Formulas

Technical analysts use mathematical formulas to evaluate price performance of stocks and other securities. These mathematical formulas evaluate price history to help determine whether the timing is right for purchase or sale. StrataSearch comes with all the formulas below, and uses them to create trading strategies that generate buy and sell signals.

In addition to this list, StrataSearch lets you build your own formulas using a simple scripting language. Your custom formulas can be included in an automated search, and will operate at the same incredible speed as those below:
