Add the Indicator
TrendSpider offers more than 150 indicators to choose from. You can navigate to the Indicator Manager and search across these indicators by scrolling down through the list or entering the name of the specific indicator in the search field.
After selecting the indicator, you can customize the preferences (discussed in the next section) and click on the APPLY button to add the indicator to the chart.
In the example below, you can observe the Simple Moving Average indicator is graphed in the dark blue color.
Please note that you will find many indicators in the list with the keyword-’docs’ assigned next to them. The docs is hyperlinked to the relevant help article explaining the meaning of the particular indicator and how it works.
Some indicators also have special symbols/labels assigned next to them. For example, a lab flask symbol against an indicator indicates that it is an experiment by TrendSpider. While some indicators have a label - new next to them, indicating a recent addition by TrendSpider.
