    Good morning Whipsaw! Answer is no for both (unfortunately ). I do believe the gain/ or loss is computed by comparing the close to the prior close. Yesterday, both candles were red and empty on daily charts, which means it closed at the top of the candle's body. So empty reds look worse than they actually are, but they are still a loss.

    I looked into this recently and put it on my post, #3584:

    Note - Explanation on candlesticks:

    Candlestick Colors- BLACK versus RED -
    BLACK means it closed higher than previous candlestick's close.
    RED means it closed lower than previous close.

    Candlestick Fill - EMPTY versus FILLED Candle -
    EMPTY candle means it closed higher than it opened (i.e. price started at bottom of candle and ended at top of candle).
    SOLID candle means it closed lower than it opened (i.e. price started at top of candle and ended at bottom of candle).
    Typically you get SOLID RED and EMPTY BLACK candles.

    Less Common:
    SOLID Black forms when price gaps up (at start of period) and then falls, but was still above close from prior period (e.g. prior day on daily chart). Note: So, Price closes at bottom of black solid candle body (not at top).

    EMPTY Red forms when price gaps down (at start of period) and then goes up, but was still below prior period close (e.g. prior day on daily chart). Note: So, Price closes at top of red empty candle body (not at bottom).

    Interesting... I just went back and looked at the charts after the open and the position of yesterday's candle change, at least on the S-fund.

    We're at resistance, do we break through?

    As the song says "Break on through to the other side...break on through to the other side".

    If I'm reading this right, S-Fund is the place to be... anyone else seeing the same thing?
