Below are some Technical Overlays, Indicators, and their definitions:

## Technical Overlays:

**Bollinger Bands**** **A chart overlay that shows the upper and lower limits of 'normal' price movements based on the Standard Deviation of prices. This tool is helpful in knowing what's high and what's low.

**Chandelier Exit** An indicator that can be used to set trailing stop-losses for both long and short position

**Ichimoku Cloud** A comprehensive indicator that defines support and resistance, identifies trend direction, gauges momentum and provides trading signals

**Kaufman's Adaptive Moving Average (KAMA)** A unique moving average that accounts for volatility and automaticaly adjusts to price behavior

**Keltner Channels** A chart overlay that shows upper and lower limits for price movements based on the Average True Range of prices.

**Moving Averages** Chart overlays that show the 'average' value over time. This is helpful in knowing where the price is relative to its most common point. Click on the link to learn more about Moving Averages (SMAs) and Exponential Moving Averages (EMAs).

**Moving Average Envelopes** A chart overlay consisting of a channel formed from simple moving averages

**Parabolic SAR** A chart overlay that shows reversal points below prices in an uptrend and above prices in a downtrend

**Pivot Points** A chart overlay that shows reversal points below prices in an uptrend and above prices in a downtrend

**Price Channels** A chart overlay that shows a channel made from the highest high and lowest low for a given period of time. This is helpful in knowing where the price is relative to its highest high's and lowest low's.
