Charting Financial Data
The following toolbox financial charting functions plot financial data and produce presentation-quality figures quickly and easily.
Bollinger band chart
Time series candle plot
Point and figure chart
High, low, open, close chart
Time series High-Low plot
Leading and lagging moving averages chart
These functions work with standard MATLAB® functions that draw axes, control appearance, and add labels and titles. The toolbox also provides a comprehensive set of charting functions that work with
timetable objects, see Chart Technical Indicators.
Here is a Bollinger band chart. This example loads data from an external file (
ibm.dat) and then calls the function using subsets of the data. The MATLAB variable
ibm, which is created by loading
ibm.dat, is a six-column matrix where each row is a trading day's data and where columns 2, 3, and 4 contain the high, low, and closing prices, respectively. The data in
ibm.dat is fictional and for illustrative use only.
