Technical indicators and chart patterns are a vital part of trading. Most traders use them every day. We use them to identify:
- Good trading opportunities
- When volatility is at historically high or low levels
- Whether volume is supporting or undermining the recent price moves
- If the price just broken out from a range
- Whether the dominant market trend is upwards, downwards or sideways
- If market conditions are conducive for the start of a strong new trend
21 More Technical Indicators
This eBook is a follow up to my previous book – How to Calculate 21 Technical Indicators Using Excel. In this book I investigate 21 new indicators and chart patterns.

The eBook comes with a free Excel spreadsheet containing all the indicators. Once you have the book, you can get the spreadsheet and start work straight away.
Why Calculate Technical Indicators?
Trading is a tough business, it is hard to make money year after year. The markets are always moving and changing. Traders need to be able to adapt and change when necessary.
The best data available to a trader is how the markets behaved in the past. We can use this historic data to observe and analyse how indicators and strategies performed in the past.
Excel is a great tool for handling data. Once our indicators and trading patterns are programmed into Excel we can get quantifiable data. We can find out what works well and what doesn’t.
Using Excel, we can check for seasonal and time of day patterns. We can assess whether our theories about the markets are accurate or not. Excel can also be used to backtest your strategies under different conditions and over different time periods.
