Time series High-Low plot

Syntax

highlow(tsobj)
highlow(tsobj, color)
highlow(tsobj, color, dateform)
highlow(tsobj, color, dateform, ParameterName, ParameterValue, ...)
hll = highlow(tsobj, color, dateform, ParameterName,
ParameterValue, ...)

Arguments

tsobj

Financial time series object.

color

(Optional) A three-element row vector representing RGB or a color identifier. (See plot in the MATLAB® documentation.)

dateform

(Optional) Date string format used as the x-axis tick labels. (See datetick in the MATLAB documentation.) You can specify a dateform only when tsobj does not contain time-of-day data. If tsobj contains time-of-day data, dateform is restricted to 'dd-mmm-yyyy HH:MM'.

ParameterName

ParameterName can be:

  • HighName: high prices series name

  • LowName: low prices series name

  • OpenName: open prices series name

  • CloseName: closing prices series name

ParameterValue

The parameter value is a string that represents the valid parameter name.

Description

highlow(tsobj) generates a High-Low plot of the data in the financial time series object tsobj. tsobj must contain at least four data series representing the high, low, open, and closing prices. These series must have the names High, Low, Open, and Close (case-insensitive).

highlow(tsobj, color) additionally specifies the color of the plot.

highlow(tsobj, color, dateform) additionally specifies the date string format used as the x-axis tick labels. See datestr for a list of date string formats.

highlow(tsobj, color, dateform, ParameterName, ParameterValue,...) indicates the actual name(s) of the required data series if the data series do not have the default names.

You can specify open prices as optional by providing the parameter name 'OpenName' and the parameter value '' (empty string).

highlow(tsobj, color, dateform, 'OpenName', '')

hhll = highlow(tsobj, color, dateform, ParameterName, ParameterValue, ...) returns the handle to the line object that makes up the High-Low plot.
