# KagiChart

KagiChart[{{date1, p1}, {date2, p2}, ...}]
makes a Kagi chart with prices at date .

KagiChart[{"name", daterange}]
makes a Kagi chart of closing prices for the financial entity over the date range daterange.

KagiChart[{...}, rt]
makes a Kagi chart with reversal threshold rt.

## Details and OptionsDetails and Options

• A Kagi chart is drawn as a series of vertical lines connected by horizontal lines. Prices are drawn in a column until the price reverses by more than the threshold rt, when a new column is started with a horizontal line connecting to the previous column.
• The style of the lines changes when the price rises above the high of the previous column or drops below the low of the previous column.
• KagiChart[...] is equivalent to KagiChart[..., {"Relative", 0.02}] for a reversal threshold of 2% of the average price.
• The following arguments can be used to specify the reversal threshold rt:
•  {"Percent",p} percent of previous price {"Relative",p} fraction of price range (default) {"Absolute",p} absolute price change
• The dates are considered an ordered sequence of events and are not shown on an absolute time scale.
• The date formats for are the same as used in DateListPlot.
• The and daterange are the same as used in FinancialData.
• Data elements for KagiChart can be given in the following forms:
•  {datei,pi} a pure date-price pair wi[{datei,pi},...] a date-price pair and wrapper formi->mi a date-price pair with metadata
• A line segment may represent several date-price pairs, and the corresponding wrappers will apply to the entire line segment.
• Data not given in these is taken to be missing and typically is excluded when generating the chart.
• Data for KagiChart can be given in the following forms:
•  {e1,e2,...} list of elements with or without wrappers w[{e1,e2,...}] wrapper applied to the whole data
• The following wrappers can be used for data elements:
•  Annotation[e,label] provide an annotation Button[e,action] define an action to execute when the element is clicked EventHandler[e,...] define a general event handler for the element Hyperlink[e,uri] make the element act as a hyperlink Labeled[e,...] display the element with labeling PopupWindow[e,cont] attach a popup window to the element StatusArea[e,label] display in the status area when the element is moused over Style[e,opts] show the element using the specified styles Tooltip[e,label] attach an arbitrary tooltip to the element
• In KagiChart, Labeled and Placed allow the following positions:
•  Above, Below, Before, After positions outside point or figure {lx,ly} scaled position in the label
• KagiChart has the same options as Graphics with the following additions and changes:
•  AspectRatio 1/GoldenRatio overall ratio of width to height Axes True whether to draw axes ChartBaseStyle Automatic overall style for bars DateFunction Automatic how to convert dates to standard form EventLabels None events to label GridLines Automatic grid lines to draw GridLinesStyle Automatic style for grid lines PerformanceGoal \$PerformanceGoal aspects of performance to try to optimize TrendStyle Automatic how to style up and down trends ScalingFunctions None how to scale the axis
• With ScalingFunctions->sy, the function is applied to the prices. ScalingFunctions only affects the display and none of the controls.
• Style and other specifications from options and other constructs in KagiChart are effectively applied in the order TrendStyle, Style and other wrappers, with later specifications overriding earlier ones.
