Bar

In technical analysis, a graphic indicating a security's open, high, low, and close prices over a given time period. This time period may be as long as a year or more or as short as a minute, and many technical analysts use bars on a daily basis. Bars are an important part of analyzing price trends and market movements. Bars are the equivalent of candlesticks on candlestick charts.
