Appendix G - Chart Indicators





Moving average

A moving average is a price-based indicator that calculates the average stock price over a specific number of periods. The available periods for calculation typically include 5, 10, and 20.

The direction of the moving average carries significant insights into price trends. When the moving average is rising, it indicates a general uptrend in prices. Conversely, a falling moving average suggests that prices, on average, are declining. A rising long-term moving average signifies a long-term uptrend, while a falling long-term moving average indicates a long-term downtrend.


Exponential moving average

An exponential moving average is similar to a simple moving average, but it assigns greater importance to the most recent data.

Due to its heightened responsiveness to new information compared to the simple moving average, the exponential moving average is favored by many technical traders. This enhanced responsiveness is one of the primary reasons it is their preferred choice among moving averages.


Volume average

Volume is the number of shares that trade over a given period of time, usually a day. The higher the volume, the more active the stock. Screen_Shot_2021-01-23_at_4.19.31_PM.png

Bollinger Bands

The indicator shows two deviations from the moving average.



The Relative Strength Index indicator shows the overbought and oversold conditions of a stock. It ranges from 0 to 100.

A stock is likely to be overbought once the RSI approaches the 70 level, meaning that it may be getting. Likewise, if the RSI approaches 30, it is an indication that the asset may be getting oversold and therefore likely to become undervalued.



The Moving Average Convergence Divergence momentum indicator shows the relationship between two moving averages of prices. The most commonly used values are 12, 26, and 9 days, that is, MACD (12,26,9).



The indicator compares the relation of the current price to the price in the past.


Stochastic Fast

The indicator calculates the ratio of two closing price statistics: the difference between the latest closing price and the lowest price in a given number of last days over the difference between the highest and lowest prices in the last days.


Stochastic Slow

The indicator calculates the simple moving average of the Stochastic Fast statistic across given periods.



The Volume-Weighted Average Price indicator provides the average price weighted by volume. It calculates the dollar value of all trading periods divided by the total trading volume for the current day.


The Percentage Price Oscillator indicator that shows the relationship between two moving averages. The end result is a percentage that tells the trader where the short-term average is relative to the longer-term average.

This allows a trader to use the PPO indicator to compare stocks with different prices more easily. For example, regardless of the stock's price, a PPO result of 20 means the short-term average is 20% above the long-term average.


Pivot Points

The indicator is the average of the high, low and closing prices from the previous trading day.
