Indicators & Overlays

Indicator-based analysis is used by many traders to help them make decisions on what trades to take and where to enter and exit them. TradingView has 100+ built-in indicators for market analysis, based on industry-standard formulas and has a rich public library with 500+ custom built indicators, created by talented community developers. Custom indicators are coded in the Pine programming language that allows users to create them from scratch.

Indicators are essentially calculations displayed on the chart based on price and / or volume. Some indicators give clear buy and sell signals, others need to be interpreted by the trader based on their overall strategy. Most users that apply indicators use more than one and look for a combination of signals. Popular indicators are moving averages (MA), the relative strength index (RSI), the moving average convergence divergence (MACD) and bollinger bands (BB).

Head and Shoulders on EURUSD

Possible short idea here, with a head and shoulders coupled with a right shoulder 618% retracement with two bearish 4h pin bars. Also we are on a resistance line here, that might support a bearish move. Possible to get a good RR on this one. Market is volatile so anything might happen, but hopefully we will get a nice clean move down to the red line (50%line). ...

EURUSD Daily Long

Hi all, After the gap price is seemingly getting back on its feet and is currently consolidating between the 50 and 61.8% daily fibs. I am waiting for a retest of the blue medianline to go long, only if it shows enough weakness. A close above the red median will mean we need to wait for a retest of it. What would be most valueble is a test on the confluence of ...

Bullish Triple Cross For Coca-Cola

On April 27, 2017, The Coca-Cola Company () 20 day moving average (DMA) crossed above the 250 DMA, 50 DMA crossed above the 200 DMA, and 100 DMA crossed above the 150 DMA. All three crosses are bullish in nature and have never all occurred on the same day before. Historically the stock does not always rise over the next 20 trading days when each individual cross ...

S&P500 – Bearish inverted hammer

Wednesday’s bearish inverted hammer candle at record highs if followed by a close below 2381 today would open doors for a sell-off to 50-DMA level of 2362 levels. The 50-DMA is now inching closer to being topped out. On the higher side, a daily close above 2400 would add credence to the upward sloping RSI and open doors for 2450 levels over the near term.

Gold Rallies at End of Day. Will it Continue?

Gold fell to a new 2 week low during Wednesday's trading. That is, until the end of the day when the administration's tax plan was released and Gold rallied higher to close the trading session. However, Gold met resistance at the 21 day moving average and if you look at the Heikin-Ashi chart below, today's trading ended in a strong red Heikin-Ashi candle. That ...

Holding LTC and waiting to buy on any weakness. LTC is forming a symmetrical triangle (red lines) within a larger symmetrical triangle (top red line and diagonal lines 3 and 4). MACD is indicating a continuation downward and the RSI is continuing to trend downward. If LTC breaks below the purple trendline and the red triangle we will enter zone C where line 3 and ...

We had taken long positions before this strong rally, and reentered recently. The chart implies that $XRP might break out once more during Q2. I'm holding longs, in anticipation of this rally, and waiting to add more once we do confirm the next rally. Target is around 180% upside from here in the short term, and eventually could go as high as 0.41+-, so it will be ...

I’ve mentioned the AUDNZD twice in April. The first was when the pair was carving out a bull flag and the second just after it had dipped below the 1.0765 key support level. However, the Aussie cross never set up for us as 1.0765 gave out before an opportunity could materialize. But despite last week’s dip, buyers reclaimed 1.0765 at the end of yesterday’s ...

I to strongly advise against shorting Steem at the moment. It's highly probable that a buy back will be impossible. You have a great chance to enjoy a long "UP" trendline.
