Do you mean a yahoo-like graph ? Alas, I'm not very familiar with
financial data, so I probably can't help you very much. If you need a
continuous X axis the GDGraph-XY  add-on to GD::Graph might help.
Otherwise I've been pretty happy with Chart  which a coworker discovered
when we ran up against some things we didn't like in GD::Graph. It might
be worth checking out their documentation, which btw is nice because it's
a PDF, and has the examples right there in the docs.
Perhaps a session on generating graphics with Perl might be nice somewhere
down the road?
