The indicators and tools aim to provide information in various approaches:
A cycle is a term to indicate repeating patterns of market movement,
specific to recurrent events, such as seasons, elections, etc. Many
markets have a tendency to move in cyclical patterns. Cycle indicators
determine the timing of a particular market patterns. (Example: Elliott
Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices
move over a given time period. Momentum indicators determine the
strength or weakness of a trend as it progresses over time. Momentum is
highest at the beginning of a trend and lowest at trend turning points. Any
divergence of directions in price and momentum is a warning of weakness;
if price extremes occur with weak momentum, it signals an end of
movement in that direction. If momentum is trending strongly and prices
are flat, it signals a potential change in price direction. (Example:
Stochastic, MACD, RSI).
Market strength describes the intensity of market opinion with reference
to a price by examining the market positions taken by various market
participants. Volume or open interest, are the basic ingredients of this
indicator. Their signals are coincident or leading the market. (Example:
Support and resistance describe price levels where markets repeatedly
rise or fall, and then reverse. This method shows the price levels at which
the market is expected to reverse and stay within the S/R levels (e.g. -
not exceeding the support or the resistance level). This phenomenon is
attributed to basic supply and demand forces. (Example: Trend Lines)
Trend is a term used to describe the persistence of price movement in
one direction over time. Trends move in three directions: up, down and
sideways. Trend indicators smooth variable price data to create a
composite of market direction. Generally, the trend could be either UP,
or DOWN, or TREAD (flat). (Example: Moving Averages, Trend lines).
Describe the intensity of fluctuations in the market prices. A change in
the volatility level hints at a coming change in the price. Volatility is a
general term used to describe the magnitude, or size, of day-to-day price
fluctuations independent of their direction. Generally, changes in
volatility tend to lead changes in prices. (Example: Bollinger Bands).
Unlike the fundamental analyst, the technical analyst is not much concerned
with any of the "bigger picture" factors affecting the market, but
concentrates on the activity of that instrument's market.
