Introduction

Indicators are used as a measure to gain further insight into to the supply and demand of securities within technical analysis. Those indicators (such as volume) confirm price movement, and the probability that the move will continue. The Indicators can also be used as a basis for trading, as they can form buy-and-sell signals. In this slideshow, we'll take you through the second building block of technical analysis, and explore oscillators and indicators.
