1. Definition of Technical Indicators
Technical indicators are calculated based on historical data of the stock market through certain statistical algorithms.
Aided by technical indicators, we can judge whether the market is following a trend or in a state of consolidation.
In addition, indicators can also provide specific market signals, such as trend reversal signals and overbought/oversold signals.
2. Types of Commonly Used Indicators
Currently, moomoo supports 62 system indicators in 10 categories. Commonly used indicator types include trend indicators (MA, MACD, EMA), overbought/oversold indicators (KDJ, RSI, BIAS), and pressure/support indicators (BOLL), etc. In addition, there are special indicators such as the Ichimoku Cloud, which can help you better judge stock trends.
