    I'm constantly struggling with chart background colors and also candles type... not really sure what's the best to use...

    what's really the most pleasant background colors to use?

    candles? hollow? solid? what color for frames?
  2. Solid candles against a black background for me. I used to use the nice gradient colors for the background, but black is cleaner and easier on the eyes at night.

  9. I like a black background to better show off colors. I don’t use candlestick charts, I like TradeFlow charts. Black works the best for me to contrast the colors of bars and studies.

    I have a personal market blog called hartle & flow, www.hartleandflow.com.
