What is the Equivolume chart in stock market analysis and what are the positives and negatives of using it?
EquiVolume attempts to provide the solution of Volume at Price in a different way. Instead of plotting volume in separate bars, it is in fact incorporated into the price bars themselves.
Visually impressive and extremely easy to interpret.
This type of chart can distort the timeline running across the bottom of the chart.
This makes drawing accurate trend lines more challenging. Only a few stock charting service providers offer EquiVolume.
The beginner should stick to the more mainstream chart formats, OHLC for example.
