What are forex analysis tools?

  • OBV Line 

An On-Balance Volume Line measures the positive or negative flow of amount or volume of an asset against its price. The idea underlying this tool or indicator is that the volume of traded stocks of a pair precedes its price movement. Increased OBV generally means that both volume and price of a pair ha increased while decreased OBV means that price and volume are inversely proportional. This information helps in making future predictions with the help of stock history.

  • MACD Line 

The Moving Average Divergence-Convergence Line shows both the trend and momentum of an asset. It accounts for two different types of momentum, short-term and long-term, against time, i.e. two different Exponential Moving Averages (EMAs). Charting these two EMAs allow predicting the future direction of the asset, for example, low MACD means short selling.

  • ADX 

Average Directional Index points to the trend and strength or degree of movement of an asset. It points towards the degree of fluctuation of the stock, either way. Higher ADX is rare; low ADX refers to normal range-driven movements. ADX below 20 means a non-trending scenario and the same above 40 signals a higher fluctuation.


  • RSI 


Relative Strength Index is useful to traders to indicate overbought or oversold scenarios of an asset. It compares and measures a number of buys and sells against each other. Plotted from 0 to 100, the top indicator refers to overbought conditions and the other refers to oversold ones.


  • Stochastic Oscillator 


Another popular technical tool, this oscillator interprets the trends and momentums of an asset. The upward trend means that the price will close on the higher quotes of the trading range. Downward trends meant the opposite.
