Legend

1. A statement, often on a stock certificate, indicating the restrictions of ownership on the share. Many stocks do not have legends, but those that do usually place them directly on the certificate. Others include the legend on a separate document that is traded along with the stock.

2. On a chart, an explanation of the symbols used. For example, given a candlestick chart, a legend may say that white candles represent trading days with gains and black candles represent trading days with losses.
