Candlestick attributes

If you move the cursor over a candlestick, an info box will sometimes appear next to it showing the attributes of that candlestick. The information given from top to bottom are the Time, Open price, Highest price, Lowest price, Close price and the Volume or the OHLC attributes of the candle. The problem is that it shows on some candlestick and not on all and for those that shows, the cursor must be on certain position of the candlestick so it can be quite frustrating at time to get these information.

Not to worry, there is a much simpler way to get to this information. If you look at the bottom of the screen, you will find the same information given in a horizontal line across, as long as the cursor is on some vertical timeframe position. The best is to place the cursor on the candle that you want to know these information and it will appear like magic and changes as you move to another candle.

Very useful.
