the trading time is not continuous, Can you suggest me a method to have a nice candle chart with no gaps for the non trading hours? I tried also with the timeseries, but the problem is the same... Thanks
I used the 'export' function in stead of a screenshot, candles will look better on screen. (Referring to to-be-accepted update I just send in)
Added new candlestick options, made available use of dates 'inside function', can use colors.
