Moving Averages

9, 13, 25, 50, 150 or 200 days

A widely used indicator that helps smooth out price action by filtering out the “noise” from random price fluctuations. A moving average (MA) is a trend-following or lagging indicator because it is based on past prices. The two basic and commonly used MAs are the simple moving average (SMA), which is the simple average of a security over a defined number of time periods, and the exponential moving average (EMA), which gives bigger weight to more recent prices. The most common applications of MAs are to identify the trend direction and to determine support and resistance levels. While MAs are useful enough on their own, they also form the basis for other indicators such as the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD).

BBI

Bullish Bearish Indicator shows the relation between bullish and bearish moving averages. Higher readings shows that the market is too bullish hence could be at a market top but might not be a sign to sell. Similarly lower readings shows the market is too bearish hence could be market bottom which could provide an opportunity to buy.

SAR

The parabolic SAR is used by many chartists to determine the direction of an asset's momentum and the point in time when this momentum has a higher-than-normal probability of switching directions. Sometimes known as the "stop and reversal system", the parabolic SAR is shown as a series of dots placed either above or below an asset's price on a chart.

Bollinger Bands

Bollinger Bands plot volatility bands placed above and below a moving average. Volatility is based on the standard deviation, which changes as volatility increases and decreases. The bands automatically widen when volatility increases and narrow when volatility decreases. This dynamic nature of Bollinger Bands also means they can be used on different securities such as stocks, indices and futures with the standard settings.

VOLMA

Volume Moving Average, as the name indicates, is a moving average of the volume rather than the price. VOLMA represents the average volume over a specified period of time and can be used to chart a stock or index for a period as short as a few minutes to as long as many years.

MACD 

Moving average convergence divergence is a trend-following momentum indicator that shows the relationship between two moving averages of prices. The MACD is calculated by subtracting the 26-day exponential moving average (EMA) from the 12-day EMA. A nine-day EMA of the MACD, called the "signal line", is then plotted on top of the MACD, functioning as a trigger for buy and sell signals

Stochastic

The Stochastic Oscillator is a technical indicator that moves back and forth between 0 and 100, providing a gauge of stock momentum.

The indicator shows how the current price compares to the highest and lowest price over the look back period. Typically the look back is 14 periods; on a weekly chart that is 14 weeks, on an hourly chart 14 hours.

When the indicator is near zero it shows the price is trading near or below the lowest low during the look back period. If the indicator is near 100, the price is trading near or above the highest high during the look back period. Above 50 and the price is trading within the upper portion of the 14 period range; below 50 and the price is trading in the lower portion of the 14 period range.

ROC

The price rate of change (ROC) is a technical indicator of momentum that measures the percentage change in price between the current price and the price ’n’ periods in the past. It is calculated by using the following formula:

ROC = (Most recent closing price - Closing price n periods ago) / Closing price n periods ago x 100

TRIX

A momentum indicator that shows the percentage change in a triple exponentially smoothed moving average. When Triple Exponential Average (TRIX) is applied to triple smoothing of moving averages, it is designed to filter out price movements that are considered insignificant or unimportant. TRIX also produce signals that are similar in nature to the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD).

RSI

The relative strength index is a momentum indicator that compares the magnitude of recent gains and losses over a specified time period to measure speed and change of price movements of a security. It is primarily used to attempt to identify overbought or oversold conditions in the trading of an asset.

ATR

The average true range is a measure of volatility. The true range indicator is the greatest of the following: current high less the current low, the absolute value of the current high less the previous close and the absolute value of the current low less the previous close. The average true range is a moving average, generally 14 days, of the true ranges.

W%R

Williams %R, referred to as the Williams Percent Range, is a momentum indicator that measures overbought and oversold levels, comparable to a stochastic oscillator. The Williams %R is used to establish entry and exit points in the market. It compares the close of a stock to the high-low range over a period of time, typically 14 days
