Stock Data Analysis is no easy feat!  Once you have a lot of historical stock data it’s hard to visualize the trend using technical analysis.

Thankfully Excel has a lot of stock charts to help you with that, and one of them is the Candlestick Chart!

A Candlestick Chart has a vertical line that indicates the range of low to high prices and a thicker column for the opening and closing prices:

You need a Date column which should be the first column.

Then this should be followed by a Open, High, Low, and Close column. This is the exact order that needs to be followed in order to create the Candlestick Chart.

STEP 1: Highlight your data of stock prices:
