It's called MinMax Plot. Most of classical stock plots need a mix of
several plots in Gnumeric.

I tried it. But it is not what I am talking about. (or maybe I have not understood how to extract the juice I require from it).
It doesn't give 'candlestick'.

The docs, are also not complete (work in progress).

Configuration options are not so limited. Right click on the chart, and
select Properties. In the dialog, select the Series, then the Data tab.
There you can set the data.
For open/close data, use a Dropbar plot.

Hope this helps.

Under 'open-low', it shows 'min-max'. It is confusing.
Again, how to specify 'close'?

I didn't find it intuitive.
In fact, specifying OHLC is an explicit way.
