Technical Indicators

  Technical Indicators - Overview

The markets generate 2 types of basic data: Price of the security and the Volume (of transactions or units traded). And there is a 3rd data point: Time.

Technical Indicators use one or more of this raw data as inputs to various techniques to give insight into the Market behaviour - a sort of inside, x-ray picture of what the Market is doing and is likely to do. These techniques are what constitute the field of Technical Indicators (TIs) - a field of study within Technical Analysis.

Technical Indicators is an extremely valuable complement to basic Technical Analysis (of any type: Dow Theory, Candlesticks, Point & Figure, Elliot Wave, etc) and enables the Investor - Trader to make more informed and higher probability decisions on his market positions.

Often, Technical Indicators will provide answers at times when the basic Technical Analysis does not signal a clear cut direction of what the market is likely to do next.

BIC's Indicators course focuses on the important, time tested and widely used Technical Indicators. It provides the participants a sold foundation on which they can dwell deep into various related Technical Indicators (there are hundreds) on their own.

The course is hands on & practical with Live analysis and demonstrations using Technical Indicators and how they can be used effectively for different types of trading and investing.

The Technical Indicators course is presented over 10+ weekends. 2 sessions per weekend of 3 hours each or as a 5 day, full time back-to-back course.

In each session, a set of "related" indicators are discussed and practical uses of the same are demonstrated.
