candlestick chart

/'kænd(ə)lstɪk tʃɑ:t/ noun
a chart similar to a bar chart, but showing the opening and close as well as the high and low figures for a particular period. These are shown as lines standing up on top of the body of the chart or hanging down beneath it, so that they look a little like the wick on a candle.
