BOX SIZE Description

A column of Xs is used to illustrate a rising price, while Os represent a falling price.  The box size is the minimum price change that must occur for a given period before a mark (an X or an O) is added to the chart.  For example, if the box size is set to equal one and the stock price $12, then another X will be added to the stack of Xs once the price surpasses $13.
