How Do You Read Line Charts When Trading Stocks

So how do you read line charts when trading stocks?

Line charts are the basic of all stock charts you will see when researching stocks. Line charts simply connect all the closing prices over a certain period of time. These charts are not typically used to often when researching stocks because they do not really offer that much information to an investor.

You will mostly see line charts used on television to show how a stock has performed over a certain length of time.

Short-term investors will rely more on bar charts and candlestick charts.
