Financial Series

Financial series are used to illustrate stock prices.

The following types of Financial series are available.

Coloring Specifics

Note that financial series do not support a standard coloring mechanism used to color chart series points. The Chart dashboard item colors series points of financial series in the following way.

  • Black/Blue if the price at the end of the previous period is lower than the price at the end of the current period.
  • Red if the price at the end of the previous period is larger than the price at the end of the current period.
