There are three different ways to show the motion of a chart :
- Line chart
- Bar chart
- Candlestick chart

Bar charts are similar to candlesticks, except that the candlesticks have a better graphical and analytical state for display.
This chart deals only with the last price and the chart doesn't provide any information about the highest price, the lowest and the starting price of the trades. Therefore, the bar chart can not be used for use in trading psychology.
