Bar Charts
Bar charts use vertical bars to show the full price range for each day. If you want to take a longer term view, you can normally change the scale to weekly or monthly bars. Or for a shorter term view, intraday charts such as hourly or five minutes.

The left-hand notch shows you the opening price that day, and the right-hand notch shows you the closing price.
