hilo
Display a high-low[-open-close] graph view (if possible).
Syntax
hilo(options) o1 o2 [o3 ...]
object_name.hilo(options)
where o1, o2, ..., are series or group objects. For a high-low[-open-close] graph, EViews uses the first series or column as the high series, the second series or column as the low series, and an optional third series or column as the close series. If four series or columns are provided, EViews will use them in the following order: high-low-open-close.
Note that if you wish to display a high-low-open graph, you should use an “NA”-series for the close values.
Options
 
rotate
Rotate the graph so the observation axis is on the left.
Template and printing options
 
o=template
Use appearance options from the specified template. template may be a predefined template keyword (“default” - current global defaults, “classic”, “modern”, “reverse”, “midnight”, “spartan”, “monochrome”) or a graph in the workfile.
t=graph_name
Use appearance options and copy text and shading from the specified graph.
b / -b
[Apply / Remove] bold modifiers of the base template style specified using the “o=” option above.
w / -w
[Apply / Remove] wide modifiers of the base template style specified using the “o=” option above.
reset
Resets all graph options to the global defaults. May be used to remove existing customization of the graph.
p
Print the graph.
The options which support the “–” may be preceded by a “+” or “–” indicating whether to turn on or off the option. The “+” is optional.
Panel options
The following option applies when graphing panel structured data:
 
panel=arg (default taken from global settings)
Panel data display: “stack” (stack the cross-sections), “individual” or “i” (separate graph for each cross-section), “combine” or “c” (combine cross-section graphs in a single frame), “mean” (plot means across cross-sections), “median” (plot median across cross-sections).
(Note: more general versions of these panel graphs may be constructed as categorical graphs.)
Examples
Basic examples
hilo mshigh mslow msclose
displays a high-low-close graph using the series MSHIGH, MSLOW, and MSCLOSE.
group stockprice mshigh mslow msclose
stockprice.hilo(t=templt1)
displays a high-low-close graph of the series in STOCKPRICE, using the settings of the graph object TEMPLT1 as a template.
group g1 mshigh mslow msopen msclose
g1.hilo(p)
plots and prints the high-low-open-close graph of the four series in G1.
Panel examples
stockprice.hilo
displays the high-low-close graph for the stacked panel data.
stockprice.hilo(panel=individual)
displays high-low-close graphs for each cross-section in separate frames.
g1.hilo(panel=mean)
plots the high-low-open-close graph using the means for the series in every period computed across cross-sections.
