Technical Opinion

The Technical Opinion panel takes up to 2 years worth of historical data for a symbol and runs these prices through thirteen different studies (technical indicators). After each calculation, Barchart Opinions assigns a buy, sell or hold value for each study, depending on where the price lies in reference to the study's common interpretation. Technical Opinion adds market-timing information by calculating and interpreting signal strength and direction.

For example, if the price is above the Moving Average, this is generally considered an upward trend or a buy.
