How to Use Indicators and Oscillators

Indicators and oscillators are mathematical constructions based on price and volume that predict price movements.

Indicators and oscillators are additional technical tools that you can use to predict future price movements. Some indicators predict where the overall market is headed, while others prognosticate the direction of individual stocks or other investments. In general, technical analysts don’t trust signals from a single indicator; they prefer to obtain confirmation from several.

This hack reviews some of the more popular indicators and oscillators used in technical analysis.
