  1. Right now, if the axisX interval property is set to 2 and the intervalType is set to Day, it attempts to graph all the days within the range of dates. What if you’re graphic stocks and you only want to graphing on trading days? is this possible? Right now there are empty spaces for every non-trading day, regardless of the values passed in to the data.dataPoints property.

  2. is there a possibility to get the data from a csv file format and render a candletick chart and if there is such a possibility would you mind showing how to do it.
