There are thousands of various indicators of technical analysis, but if we want to look at just the main tools, we can literally count them on our fingers. The main tool is the Moving Average and it serves as the basis of the overwhelming majority of other indicators, including both trend ones and oscillators as well. In this article we will consider this tool from the point of view of theory and practice.
RSI indicator overview
Trend indicators and oscillators are the most common types of technical analysis tools. Other types of indicators, like volume indicators for example, are used relatively rarely. If the main trend indicators are Moving Average, Bollinger Bands, MACD, and Alligator, then the main oscillator is RSI, which is the Relative Strength Index. In this article we will conduct a detailed review of this tool.
Trading strategy on the Parabolic system
The parabolic system is a good complement to many technical analysis strategies. However, Parabolic SAR is of little interest on its own. The reason for this is its duality, because of which it is unable to recognize periods of low market activity (flats). But in combination with other trend indicators or oscillators, Parabolic shows all its advantages. In this article, we will conduct a detailed review of an SAR-based strategy for Binomo with additional ADX filtering.
MACD indicator overview
The MACD, along with the Moving Average, is one of the main indicators of technical analysis that is actively used by traders of any level. In fact, it is a combination of 2 moving averages, complemented by a histogram that clearly shows the order in which lines are built and the distance between them. Using the tool, you can find reversal points, recognize market divergence, and determine the intensity of trend movement. So, let’s conduct a detailed review of the MACD.
Alligator indicator overview
The purpose of the overwhelming majority of technical analysis indicators is to assist in the timely recognition of trend reversals. This moment represents the optimal point for opening trades on an increase or decrease. Bill Williams’ Alligator is one of the leading trend indicators, and it consists of 3 Moving Average lines and fractals as an additional function. In this article we will conduct a detailed review of this tool, as well as consider simple trading strategies based on it.
