That's not true.  The 'up bars' are present in the following chart:
chart_Series(SPY, subset="2015")

If they're not present in a chart you create, please provide a
reproducible example.

I'm not sure of the reason, but it's been that way since the first

Possibly, though you will need to write some very custom code,
possibly changing chart_Series itself, in ordre to be able to set the
color of individual candlesticks based on the value of another series.
