INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Equivolume'

This type of chart is very similar to Japanese candlesticks except that volume is incorporated into the data point rather than added as an indicator on the side. Generally, a wide bar is deemed to be more significant than a thin bar because large volume usually precedes a significant price move.
