We’re happy to announce the new major Highcharts release 9.2, including upgrades to our Stock product (check the changelog for more details):
New Series Types
1. Heikin Ashi
The Heikin Ashi series is similar to the Candlestick charts, but uses the previous point’s values to render the next point making it an excellent chart to spot trends.
2. Hollow Candlestick
The Hollow candlestick chart is a mixed concept between the traditional candlestick chart and the Heikin Ashi chart with a little extra. The candles provide more details (red, green, hollow) out of the single candle providing better data readability for end users.
1. Technical Indicators
We have improved a few aspects of Highcharts Stock technical indicators.
Now you can create your own multiline technical indicators. Additionally, multiline technical indicators (e.g. Bollinger Bands, or the one you will create in the future) from now on support Compare modes.
2. Faster Stock Charts
Now your charts will load 30% faster if you have an irregular dataset and use Ordinal Axis thanks to the successful refactoring of the Ordinal Axis.
