Buy/sell signals or indicators
Technical indicators which traders use to suggest times at which contracts might be taken on or liquidated. Examples: 1) Trend lines - A possible signal to either liquidate a long position or short a contract is triggered when up trending prices cross and go below an up trend line-example. Conversely, a possible signal to either liquidate a short position or assume a long position is triggered when down trending prices cross and go above a downtrend line. 2) Moving Average - A possible buy or sell signal is triggered when prices cross a moving average. 3) Multiple Moving Averages - In this case, two moving averages are used. One with a shorter averaging period than the other. The possible buy and sell signals are triggered when the shorter average crosses the longer-crossing in the upward direction triggers a possible buy while crossing in the downward direction signals a possible sell.
