hi, im looking to write a live stock chart.
are there any APIs that allow me to make the computer draw a candlestick chart (plus draw lines on the same candlestick chart for the various technical indicators)? i tried using JFreeChart and it doesnt look like there are methods to draw lines on the candlestick chart... or is that functionality available but im not aware of it?
Re: stock charts...
I have had limited experience with JFreeChart but I know it's meant to be one of the best so I would be surprised if it didn't have this functionality.
Have you checked the guide? Object Refinery Limited - JFreeChart
There are also some good alternatives here - Open Source Charting & Reporting Tools in Java
Keep us updated.
