Indicators

Supertrend

Common ways to use Supertrend

  1. Buy Strategy
    If your strategy is to buy when the supertrend indicator indicates buy (green arrows as per charts) then use: Supertrend crosses below close
  2. Sell strategy
    If your strategy is to sell when the supertrend indicator indicates sell (red arrows as per the charts) then use: Supertrend crosses above close

RSI

Common ways to use RSI

  1. Buy strategy
    If your strategy is to buy when the RSI is oversold (usually indicated by the RSI being lower 20) then use: RSI higher than 20
  2. Sell strategy
    If your strategy is to sell when the RSI is overbought (usually indicated by the RSI being higher 80) then use: RSI lower than 80

Simple Moving Average (SMA)

Multiple strategies can be formed with SMA

  1. Buy strategy
    If the short term trend is bullish, then you can use: SMA(20) higher than SMA(40)
  2. Sell strategy
    If the short term trend is bearish, then you can use: SMA(20) lower than SMA(40)

Exponential Moving Average (EMA)

Common ways to use EMA

  1. Buy strategy
    If the short term trend is bullish, then you can use: EMA(20) higher than EMA(40)
  2. Sell strategy
    If the short term trend is bearish, then you can use: EMA(20) lower than EMA(40)

At Price

At price is a price based signal (usually works when the LTP of the stock is in a price range)
Example: If you want to buy NSE-SBIN at 300 (with 0.5% variation) then, when the price falls in the range 298.5 to 301.5, a buy/sell signal will be triggered.

ADX

ADX is a momentum indicator. It is defined by 3 components: The +DI (Plus Directional Indicator) line/value, the -DI (Minus Directional Indicator) line/value and the ADX (Average Directional Index) line/value itself. The +DI and -DI measures trend direction over time, whereas the ADX measures the strength of the trend (regardless of direction) over time.
They can be used together as shown in the examples below:

  1. Buy strategy: +DI(14) crosses above -DI(14) and ADX(14) higher than 20
  2. Sell strategy: -DI(14) crosses above +DI(14) and ADX(14) higher than 20

Parabolic SAR (PSAR)

SAR stands for Stand And Reverse, which means when signals appear the trader gets out of the former position and initiates a new one.
Based on Welles Wilder’s system (creator of PSAR), when the trend is down the indicator dots are above the price candles and when the trend is up, the dots are below the price candle.
Example:

  1. Buy signal to identify a bullish trend, PSAR crosses below Low
  2. Sell signal to identify a bearish trend, PSAR crosses above High

Commodity Channel Index (CCI)

CCI measures the current price level relative to an average price level over a given period of time.
CCI is relatively high when prices are far above their average. CCI is relatively low when prices are far below their average. In this way, CCI can be used to identify overbought and oversold levels. It is not range bound.
Common ways to use CCI:

  1. Buy strategy: If your strategy is to identify when the stock is oversold (usually indicated by the CCI being lower than -100) and you want to buy when the stock breaks the oversold region and crosses above then use, 20 CCI crosses above 100
  2. Sell strategy: If your strategy is to identify when the stock is overbought (usually indicated by the CCI being higher than 100) and you want to sell when the stock breaks the overbought region and crosses below then use 20 CCI crosses below -100

Comparators

All the indicator values are calculated w.r.t to the candle intervals

  1. higher than - The value of indicator 1 is higher than the value of indicator For ex: If the strategy is 5SMA higher than 7SMA, the trigger will happen when the value of 5SMA is above the value of 7SMA for the given candle interval
  2. lower than - The value of indicator 1 is lower than the value of indicator 2
    For ex: If the strategy is 5SMA lower than 7SMA, the trigger will happen when the value of 5SMA is below the value of 7SMA for the given candle interval
  3. equal to - The value of indicator 1 is equal to the value of indicator 2
    For ex: If the strategy is 5SMA equal to 7SMA, the trigger will happen when the value of 5SMA is equal to the value of 7SMA for the given candle interval.
  4. crosses above - The value of indicator 1 goes higher than the value of indicator 2
    For ex: If the strategy is 5SMA crosses above 7SMA, the trigger will happen when the 5SMA line moves up above the 7SMA line for the given candle interval. The trigger will happen only if the value of 5SMA was below the value of 7SMA in the previous candle.
  5. crosses below - The value of indicator 1 goes lower than the value of indicator 2
    For ex: If the strategy is 5SMA crosses below 7SMA, the trigger will happen when the 5SMA line moves down below the 7SMA line for the given candle interval. The trigger will happen only if the value of 5SMA was above the value of 7SMA in the previous candle

Double Exponential Moving Average (DEMA)

DEMA reduces the lag to a greater extent as compared to an EMA. It's usage is typical to that of any other moving average. It works best when the market is trending, and not when the market is sideways. It can be used with other moving averages, OHLC prices of the candle or with a number. Example:

  1. Buy strategy: If the short term trend is bullish, then you can use: 10 DEMA crosses above 20 DEMA or Close crosses above 30 DEMA
  2. Sell strategy: If the short term trend is bearish, then you can use: 10 DEMA crosses below 20 DEMA or Close crosses below 30 DEMA

Triple Exponential Moving Average (TEMA)

TEMA reduces the lag to a greater extent as compared to a DEMA. It's usage is typical to that of any other moving average. It works best when the market is trending, not when the market is sideways. It can be used with other moving averages, OHLC prices of the candle or with a number. Example:

  1. Buy strategy: If the short term trend is bullish, then you can use 10 TEMA crosses above 20 TEMA or Close crosses above 30 TEMA
  2. Sell strategy: If the short term trend is bearish, then you can use 10 TEMA crosses below 20 TEMA or Close crosses below 30 TEMA

Weighted Moving Average (WMA)

WMA reduces the lag as compared to an SMA. It's usage is typical to that of any other moving average. It can be used with other moving averages, OHLC prices of the candle or with a number. Example:

  1. Buy strategy: If the short term trend is bullish, then you can use 10 WMA crosses above 20 WMA or Close crosses above 30 WMA
  2. Sell strategy: If the short term trend is bearish, then you can use 10 WMA crosses below 20 WMA or Close crosses below 30 WMA

Triangular Moving Average (TMA)

TMA is smoother than an SMA and is not as sensitive to price changes as an EMA. It is best used in highly volatile markets. It's usage is typical to that of any other moving average. It can be used with other moving averages, OHLC prices of the candle or with a number. Example:

  1. Buy strategy: If the short term trend is bullish, then you can use 10 TMA crosses above 20 TMA or Close crosses above 30 TMA
  2. Sell strategy: If the short term trend is bearish, then you can use 10TMA crosses below 20 TMA or Close crosses below 30 TMA

Money Flow Index (MFI)

MFI is an oscillator that uses both price and volume to measure buying and selling pressure. MFI is also known as volume-weighted RSI. It's value oscillates between 0 and 100. As a momentum oscillator tied to volume, the MFI is best suited to identify reversals and price extremes with a variety of signals.
Common ways to use MFI:

  1. Buy strategy: If your strategy is to buy when the MFI is oversold (usually indicated by the MFI being lower 20) then use 14 MFI crosses above 20
  2. Sell strategy: If your strategy is to sell when the MFI is overbought (usually indicated by the MFI being higher 80) then use 14 MFI crosses below 80

MACD and MACD Signal

MACD (Moving Average Convergence/Divergence) is a momentum indicator. It has 2 main components: MACD line and MACD Signal Line. Example:

  1. Buy strategy: If you want to buy when the MACD crosses above the MACD Signal line then use MACD(12,26,9) crosses above MACD Signal(12,26,9)
  2. Sell strategy: If you want to sell when the MACD crosses below the MACD Signal line then use MACD(12,26,9) crosses below MACD Signal(12,26,9)

Bollinger Bands (UBB, MBB, LBB)

Bollinger bands has 3 parts: Upper Bollinger Band (UBB), Middle Bollinger Band (MBB) and Lower Bollinger Band (LBB)
Bollinger Bands are volatility bands placed above and below a moving average. Volatility is based on the standard deviation, which changes as volatility increases and decreases. They can be used together as shown in the examples below:

  1. Buy strategy: Buy when Close crosses above LBB(20,2)
  2. Sell strategy: Sell when Close crosses below UBB(20,2)

Williams % R

Williams % R is a range bound oscillator that oscillates from 0 to -100.
The Fast Stochastic Oscillator and Williams % R produce the exact same lines, only the scaling is different. Readings from 0 to -20 are considered overbought. Readings from -80 to -100 are considered oversold. Common ways to use Williams % R

  1. Buy strategy: If your strategy is to identify when the stock is oversold (usually indicated by the Williams % R being below -80) and you want to buy when the stock breaks the oversold region and crosses above, then use, 14 Williams % R crosses above -80
  2. Sell strategy: If your strategy is to identify when the stock is overbought (usually indicated by the Williams % R being above -20) and you want to sell when the stock breaks the overbought region and crosses below, then use, 14 Williams % R crosses below -20

Momentum Indicator (MOM)

The Momentum indicator is a speed of movement indicator designed to identify the speed (or strength) of price movement. The momentum indicator compares the most recent closing price to a previous closing price (can be the closing price of any time frame). Common ways to use Momentum Indicator:

  1. Buy strategy: 14 MOM crosses above 0
  2. Sell strategy: 14 MOM crosses below 0

Price Rate Of Change (PROC)

The price rate of change (PROC) is a technical indicator of momentum that measures the percentage change in price between the current price and the price of periods in the past. The PROC is an oscillator that fluctuates above and below the zero line as the Rate-of-Change moves from positive to negative. Common ways to use PROC:

  1. Buy strategy: 14 PROC crosses above 0
  2. Sell strategy: 14 PROC crosses below 0

On Balance Volume (OBV)

On-balance volume (OBV) is a momentum indicator that uses volume flow to predict changes in stock price.Common ways to use OBV:

  • Trend Identification

    1. Bullish trend: Price advances and OBV also advances.
    2. Bearish trend: Price declines and OBV also declines.
  • Divergence

    1. Bullish OBV divergence: Price declines but OBV advances.
    2. Bearish OBV divergence: Price advances but OBV declines.

Prev N

Prev N and Prev N volume lets you us access the OHLCV, values of any past candle. Offset is the number that is used to refer to the candle. The offset of the current candle is '0' and '-1' is the previous offset for previous candle. Similarly, for 2nd last candle, the offset value is '-2' and so on..

Prev N should not be used with offset as 0

Prev N offset value need to be a value less than 0, since using 0 offeset would mean accessing current candle value and will cause the strategy to have a look-ahead bias.

Prev N timeframe should be the same or a multiple of the Base timeframe

Example: Lets say the timeframe that you have set for a strategy is 3 min, this is the Base timeframe. Now, if you want to use Prev N, you need to keep in mind that the timeframe of Prev N should be either 3 min or it should be a multiple of 3 min, like 15min. Using different timeframes in the same strategy requires using compatible Base timeframe. If you want to use 15min timeframe with a 5min Base timeframe, it is possible. You can also use 10min in the same strategy since 5 is a factor of both 10 and 15, 5x2=10 and 5x3=15. But you should not use a 3min Base timeframe for a 10min Prev N, since 3 is not a factor of 10.

Nth Candle

Nth candle indicator is used to access nthe Open, High, Low and Close of any candle for that day. The candle number starts with '1' which represents the 1st candle of the day and '2' represents the 2nd candle of the day.
