What is an indicator
An indicator is a mathematical formula that is applied to price data in order to generate trading signals or help traders make better informed decisions. There are thousands of different indicators available for download and many more that can be created custom for each trader.
In general, indicators fall into one of four categories: trend, momentum, volatility, and volume. Trend indicators, like moving averages, help traders identify the direction of the market. Momentum indicators, like Relative Strength Index (RSI), show whether the market is overbought or oversold. Volatility indicators, like Bollinger Bands®, measure how much the price of a security fluctuates.
Types of indicators
There are four types of indicators: leading, lagging, trend and volume. Each type is used to measure different things in the market.
Leading indicators are used to predict future price movements. They give signals before a new move starts and can be used to enter or exit a trade early.
