Complex Finance Charts: Special support for composing sophisticated financial charts - candlestick, OHLC, volume bars, moving averages, price bands, RSI, MACD, Stochastic, Momentum, ROC, OBV, and numerous other technical indicators.

Layer Architecture: Enables new chart styles to be composed easily using chart layers as building blocks.

With alpha transparency support, bottom layers remain visible even if hidden by top layers.

All ChartDirector objects can be filled using these colors.
