A charting method developed in Japan in the 1700s. The high and low for the time period are described as shadow and plotted as a single line. The price range between the open and the close is plotted as a box or rectangle on the line. If the market closes above the open, the body of the box is white or empty. If the close is below the open, the body of the box or rectangle is black.
