Accumulation Distribution Line
Introduction
Developed by Marc Chaikin, the Accumulation Distribution Line is a volume-based indicator designed to measure the cumulative flow of money into and out of a security. Chaikin originally referred to the indicator as the Cumulative Money Flow Line. As with cumulative indicators, the Accumulation Distribution Line is a running total of each period's Money Flow Volume.

Aroon
Introduction
Developed by Tushar Chande in 1995, Aroon is an indicator system that determines whether a stock is trending or not and how strong the trend is. “Aroon” means “Dawn's Early Light” in Sanskrit. Chande chose this name because the indicators are designed to reveal the beginning of a new trend. The Aroon indicators measure the number of periods since price recorded an x-day high or low. There are two separate indicators: Aroon-Up and Aroon-Down. A 25-day Aroon-Up measures the nu…text/html2019-09-07T00:25:00+0000Anonymous (anonymous@undisclosed.example.com)Aroon Oscillator

Developed by J. Welles Wilder, the Average True Range (ATR) is an indicator that measures volatility. As with most of his indicators, Wilder designed ATR with commodities and daily prices in mind.

Introduction
The Detrended Price Oscillator (DPO) is an indicator designed to remove trend from price and make it easier to identify cycles. DPO does not extend to the last date because it is based on a displaced moving average. However, alignment with the most recent date is not an issue because DPO is not a momentum oscillator. Instead, DPO is used to identify cycle highs/lows and estimate cycle length.text/html2019-09-07T00:13:39+0000Anonymous (anonymous@undisclosed.example.com)DecisionPoint Price Momentum Oscillator (PMO)

DecisionPoint Price Momentum Oscillator (PMO)
Introduction
Developed by Carl Swenlin, the DecisionPoint Price Momentum Oscillator (PMO) is an oscillator based on a Rate of Change (ROC) calculation that is smoothed twice with exponential moving averages that use a custom smoothing process. Because the PMO is normalized, it can also be used as a relative strength tool.

Introduction
Standard deviation is a statistical term that measures the amount of variability or dispersion around an average. Standard deviation is also a measure of volatility. Generally speaking, dispersion is the difference between the actual value and the average value. The larger this dispersion or variability is, the higher the standard deviation. The smaller this dispersion or variability is, the lower the standard deviation. Chartists can use the standa…text/html2019-09-07T00:20:24+0000Anonymous (anonymous@undisclosed.example.com)Stochastic Oscillator

Stochastic Oscillator
Introduction
Developed by George C. Lane in the late 1950s, the Stochastic Oscillator is a momentum indicator that shows the location of the close relative to the high-low range over a set number of periods.

StochRSI
Introduction
Developed by Tushar Chande and Stanley Kroll, StochRSI is an oscillator that measures the level of RSI relative to its high-low range over a set time period. StochRSI applies the Stochastics formula to RSI values, rather than price values, making it an indicator of an indicator. The result is an oscillator that fluctuates between 0 and 1.text/html2019-09-07T00:21:24+0000Anonymous (anonymous@undisclosed.example.com)TRIX

TRIX
Introduction
TRIX is a momentum oscillator that displays the percent rate of change of a triple exponentially smoothed moving average. It was developed in the early 1980's by Jack Hutson, an editor for Technical Analysis of Stocks and Commodities magazine. With its triple smoothing, TRIX is designed to filter out insignificant price movements. Chartists can use TRIX to generate signals similar to MACD. A signal line can be applied to look for signal line crossovers. A directional bias can…text/html2019-09-07T00:29:44+0000Anonymous (anonymous@undisclosed.example.com)True Strength Index (TSI)

True Strength Index (TSI)
Developed by William Blau and introduced in Stocks & Commodities Magazine, the True Strength Index (TSI) is a momentum oscillator based on a double smoothing of price changes. Even though several steps are needed for calculation, the indicator is actually pretty straightforward. By smoothing price changes, TSI captures the ebbs and flows of price action with a steadier line that filters out the noise. As with most momentum oscillators, chartists can derive signals from…text/html2019-09-07T00:29:21+0000Anonymous (anonymous@undisclosed.example.com)Ulcer Index

Ulcer Index
Developed by Peter Martin and Byron McCann in 1987, the Ulcer Index is a volatility indicator that measures downside risk. It was first introduced in their 1989 book, The Investor's Guide to Fidelity Funds. Originally, the index was designed with mutual funds in mind, which is why it is only focused on downside risk. Mutual funds are designed to make money by increasing in value; the only risk, therefore, is the drawdown or downside. As its name implies, the Ulcer Index measures the…text/html2020-08-03T16:24:29+0000Anonymous (anonymous@undisclosed.example.com)Ultimate Oscillator

The multiple timeframe objective seeks to avoid the pitfalls of other oscillators. Manytext/html2019-06-24T19:38:59+0000Anonymous (anonymous@undisclosed.example.com)Volume-by-Price

Volume-by-Price
Introduction
Volume-by-Price is an indicator that shows the amount of volume for a particular price range, which is based on closing prices. Volume-by-Price bars are horizontal and shown on the left side of the chart to correspond with these price ranges. Chartists can view these bars as a single color or with two colors to separate up volume and down volume. By combining volume and closing prices, this indicator can be used to identify high-volume price ranges to mark support …text/html2019-09-07T00:29:00+0000Anonymous (anonymous@undisclosed.example.com)Vortex Indicator

Vortex Indicator
Developed by Etienne Botes and Douglas Siepman, the Vortex Indicator consists of two oscillators that capture positive and negative trend movement. In creating this indicator, Botes and Seipman drew on the work of Welles Wilder and Viktor Schauberger, who is considered the father of implosion technology. Despite a rather involved formula, the indicator is quite easy to interpret. A bullish signal triggers when the positive trend indicator crosses above the negative trend indica…text/html2019-06-24T19:39:00+0000Anonymous (anonymous@undisclosed.example.com)Volume Weighted Average Price (VWAP)

Volume Weighted Average Price (VWAP)
Introduction
Volume-Weighted Average Price (VWAP) is exactly what it sounds like: the average price weighted by volume. VWAP equals the dollar value of all trading periods divided by the total trading volume for the current day. The calculation starts when trading opens and ends when it closes. Because it is good for the current trading day only, intraday periods and data are used in the calculation.text/html2019-09-07T00:27:20+0000Anonymous (anonymous@undisclosed.example.com)Williams %R

Introduction
Developed by Larry Williams, Williams %R is a momentum indicator that is the inverse of the Fast Stochastic Oscillator. Also referred to as %R, Williams %R reflects the level of the close relative to the highest high for the look-back period. In contrast, the Stochastic Oscillator reflects the level of the close relative to the lowest low. %R corrects for the inversion by multiplying the raw value by -100. As a result, the Fast Stochastic Oscillator and Williams %R pro…text/html2019-06-24T19:38:59+0000Anonymous (anonymous@undisclosed.example.com)ZigZag

ZigZag
Introduction
The ZigZag feature on SharpCharts is not an indicator per se, but rather a means to filter out smaller price movements. A ZigZag set at 10 would ignore all price movements less than 10%; only price movements greater than 10% would be shown. Filtering out smaller movements gives chartists the ability to see the forest instead of just trees. It is important to remember that the ZigZag feature has no predictive power because it draws lines based on hindsight. Any predictive po…
