Indicators are collections of lines and symbols that are typically (but not always) displayed in

additional panels located above or below the main price panel. (SharpCharts2 also allows you to create "Overlaid" charts where indicators can be positioned behind the price bars or behind other indicators.) Examples of technical indicators include the MACD and the RSI. To add an indicator to your chart, simply select it from an unused dropdown on the left side of the "Indicators" area. The dropdown contains a list of all the indicators we support including:

\ue000
Price - The price data for a specified stock. Typically used to create overlaid charts or
charts that compare one stock to another. Combined with our Ratio Symbol Notation2), it
can be used to create "Price Relative" charts (see below).
\ue000
Price Performance - The percentage change of the closing values of the specified stock.

The first closing value on the left edge of the chart is the starting point for the calculations.
Often used in combination with the "Performance" chart type to create SharpCharts
versions of our dynamic PerfCharts tool.

\ue000
Volume - The volume data for a specific stock. Can be used to position volume several
panels away from the price data or to overlay volume on an indicator.
\ue000
RSI - Common bounded momentum oscillator with overbought/oversold lines at 70 and
30.
\ue000
MACD - Moving Average Convergence/Divergence. Common unbounded momentum

oscillator formed from the difference of two specified EMAs. A signal line is often added
to generate buy/sell signals. The difference between the indicator and the signal line is
displayed as a histogram in the middle of the indicator.

\ue000
MACD Histogram - The difference between the specified MACD line and its signal line
displayed as a histogram. This version only displays the histogram, not the MACD Line or
the signal line.
\ue000
Percentage Price Oscillator (PPO) - A percentage-based version of the MACD.
\ue000
Detrended Price Oscillator (DPO) - Removes long-term trend information from the data
so that shorter-term cycle information can be studied.
\ue000
Commodity Channel Index (CCI) - Removes statistical mean information from the data
so that unusual short-term divergences can be better indentified.
\ue000
Rate-of-Change (ROC) - The difference between current prices and prices 'n' periods
ago. Almost indentical to the "Momentum" indicator (which we do not support, use ROC
instead).
\ue000
Ultimate Oscillator - Weighted sum of three different oscillators - a short-term one, a
medium-term one, and a long-term one.
\ue000
TRIX - A momentum oscillator that shows the percent rate-of-change of a triply smoothed
average of the stock's closing prices.
\ue000
Full Stochastics - A common bounded oscillator that shows where prices are now relative
to where they have been in the past. Full stochastics takes three parameters allowing for
complete control over the calculation.
\ue000
Slow Stochastics - An easier-to-use, 2-paramter version of the Stochastics oscillator for
longer-term trading.
\ue000
Fast Stochastics - An easier-to-use, 2-paramter version of the Stochastics oscillator for
shorter-term trading.
\ue000
StochRSI - A bounded oscillator that uses the stochastics oscillator on the RSI indicator
(instead of on closing values).
\ue000
On Balance Volume (OBV) - A cummulative sum of volume for up days minus volume
for down days. Note: The actual value of the OBV changes depending on where the left
edge of the chart is and therefore is not displayed.
\ue000
Accumulation/Distribution Line - A weighted sum of volume for up days minus volume
for down days. Note: The actual value of the OBV changes depending on where the left
edge of the chart is and therefore is not displayed.
\ue000
Chaikin Oscillator - An oscillator based on the movement of the
Accumulation/Distribution Line.
\ue000
Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) - An oscillator that combines price and volume to estimate
money moving into and out of a stock.
\ue000
Money Flow Index (MFI) - An RSI-like oscillator that includes volume in its
calculations.
\ue000
Percent Volume Oscillator (PVO) - A volume-based version of the PPO.
\ue000
Wilder's DMI (ADX) - A system of three lines designed to show the direction and
strength of a stock's current trend.
\ue000
Average True Range (ATR) - A volatility indicator based on an average of each period's
"True Range."
\ue000
Aroon - A trend-determination system based on the number of days since a recent high or
low has been set.
\ue000
Aroon Oscillator - An oscillator formed from the two lines that make up the Aroon
system.
\ue000
Bollinger Band Width - The absolute distance from the top Bollinger Band to the bottom
one.
\ue000
Bollinger's %b - An oscillator showing where prices are currently located relative to the
upper and lower Bollinger Bands.
\ue000
Standard Deviation - A statistical measure of volatility.
\ue000
Slope - The rise (or fall) in closing values divided by the specified number of periods.
