Arguments

data

a data.frame to be displayed as a candlestick chart. The data has to have at least 5 columns.

xvar

name of the character column which contains the category labels for the x-axes.

low

name of the numeric column specifying the low/minimum value of this marker. This is the base of the candle's center line.

open

name of the numeric column specifying the opening/initial value of this marker. This is one vertical border of the candle. If less than the close value, the candle will be filled; otherwise it will be hollow.

close

name of the numeric column specifying the closing/final value of this marker. This is the second vertical border of the candle. If less than the open value, the candle will be hollow; otherwise it will be filled.

high

name of the numeric column specifying the high/maximum value of this marker. This is the top of the candle's center line.

options

list of configuration options, see:

\Sexpr[results=rd]{gsub("CHARTNAME", googleChartName, readLines(file.path(".", "inst", "mansections", "GoogleChartToolsURLConfigOptions.txt")))} \Sexpr[results=rd]{paste(readLines(file.path(".", "inst", "mansections", "gvisOptions.txt")))}
chartid

character. If missing (default) a random chart id will be generated based on chart type and tempfile

Details

The gvisCandlestickChart function reads a data.frame and creates text output referring to the Google Visualisation API, which can be included into a web page, or as a stand-alone page. The actual chart is rendered by the web browser using SVG or VML.

A candlestick chart is used to show an opening and closing value overlaid on top of a total variance. Candlestick charts are often used to show stock value behavior. In this chart, items where the opening value is less than the closing value (a gain) are drawn as filled boxes, and items where the opening value is more than the closing value (a loss) are drawn as hollow boxes.

Value

\Sexpr[results=rd]{paste(gvisChartName)}

returns list of class \Sexpr[results=rd]{paste(readLines(file.path(".", "inst", "mansections", "gvisOutputStructure.txt")))}
