# Technical

All metrics in this category have a default 14 day trailing period (the default of the lookback days in the app), and can be changed by changing the lookback days period in the chart settings gearbox.

Data for Technical Indicators is calculated in real-time.

## Momentum

### Average Directional Index

The Average Directional Index (ADX) measures the strength of the trend (regardless of direction) over time. It can be used to find out whether the market is ranging or starting a new trend.

### Average Directional Movement Index Rating

Average Directional Movement Index Rating quantifies momentum change in the ADX . It is calculated by adding two values of ADX (the current value and a value *n* periods back), then dividing by two. This additional smoothing makes the ADXR slightly less responsive than the ADX. The interpretation is the same as the ADX—the higher the value, the stronger the trend.

### Absolute Price Oscillator

The Absolute Price Oscillator (APO) is based on the absolute differences between two moving averages of different lengths, a ‘Fast’ and a ‘Slow’ moving average.

### Balance of Power

Balance of Power (BOP) is an oscillator that measures the strength of buying and selling pressure. BOP oscillates around zero line, where positive values indicate Bull market dominance and negative values indicate Bear market dominance.

### Chande momentum oscillator

Chande momentum oscillator computes relative strength visually through patterns that are similar to Wilders RSI, with relative positioning between highs and lows determining the longer-term bullish or bearish outlook.

### Commodity Channel Index

Developed by Donald Lambert, the Commodity Channel Index (CCI) is a momentum-based oscillator used to help determine when an investment vehicle is reaching a condition of being overbought or oversold.

### MACD

MACD is a momentum indicator that helps assess the trend of the market using exponential moving averages. What makes the MACD so informative is that it is actually the combination of two different types of indicators. First, the MACD employs two Moving Averages of varying lengths (which are lagging indicators) to identify trend direction and duration. Then, it takes the difference in values between those two Moving Averages (MACD Line) and an EMA of those Moving Averages (Signal Line) and plots that difference between the two lines as a histogram which oscillates above and below a center Zero Line.

### Money Flow Index

The Money Flow Index (MFI) is a technical oscillator that uses price and volume data for identifying overbought or oversold signals in an asset.

### Momentum

Momentum is a leading indicator measuring a security's rate-of-change. It compares the current price with the previous price from a number of periods ago.The ongoing plot forms an oscillator that moves above and below 0. It is a fully unbounded oscillator and has no lower or upper limit. Bullish and bearish interpretations are found by looking for divergences, centerline crossovers and extreme readings.

### Percentage Price Oscillator

The percentage price oscillator (PPO) is a technical momentum indicator that shows the relationship between two moving averages in percentage terms. The moving averages are a 26-period and 12-period exponential moving average (EMA).

### RSI

The relative strength index (RSI) is a momentum indicator used in technical analysis that measures the magnitude of recent price changes to evaluate overbought or oversold conditions in the price of a stock or other asset.

### RSI Intraday High

The relative strength index (RSI) Intraday High metric calculates RSI using only the "High" of the day prices to measure momentum on an Intraday to Intraday Basis.

### RSI Intraday Low

The relative strength index (RSI) Intraday High metric calculates RSI using only the "Low" of the day prices to measure momentum on an Intraday to Intraday Basis.

### Rate of Change

The simple return for a given time period of an asset. Use it to calculate the percent change in price between periods. ROC takes the current price and compares it to a price "n" periods (user defined) ago. The calculated value is then plotted and fluctuates above and below a Zero Line.

### Williams %R

Williams %R, or just %R, is a technical analysis oscillator showing the current closing price in relation to the high and low of the past N days. It was developed by a publisher and promoter of trading materials, Larry Williams.

## Price Action

### Bullish Outside Reversal

An outside reversal occurs when a security’s high and low prices for the day exceed the high and low of the previous day’s trading session. The outside reversal is considered bullish when the end-of -day price of the security closes above the high of the previous day.

### Bearish Outside Reversal

An outside reversal occurs when a security’s high and low prices for the day exceed the high and low of the previous day’s trading session. The outside reversal is considered bearish when the end-of -day price of the security closes below the low of the previous day.

### Inside Day

An inside day is a two-day price pattern that occurs when a second day has a range that is completely inside the first day's price range. The high of the second day is lower than the first, and the low of the second is higher than the first.

### Days Up

The number of consecutive days a given asset has recorded a positive close.

### Days Down

Number of consecutive days a given asset has recorded a negative close.

### Price/MA

SMA The price of an asset divided by the value of its moving average (SMA), an indicator that represents the average of a selected range of closing prices, divided by the number of days or other time intervals in that range.

### Price/BBU

The price of an asset divided by the value of its upper bollinger band, a momentum indicator used to derive volatility-calibrated price channels.

### Price/BBL

The price of an asset divided by the value of its lower bollinger band, a momentum indicator used to derive volatility-calibrated price channels.
