In technical analysis, a chart pattern indicating the activity of an economic variable, usually a stock price, over time (plotted on the horizontal axis) compared with the value of that variable throughout the same period of time (plotted on the vertical axis). In a bar chart of a stock price, the high and low prices for the period are connected by a vertical line. A short horizontal slash is often drawn across the bar at the closing price. Bar charts are the graphs most frequently used by technicians. Also called vertical line chart. Compare point-and-figure chart. See also line chart, candlestick chart.
