Coinbase has partnered with TradingView to bring you 104 market indicators. These indicators track market trends and patterns to help inform your trading decisions. You can select multiple indicators to give you a better perspective of an asset’s buy and sell price.
Here are some of the most commonly used indicators:
RSI (relative strength index) shows a trend’s duration and helps you spot when it will reverse.
EMA (exponential moving average) captures how quickly a trend is moving and its strength. EMA measures the average price points of an asset.
SMA (smooth moving average) is like an EMA but measures the average price points of an asset over a longer period of time.
MACD (moving average convergence/divergence) measures the relationship between the highest and lowest average price points. When a trend is forming, the graph will converge or meet at a specific value.
