Great!, here's a screenshot.

Meanwhile I found a way to get the Y pixel value of a point, as you can 
see, the "19.60" with yellow background refers to the last point in my 
series, and is drawn exactly at the same position of the Close Y Point. 
For this I used GetYImgValue( Index of last point ) of the series.
