I have a bit of experience with Telerik Reports and using Charts. But I have only used one Chart. I was wondering if it is possible to do something like shown in the attachment? Any help provided would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hey.
You can't do that out of the box. But with some code you might get something close to that. 
How I see it:
1) The lines = Line Series
2) The dots = Point Series
3) The vertical Lines = CandleStick without the bars (set BarWidthPercent = 1 for e.g.) and set the OpenValue = CloseValue (YVale = Yvalue2) so the bar's Height = 0
4) The horizontal lines on the top and the bottom of the vertical lines (as part of the CandleStick) = (better skip them) you can get them with the CandlesStick's Bar - Instead of Setting YVale = YValue2, you can set YValue = YValue2 - 1 and also set the BarWidthPerecent to 25 or something like that.  This way, you will achieve a little horizontal line along with the vertical one. Do that twice (once for the bottom and once for the top line).
5) Legend = I don't believe you can have this custom image on the legend but you can still get the same colors as the series).
