Technical Indicators

Multiple Top Pattern

Both the double top and triple top are toppings patterns, so when the pattern “completes” consider exiting long positions and focus on taking short positions. The uptrend is now over and a downtrend is likely underway

Multiple Bottom Pattern

A double bottom pattern describes the drop of a stock or index, a rebound, another drop to the same or similar level as the original drop, and finally another rebound. The double bottom looks like the letter “W”. The twice-touched low is considered a support level.

Head and Shoulders Pattern

The head and shoulders pattern is believed to be one of the most reliable trend reversal patterns. It is one of several top patterns that signal, with varying degrees of accuracy, that an upward trend is nearing its end.

Inverse Head and Shoulders

An inverse head and shoulders pattern, upon completion, signals a bull market. Investors typically enter into a long position when the price rises above the resistance of the neckline

Wedge Resistance and Support

Wedge patterns are usually characterized by converging trend lines over 10 to 50 trading periods. The patterns may be considered rising or falling wedges depending on their direction. These patterns have an unusually good track record for forecasting price reversals.

Ticker Detail > More Screen

We couldn’t figure out how to add all this functionality on Ticker Detail, so it moved into a snazzy “More” section. Let us explain….

Most of these features are intuitive. Edit, Delete..

Peers has some extra crowd sourcing data! We all are curious to know what else is out there..

Dividend Reinvestment is another item that needs some explanation.

We have a back end process that runs every night and performs the following:

             ➢Scan all of your dividend stocks with a payment date after now and an ex-div date after the date you inputted into DivTracker.

             ➢Calculate DRIP Amount: (payment amount x shares) + (prior DRIP shares x payment amount)

             ➢Calculate DRIP Shares: (payment amount x shares) + (prior DRIP shares x payment amount) / share price

             ➢Create a ‘pending’ DRIP row to view at Ticker Detail > More > Div Reinvestment

             ➢Flip ‘pending’ to ‘paid’ once payment date is in the past

The DRIPs can be viewed under the “More” > Div Reinvestment screen. If you do not see one, or you see one incorrectly, you can edit and manipulate this information.

Ticker Detail Screen
