Trading Indicators


Majority of technical indicators are derivatives of price, volume, and open interest. Some exotic ones utilize breadth data, tick data, bid/ask information, and price ladder data to compute their values. The goal is simple – to assist the traders in figuring out where the market is heading.

All indicators have their strengths and weaknesses. No indicator is perfect. It does not matter how complex an indicator is computed. If it has no predictive value, it is not going to be useful in your trading. Hence, the important thing is that you understand what your indicator can and cannot do so that you can use it properly.
