Candle

Doesn't mean it'll work for you though.

Ronaldo uses his right foot, just cos i do as well doesn't make me a footballer.

they all show the same thing price moving up and down...worry about that not the thing displaying it

blancspa started this thread I tend to find the diffrences between Bar/Candles and Line when drawing S/P levels, and while candles provide plenty of info wouldn`t they mislead at times. This is just a thought. Wouldn`t looking only at the bid/ask tape be a better option/training for an aspiring trader?

I use normal bars but I have coded certain price action alerts that show up as a painted bar or bars when they occur. It makes it easier when using a confluence of events to give an entry trigger.
