Indicators

SlopeCharts has a variety of technical indicators you can apply to charts. To invoke them, click on this button:

0624-studies

There is a dialog box with tabs that allows you to customize and apply any technical indicators to any chart you display. The first tab is for Moving Averages. You can apply up to three of them in any color, and they can be set to either Simple or Exponential style.

The next tab is for the Parabolic Stop And Reversal (PSAR). Click the “Show” checkbox to display it, and although most people are fine with the defaults, you can alter these if you wish. As with any other element in SlopeCharts, you can choose a different color if you like.

Here is an example of how PSAR is displayed:

The third tab, Bollinger Bands, likewise allows you to choose between Simple and Exponential. You can alter the number of days used in the calculation and, as always, the color.

And here is an example of what Bollinger Bands would look like:

Over time, more indicators will be added to SlopeCharts, but the means of entering them by way of this dialog box will remain the same. You can mix and match indicators to your liking, and they will be applied to any and all charts you observe until such time as you “clear” the indicators via this same dialog box.
