This WPF Candlestick Chart demonstrates a multi-series chart using the FastCandlestickRenderableSeries with three FastLineRenderableSeries showing the moving average of the closing price.

The example uses the CategoryDateTimeAxis which collapses overnight and weekend gaps in data, but uses the Index to the data to calculate X-position. This means that all DataSeries must have the same number of data-points (you can pad DataSeries using double.NaN for null or empty points).

SciChart’s award-winning WPF Chart Library offers the capacity for high-performance, fully customizable data visualizations that can support millions of data points. We also provide rapid-response support for developers to ensure all your enterprise-level chart dashboards are flawless and you can present the Best WPF Candlestick Chart Analysis Apps.

Example Usage:

  • ZoomPan, left-mouse drag to pan the chart
  • Mousewheel, roll the mousewheel to zoom
  •  ZoomExtents, double click to zoom to extents


To get the effect of hiding the line for the first N points of a moving average, you can insert double.NaN into the XyDataSeries. double.NaN can be used to render gaps or continuous lines.
