Indicators listed below are the names of the standard built-in indicators accessible from the Indicator section dialog shown in the Creating Indicators topic section.  

 

An addition list of built-in indicator calculations are listed here: Indicator Pack 1 Indicators

 

Creating an indicator:

Examine the fields in the dialog that are colored with a white background.

Enter, or change the value shown where necessary.

Decide if the indicator will be appear as a indicator on the price chart.

 

Indicator Names:

Descriptions:

Accumulation/Distribution

Volume-based momentum indicator

ADX - Average Directional Index

J. Welles Wilder's trend strength indicator

Average True Range

EMA of the True Range. Computes a simple moving average to start, then an exponential moving average.

Average True Range Simple

SMA of the True Range

Bar History Value

Historical Value of the indicator

Bar Plot Color

This is a special type of indicator that is only used by the SetSeriesColorStyle function to dynamically set the color of the bars on the trade chart.  This indicator has no values and does not plot itself.  Turn Plotting ON and Display OFF.

Bar Value

Value assigned to the indicator like "High + Low / 2"

Bollinger Lower

Lower channel of the Bollinger band

Bollinger Upper

Upper channel of the Bollinger band. Uses a standard deviation based channel width from an ema. Both the StdDev and EMA are computed in the alternate fashion, with the bar 1 values as the prime value.

Calculated

See Calculated Indicators for more information

DI- - Negative Directional Indicator

J. Welles Wilder's Negative Directional Indicator

DI+ - Positive Directional Indicator

J. Welles Wilder's Positive Directional Indicator

EMA Alternate

Exponential Moving Average of the Value that primes with the Value itself on bar 1 and uses the EMA smoothing constant only.

Exponential Moving Average

Exponential Moving Average of the Value that primes with a simple moving average of the Value, and then uses the EMA smoothing constant thereafter.

Highest Value

Highest Value for N bars

Keltner Lower

Lower channel of the Keltner Band.

Keltner Upper

Upper channel of the Keltner Band. Uses an atr based channel width from an EMA. Both the ATR and EMA are computed in the alternate fashion, with the bar 1 values as the prime value.

Lowest Value

Lowest Value for N bars

MACD - MA Convergence Divergence

MACD for the value. The short moving average minus the long moving average. Uses the simple moving average to prime the short and long exponential moving averages.

MACD Alternate

Alternate version of the MACD, using the bar 1 value as the prime value rather than using a simple moving average.

Midpoint

Price that is the value between the current price, and the price at the offset price bar.

Range

Returns the range value of the highest-high to lowest-low from bar prices within the range.

Parabolic SAR

J. Welles Wilder's entry and exit indicator

RSI - Relative Strength Index

J. Welles Wilder's movement momentum indicator

Simple Moving Average

Simple Moving Average of the Value

Standard Deviation

Standard Deviation of the value of n-Bars

Standard Deviation Log

Standard Deviation of the log of the ratio bar change over n-Bars

Stochastic Oscillator

%K Stochastic Value for n-Bars

Stochastic Oscillator Full

Smoothed Stochastic

Stochastic Oscillator Slow

%D Stochastic Value for n-Bars

Unknown

This appears at the top of the built-in indicator list, and it is a marker for when an optional add-on indicator is missing it will be obvious that indicator type is now no longer available.
