Moving Average (Exponential)

 Parameters Period Usage EMA(days) Description Similar to the simple moving average, the exponential moving average computes the average share price of a stock. Instead of computing a simple average, the ema uses previous values of the ema along with a smoothing factor to compute the average price. Examples Fetcher[EMA(15) crossed below EMA(50)] Fetcher[Price crossed above the EMA(10) and the EMA(10) is below the EMA(50)]

Moving Average (Simple)

 Parameters Period Usage Moving Average(days)MA(days) Description The simple moving average uses the specified number of days to compute the average share price for a given stock. Typically used to indicate the position of a stock relative to it's recent history. Examples Fetcher[MA(10) crossed above MA(50)] Fetcher[Price crossed below the MA(30)]

Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD)

 Parameters Period Fast EMAPeriod Slow EMA2Smoothing Period Usage MACD Slow Line(days for ema1, days for ema2, smoothing period)MACD Fast Line(days for ema1, days for ema2, smoothing period)MACD Histogram(days for ema1, days for ema2, smoothing period) Description Originally developed by Gerald Appel, the MACD is a momentum oscillator employing two exponential moving averages. To create the MACD, the difference of the two moving averages is plotted as the primary plot. A secondary plot is generated which is a moving average of the initial, or primary plot. The secondary plot is slow version of the primary plot and typically buy or sell signals are generated when a crossover between these two lines occur.A third bar chart is often displayed with the MACD which is the difference between the first two lines. This histogram provides insight into the magnitude of separation between the two lines. Examples Fetcher[MACD Fast Line(12,26,9) crossed above the MACD Slow Line(12,26,9)] Fetcher[MACD Fast Line(12,26,9) crossed below the MACD Slow Line(12,26,9) and the MACD Histogram(12,26,9) has been increasing for 2 days]

On Balance Volume(OBV)

 Parameters none Usage OBVAverage OBV(Period) Description On Balance Volume uses volume on up and down days as a momentum indicator for a stock. A cumulative momentum indicator, the On Balance Volume adds the daily volume on a day where the stock closes up and subtracts the daily volume on days when the stock closes down. Because the OBV is not normalized from one stock to another, typical interpretations analyze the slope to determine potential momentum changes. The Average OBV is an exponential moving average of the OBV line. Examples Fetcher[OBV has been increasing for 3 days and close is above 2.00 and average volume(30) is above 250000] Fetcher[OBV has been decreasing for 5 days lag 2 and OBV has been increasing for 2 days and close is above 2.00 and average volume(30) is above 250000] Fetcher[OBV(20) crossed above Average OBV(20)]

Relative Strength Index (RSI)

 Parameters Period Usage RSI(days)Smoothed RSI(days,smoothing period) Description Developed by J.Welles Wilder in 1978, the RSI is an oscillator which is used to track the momentum of the stock price. Unlike other relative strength measures, the RSI compares the price of the stock relative to the actual stock, not against other stocks or indices. The basic premise of the RSI is that an advancing stock will trend close the high of the day, while a declining stock will trend toward the low.Common intreprations of the RSI use values below 30 as "buy" signals and values above "70" as sell, or overbought signals.The smoothed RSI is a variation where a smoothing or slowing factor is applied to the RSI removing some of the "jaggedness" of the original signal. Examples Fetcher[find stocks where the RSI(15) is below 30] Fetcher[find stocks where the RSI(15) has been decreasing for 3 days lag 2 days and the RSI(15) has been increasing for the last 2 days and the RSI(15) is below 40]

Stochastics

 Parameters %K Period Usage Fast Stochastic(days for %K period) Fast %KFast Stochastic(days for %K period) Slow %DSlow Stochastic(days for %K period) Fast %KSlow Stochastic(days for %K period) Slow %D Description A popular oscillator for detecting oversold/overbought conditions, the fast and slow stochastics uses recent extreme highs and lows, over the specified last days, in relation to the most recent close to determine these conditions.The two components of either the Fast Stochastic or the Slow Stochastic are the %K and the %D. The %K, or fast signal examines the difference between the most recent close and the extreme low versus the difference between the extreme high and low over the specified period. The %D, or slow line, is a moving average of the %K line.The difference between the Fast Stochastic and the Slow Stochastic depends on a slowing factor. The slowing factor, usually 3, is applied to the %K to smooth, or slow the signal down.Common buy interpretations of the stochastics involve watching when one of the lines falls below 20 and then rises above that value. Another popular method involves buying when the faster %K line rises above the slower %D and then selling on the next crossover (%K falls back below the %D.) Examples Fetcher[Slow Stochastic(10) Fast %K is below 20] Fetcher[Fast Stochastic(10) Fast %K crossed above the Fast Stochastic(10) Slow %D] Fetcher[Fast Stochastic(10) Fast %K has been decreasing for 3 days lag 2 days and Fast Stochastic(10) Fast %K has been increasing for 2 days and the Fast Stochastic Fast %K is below 20]

Williams %R

 Parameters Period Usage Williams %R(days) Description The Williams %R, developed by Larry Williams, is an oversold/overbought oscillator which ranges between -100% and 0%. Computed by dividing the difference of the high over the last n periods and the most recent close by the difference of the extreme high and lows. Common interpretations of the Williams %R involve oversold signals generated below -80% and overbought signals generated above -20%. Examples Fetcher[Williams %R(14) below -80] Fetcher[Williams %R(14) decreasing for 3 days lag 2 days and Williams %R(14) increasing for 2 days and Williams %R(14) below -70]
