This article is designed to introduce the concept of technical indicators and explain
how to use them in your analysis. We will shed light on the difference between leading
and lagging indicators, as well as look into the benefits and drawbacks. Many, if
not most, popular indicators are shown as oscillators.
With this in mind, we will also show how to read oscillators and explain how signals
are derived. Later we will turn our focus to specific technical indicators and provide
examples of signals in action.
