import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

# SCATTER
ax.scatter(x,y,color="red",s=6,marker='x',label="label var y")

# LINE
ax.plot(x,y,color="red","-",label="label var y")

# LINE DATES
ax.plot_date(datetime_array,y,"-",label="label var y")

# VERTICAL LINE
ax.axvline(x, color='k', linestyle='--')
plt.axvline(x)

# HISTOGRAM
plt.hist(y, bins=range(0,25,1),normed=True,alpha=0.5,label="label var y")
# without plot
freq, bins = np.histogram(ws,normed=True,bins=range(0,30,1))

# add values on top of bars

    for rect in rects:

# BOXPLOT DIAGRAM
plt.boxplot(data) # where data is array (matrix) of data
