Market Indicator Dictionary

Market Indicators (as opposed to “Technical” indicators) are index symbols that contain calculated values of various non-price-oriented information about a specified group of stocks. An example of a market indicator is the NYSE New 52-Week Highs index ($NYHGH) which contains daily totals of NYSE-traded stocks that have set a new 52-week high as of the specified date.

(A “Technical” indicator is a line on a chart that is calculated from the price and volume information on the chart. An example is a moving average line or the MACD indicator. Technical indicators are associated with a specific ticker symbol while Market indicators are associated with groups of symbols.)

Below is a listing of all the Market Indicators that we currently track here at StockCharts.com along with their definition, update frequency, and ticker symbol.
