They are three main categories of technical indicators , all the three categories all have their specifications and different characteristics which makes them useful for specific predictions. They three categories

Categories of Indicator

  • Volatility Based Indicators
  • Momentum-Based Indicators
  • Trend Based Indicators

Volatility Based Indicators.

As the name implies Volatility Based Indicators are used in a volatile market to know if the Volatility of an assert is high or low. They are indicators used to calculate the probabilities of of fluctuations, swings and unstable market trends and prices of assets in the exchange market. This fluctuations are mostly called either upswings and downswings are analysed by traders using " Volatility Based Indicators" to buy their desired asserts at a swing low and sell their desired asserts at a swing high. This will maximize profits from their business transactions.
For example

b) Briefly explain the reason why indicators are not advisable to be used as a standalone tool for technical analysis.

Indicator are software packages that can't be perfect or 100 accurate so you will need other tools to improve it probability of been accurate. As we have seen earlier they are different Indicators for different trader's and and different Indicators for different trading condition. Indicator we developed to confirm a chart, although too many indicator could also be bad because it could cause confusion and complexity to the the trader, which could result to unwanted and unexpected loss of money or asserts.

YpihifdXP4WNbGMdjw7e3DuhJWBvCw4SfuLZsrnJYHEpsqZFkiGGNCQHtEX2L5ZiTiNvJnrYf5ptbbz7XQpt33kWQRSNgVxZsAKiRxdRZ1poKFEjeRkbBSbVQVqJZonbjg3fKAQRPTgxxyQUNvFkUQTMQnQVvWYKpsPJZd7JfghT.gif

c) Explain how an investor can increase the success rate of a technical indicator signal.

For a trader to increase the success rate of his trades with technical indicator signals, the trader should have gained full knowledge about the chart, have full knowledge of the assert, have full knowledge of the indicator and have full knowledge about the major candlesticks. if the trader have the suppose knowledged of the above, the trader is expected to pick any three or two indicators he or she is convenient with to analysis about the entry and exit point and confirm reliability of the trade.

Conclusion

Technical indicator are wonderful analysing tool used to analyse , predict and confirm the trend and price of asserts at a a particular time . I have also learnt that i should not use just one indicator when i am analysing a price and trend of an indicator. I have also learnt how to configure and use an indicator.

Total8.4/10



Observation

Indicator we developed to confirm a chart, although too many indicators could also be bad because it could cause confusion and complexity to the trader

This is correct. Too many indicators on a chart can be confusing, two or three at most is enough to give and confirm signals.

Recommendation/Feedback:

  • The student has tried to answer the question and in his/her own words
  • The presentation is good, but you need to improve on your markdowns and overall writing skills.

A good performance. Some points were missing and needed better explanations.
