However, In the candlestick chart, the larger block represents the block that indicates the range between the opening and closing price of the currency pair.

In the candlestick Chart, the filled blocks are represented in Black Color. In our filled body the top represents the opening price and the bottom part of the candle is called the closing price.

If in case the currency price is higher than the opening price then the middle body of the candle will be hollow or unfilled.
