Traditional candlesticks

Hey guys, I’m quite new to Plotly. Using it with Python.

I wonder how I switch to a traditional type of candlesticks, like these:

Hi @irmscher,

What do you mean by β€œtraditional”? Comparing your image to https://plot.ly/python/candlestick-charts/#simple-example-with-datetime-objects I’d don’t know what feature you are noticing that is different.

With pyplot I’m getting these by default: https://imgur.com/YrV7wdN

Whereas I’d like to switch to these: //cdck-file-uploads-global.s3.dualstack.us-west-2.amazonaws.com/business7/uploads/plot/original/2X/a/a00fabd0ccd93b5d16d1587503b834a7deef0e84.png

Hi @irmscher,

The fist style is the ohlc trace type (See https://plot.ly/python/ohlc-charts/#simple-ohlc-with-datetime-objects) wheras the second is the candlestick trace type (See https://plot.ly/python/candlestick-charts/).
