## 31 financial indicators

Wikipedia Description (Source: Microsoft)
Accumulation Distribution Uses a relationship between volume and prices to estimate the strength of price movements.  The formula calculates a cumulative total of prices and volumes.  An increase in the value indicates a higher probability that price will increase.  A decrease in the value indicates a higher probability that price will decrease.
Average True Range Measures commitment and compares the range between the High, Low and Close prices.
Bollinger Bands Lines plotted at standard deviation levels above and below a simple moving average of the data.
Chaikin Oscillator It is usually calculated as the difference between a 3-period exponential moving average and a 10-period exponential moving average applied to the Accumulation Distribution.  Useful for monitoring volume flow in a market.
Commodity Channel Index Compares prices with their moving averages.  A value above 100 indicates that the commodity is overbought, and a value below -100 indicates that the commodity is oversold.
Detrended Price Oscillator Detrended Price Oscillator attempts to remove trends from prices.  The formula calculates the difference between price and the moving average.  This is useful for identifying cycles and overbought and oversold price levels.
Ease Of Movement It deals with the relationship between volume and price change, and uses volume to indicate how strong a trend is for prices.  The formula uses the close price and volume to measure the strength of the price trend.  A value close to zero indicates that prices are not moving easily, while a high positive value indicates that prices are going up easily and a high negative value indicates that prices are going down easily.
Envelopes Plotted as lines above and below a moving average using a specified percentage as the shift.  The indicator is used to create signals for buying and selling.  You can specify the percentage the formula uses to calculate the envelopes.
Exponential Moving Average The formula is a moving average of data that gives more weight to the more recent data in the period and less weight to the older data in the period.  This formula produces a moving average that follows the market trend much more quickly than the Weighted Moving Average Formula.  This formula smoothes a data series. This makes analyzing volatile data easier.
MACD This indicator compares two moving averages of prices and is typically used with a 9-period Exponential Moving average as a signal that indicates buying and selling moments.
Mass Index It is used to predicts trend reversals by calculating the range between high and low prices for each period.  A bulge in the index line signals a possible trend reversal.  You can use a 9-period Exponential Moving Average  to determine whether the bulge is a buy or sell signal.
Median Price Median Prices  are mid-point values of prices and can be used as a filter for trend indicators.
Money Flow Compares upward changes and downward changes of volume-weighted typical prices.  It can be used to identify market tops and bottoms.
Negative Volume Index Helps identify a bull market. When the index value is above its moving average there is higher probability for a bull market.  The probability for a bull market is much lower when the index value is below its moving average.
On Balance Volume This indicator measures positive and negative volume flow.
Performance Compares a current closing price with the first closing value from the first time period.  The output is a percentage.
Positive Volume Index Helps identify a bear market. When the index value is below its moving average there is higher probability for a bear market.  The probability for a bear market is much lower when the index value is above its moving average.
Price Volume Trend Calculates a cumulative volume total using relative changes of the close price.  A bullish divergence between the price volume trend indicator and the price indicates that the market is at the bottom.  A bearish divergence between the price volume trend indicator and the price indicates that the market is at the top.
Rate Of Change Compares a specified previous period's closing price with the current price.  The output is a percentage.
Relative Strength Index A momentum oscillator formula that compares upward movements of the close price with downward movements, and outputs values from 0 to 100.  A value close to 100 indicates that the price is about to move downward, and a value close to 0 indicates that the price is about to move upward.
Bollinger Bands A simple moving average of closing prices calculated over a period of time.  The moving average is the most popular price indicator used in technical analysis.
Standard Deviation Used to indicate volatility.  It calculates the difference between values like the close price and their moving average.  A higher Standard Deviation  indicates higher volatility.
Stochastic Oscillator Calculates the simple stochastic indicator (%K) and the smoothed stochastic indicator (%D).  %D is a moving average of %K.  The output is a percentage.  A value more than 80% indicates that the current price is close to the price high, and a value less than 20% indicates that the current price is close to the price low.  This could help to find trend reversals.
Triangular Moving Average An average of data calculated over a period of time where the middle portion of data has more weight.  The formula takes a simple moving average of data and applies a simple moving average on the first moving average.  It is a lagging indicator, and is always behind the price.
TRIX The formula is useful for eliminating short and insignificant cycles in the data.  It smoothes the data three times using the Exponential Moving Average Formula, and then calculates the rate of change in the moving average based on the result for the previous period.
Typical Price The average value of the High, Low and Close prices.
Volatility Chaikins Measures the difference between High and Low prices, and is used to indicate tops or bottoms of the market.  The formula calculates the exponential moving average of the difference between high and low prices, then calculates the rate of change of the exponential moving average.
Volume Oscillator Measures the difference between a short period moving average of volume and a long period moving average of volume.  A positive value indicates a strong trend, and a negative value indicates a weak trend.
Weighted Close Calculates the average value of the High, Low and Close prices, but gives more weight to the close price.
Weighted Moving Average The formula is an average of data that gives more weight to the more recent data in the period and less weight to the older data in the period.  This formula smoothes a data series.  This makes analyzing volatile data easier.
Williams %R A momentum indicator, and is used to measure over-bought or oversold levels.  It is very similar to Stochastic %K , except that the WilliamsR (Williams %R) formula calculates a negative value between 0 and -100 and does not smooth the data.
