Highstock Indicators

Fri Aug 05, 2022 1:23 pm

Hello Highcharts Team,

Can you please provide an explanation what each technical indicator is doing and what the configuration parameters mean?

Eg. using trendline plugin (and many others have a paramter "index", which is unclear what it is doing for users.)

Thx in advance, your help is very appreciated!

Hi there,

Welcome to our forum and thank you for contacting us with this question!

If you would like to get an explanation for what each indicator is doing, I would suggest using sites like Investopedia or BabyPips - or just simply googling them!

You can read more about parameters for every indicator in our API here:
https://api.highcharts.com/highstock/series
Combine that with googling the indicator description and you are good to go!

Index is a default parameter on every series, point, etc. It simply works like an index in an array. Let's say you have 3 RSI indicators on your chart with the same parameters, the index allows you to differentiate them.

If you will need some help with setting up any of the available indicators, feel free to contact me here and I'll be more than happy to help you.

Best regards!
