    Default stock charts...

    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?

    Hello theChameleon,

    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
