Next, we will discuss the colour changes. I m sure there is some voice wondering why there is colour changes during the whole time, suddenly green? Suddenly red? Suddenly yellow??
Green= the last done price is higher than the opening price; Last>Ref
Yellow= the last done price unchanged with the opening price or no transaction; Last=Ref
