A, B, D, I, J, L, M, P, R, S, T, V
A – AccuTrack Chart
AccuTrack is a trend-following indicator. When the red line’s price momentum changes relative to the green line’s price momentum, AccuTrack gives a signal.
AccuTrack works well when one, but not both, the red or green line is in a strong uptrend or a downtrend. AccuTrack, like all trend-following indicators, is useless when the market moves sideways trendlessly.
AccuTrack is especially unsuitable when both the red and green lines are in downtrends.
B – Bollinger Bands Chart
Bollinger Bands are upper and lower “envelope” lines plotted at standard deviation levels above and below a moving average. They predict the trading range of the red line.
D – Draw Down Chart
Displays max draw down and percent of time in drawdown vs total return
I – RSI Chart
RSI is a trading-range momentum indicator developed by Wells Wilder. RSI is also popularly known as Relative Strength Index.
RSI is a good sensor of tops and bottoms. It can give signals before price direction changes.
J – Adjusted Return Chart
Adjusted Return J chart is not an indicator. It shows the results of trading signals generated by the chart immediately above the J Chart.
M – MACD Chart
Moving-Average-Convergence-Divergence (MACD) is a trend-following indicator.
MACD is a momentum indicator. It works when prices bounce like a ball. As the ball rises, it gradually slows until it reaches its peak, and then it accelerates as it falls. MACD follows that motion. The switches occur as the ball becomes motionless at tops and bottoms. The indicator moves above/below the center as the issue reaches tops and bottoms.
L – Volume Chart
The Volume chart shows the daily volume of Stocks, ETFs, and COF of the ticker in the red color cell
P – Price Chart
Draws a long and short moving average of the red ticker. trade indicators are displayed when the long and short moving averages cross.
R – Relative Strength Chart
The Relative Strength Chart compares the performance of the red and green lines. The yellow line is the raw relative strength line of the red line calculated as the ratio between the percent return of the red line and the percent return of the green line.
When the yellow line upturns, the red line is outperforming the green line. Conversely, if the yellow line moves down, the fund is under performing.
If the yellow line is flat or horizontal, the red line and green line performance is the same. Relative strength works well when the red and green lines are not highly correlated.
Relative Strength does not generate is own signals as does AccuTrack, an alternate expression of relative strength.
S – Stochastic Chart
Stochastics is a technical indicator developed by George Lane. Its primary application has been in the timing of quick moves in the futures markets.
Stochastics, like all trading-range indicators, is useless when the market is trending.
T – Total Return Chart
The T Chart displays price change, total return, and dividends for up to 6 mutual fund, etf, stock, or index tickers.
V – Moving Average Histogram
The V Chart plots short and long moving average and generates trading signals based on their crossing. The V Chart incorporates an optional filter setting to mitigate excessive trading.
