jrr7: So that could mean "go 5 counterclockwise" or "go 4 clockwise".

What will the earnings per share be for Q4? - Jim

I don't know what the red/green bars on the left side of the chart mean. Anybody know?

Volume by price: The green part is up-volume, the red is down-volume, for a given price range.
