Changing Candle Price Display - From Last Order To ASK



Can someone PLEASE help me understand if the prices used/displayed by the candles can be changed?

They currently default to the order that went through, but here's what I would like to do:

1) low of candle = display the lowest the ASK got instead of the price

2) high of candle = the highest the BID got

If it can't alternate between these two, then the ASK would be ok.

P.S. I thought I did it via the dropdown on 'Style' -> 'Price Type' and changing it to ASK, but this just changes the price displayed next to the stock symbol/name, NOT the prices used by the candles.

Thank You!!

I don't think you can alter the candles on your chart (maybe create a separate candlestick pattern). Below you will find a list of standard candle charts that ThinkorSwim currently offers.
