Indicators & Trading Systems
Analyze the market with the insight of the most respected traders in history with MetaStock's comprehensive collection of indicators and line studies â€“ over 150 are included. MetaStock's built-in indicator interpretations even help you understand how to trade each indicator. For advanced users, The Indicator Builder lets you write your own indicators.
42 Adaptive Indicators
Standard indicators use a fixed look-back period, which makes them less responsive to prevailing market conditions. MetaStock 12 incorporates 42 Adaptive Indicators with dynamic look-back functionality based on volatility, cycle, or a combination of both. This method provides the most responsive and accurate results.
Write your own system
MetaStock knows that many of our clients have their own ideas about what makes a great system. The MetaStock formula language is easy to learn and allows you to create just about any system you can think of. Not into programming?

The best trading systems will fall short without a good exit strategy. MetaStock stop indicators help your system know when it's time to get out of the trade:
- Intellistops- these self-adjusting trailing stops do away with the old static stop systems, which are set at a fixed percentage from price. Intellistops are adaptive and adjust dynamically based on the current price activity of the security. Intellistops adjust according to cycles, volatility, and other conditions.
- Chandelier Stops- As the name indicates, Chandelier stops "hang" the sell stop from the extreme high reached over a predetermined period. When used properly, in tandem with other trading systems, Chandelier stops have been shown to produce profits even with randomly selected entries on a diversified group of futures.
This revolutionary trend-based system was developed by Rahul Mohindar. It incorporates a three-step indicator triggered by the Rahul Mohindar Oscillator and has become one of the most popular systems in MetaStock for its ease of use and reliability.

"Systematic trading has dramatically improved my returns and drawdowns. I'm easily beating the indexes and not taking an inordinate amount of risk. Prior to MetaStock, I tried one trading concept after another, and was essentially break-even â€“ not without many gut wrenching moments though. Trading is now objective and simple for me. I just follow the signals, and through extensive back-testing, I have confidence that my system will be highly profitable in the future."
