How to create stock chart in Excel?
For many stock companies or investors, the stock tables in Excel may be not direct enough to analyze the stock quotation. Now I will talk about creating a stock chart in Excel to better show every detail of the stock.
In general, a stock table includes the stock insurance date, the stock volume, stock opening price, closing price, the highest price and the lowest price just like the below screenshot shown.
In this case, you need to create the Volume-Open-High-Low-Close stock chart.
1. Select the data range, then click Insert > Other Charts > Volume-Open-High-Low-Close stock chart. See screenshot:
Tip: In Excel 2013, click Insert > See All Charts arrow, then in the Insert Chart dialog, select Stock > Volume-Open-High-Low-Close stock chart under All Charts tab, and click OK to close this dialog. See screenshot:
2. Now a stock chart including all stock data is inserted in Excel. See screenshot:
