Hi, I'm really new at this and I just realized that there's something extremely basic about the candlesticks that I don't understand.

A solid white stick with black outline and black tails and a solid red stick with red tails are clear. But I just noticed solid black sticks with black tails and solid white sticks with red outline and red tails. I'm not sure what these latter two mean.

If any one could explain this for me I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks, Martin

I'm sorry to have cluttered up the board with this question. I neglected to search first like a dummy. After I posted I searched the tags for "color" and immediately found a clear explanation for my question posted by member "link."

Thanks, link, and again, my apologies.

Martin
