Line chart graph
All charts are plotted with time on the x-axis and the currency on the y-axis. Each time period displayed on real time charts can range from tick by tick to an interval of an entire week. The tick refers to each individual movement of the pip. This provides market traders with the flexibility of viewing currencies with closer examination while at the same time allowing them to quickly spot market trends that are most suited for time sensitive trading strategies.
A line chart is a graph that displays the value of a particular currency at specific time intervals based upon the current prices. The strength of a line chart comes from the simple design. It's uncluttered and easy to understand and displays the closing price of the currency.
