This NebGuide focuses on the basics of the bar chart as it depicts market trends on a continuing basis.

This is the first in a series of nine NebGuides dealing with different technical aspects of a market. The series is designed to give producers an opportunity to explore the basics of charting as a marketing approach, and to allow individuals to determine if they are interested in learning more about it.

These marketing NebGuides also are designed as a handy reference packet to aid in understanding what radio announcers and commodity brokers are saying about movements of the market.
