    Hi,

    I am wondering if following items are possible to do with candlestick stock chart.

    I attached the chart we are currently using.

    1. Adding resistance and support lines ( with R1, R2, S1,S2 markers)

    2. Changing size of the candles to be bigger. I tried Min/Max values on the Axis, but candles are still small.

    3. Drawing circle/squares on the candles based on data of each candle.

     

    Thank you.

    Kyaw

    Hello,

    The Chart allows you to customize the rendering of existing charts. This is done via the Drawing API.

    1) You can render additional elements to your specification.
    2, 3) It is possible to override or enhance the rendering of the series visuals (demonstrated here for the Bar Chart).

    I hope this helps.

    Hi,

     

    I checked the series visual, http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/api/javascript/dataviz/ui/chart#configuration-series.visual

    It doesn't say it's applicable for candlestick stockchart.

    Do you have any demo code to make the  candles larger?

     

    Thanks,

    Kyaw

    Hello,

    Sorry, I assumed it does work for candlestick which is indeed not the case.

    That said, simply scaling will skew the indicators so they appear on the wrong date or for the wrong value.
    My suggestion is to increase the line thickness and show less data points so they can take up more space. See the sample snippet.
