Posted by : isbr blogger We have previously written about the different types of technical indicators, Lagging, Leading and Confirming but we are still running into traders who have not quite got the hang of it. So we decided to create this video to help those traders understanding the difference indicators and as a result put together the right indicators instead of for example 2 of the same kind. Lagging indicators are best used as filters and trend determination. Moving Average is the most popular one and is only the one we use the most. The whole point of adding filters is to prevent you from trading noise and what better tool to use than a lagging indicator. Something that smooth price action out. Leading indicators is used for entries. Examples of these are Stochastic and MACD. Many traders still make the mistake of adding several leading indicators thinking it will give them some sort of edge but we believe that all it does is confusing the trader. Confirming indicators are used to increase the odds of success by for example using volume to confirm entry signals. For more stock market education please feel free to visit our website
