      From my other brokerage I am used to having candlesticks appear in a way I am not able to replicate on SSE.I am trying to do the following:

      If the  close is lower than the open the real body is  not filled. The real body is  fillled if the close is higher than the open. The real body is green if the close is higher than the previous day's close and red when lower than the previous day's close

          Thanks for asking this question here in the Community. It is not currently possible to configure the candlestick charts in StreetSmart Edge to display in this manner. The individual candlesticks in StreetSmart Edge only compare the current candles closing price with the closing price of the previous candle and will draw a green candle if the current closing price is higher and will draw a red candle if the current closing price is lower.

          It is possible however, to configure the charts on Schwab.com similar to how you have requested by using the regular 'candlestick' chart type. These types of charts on Schwab.com will display individual candlesticks as follows:

           

          The body of a candlestick can be either hollow or solid.

          Hollow:A candlestick with a hollow body is called a bullish candlestick. The close is higher than the open.
          Solid:A candlestick with a solid body is called a bearish candlestick. The close is lower than the open.

           

          Additionally, a candlestick can be one of three colors.

          Green(Up)The close of the current candlestick is higher than the close of the previous candlestick.
          Grey(Neutral)The close of the current candlestick is the same as the close of the previous candlestick.
          Red(Down)The close of the current candlestick is lower than the close of the previous candlestick.
