            // Create a stock series, add it to the chart and set its properties.
            Series series1 = new Series("Series 1", ViewType.Stock);

            // Cast the view type of the series to the Stock view.
            StockSeriesView myView = ((StockSeriesView)series1.View);

            // Define the Y-axis range.
            myView.AxisY.WholeRange.AlwaysShowZeroLevel = false;

            // Add the trendline to the series collection of indicators.
            myView.Indicators.Add(trendline1);

            // Add the chart to the form.
            stockChart.Dock = DockStyle.Fill;
            this.Controls.Add(stockChart);
