Indicators

This page is a work in progress. Please bear with us while we're working on this content.

Stock chart comes with a selection of automatic indicators that can be added to the chart via toolbar or API.

Adding via toolbar

To enable adding of indicators via UI, we need to add indicator control to our stock toolbar:

let toolbar = am5stock.StockToolbar.new(root, {
  container: document.getElementById("chartcontrols"),
  stockChart: stockChart,
  controls: [
    am5stock.IndicatorControl.new(root, {
      stockChart: stockChart
    })
  ]
});
var toolbar = am5stock.StockToolbar.new(root, {
  container: document.getElementById("chartcontrols"),
  stockChart: stockChart,
  controls: [
    am5stock.IndicatorControl.new(root, {
      stockChart: stockChart
    })
  ]
});

Adding via API

Creating indicator

Indicators can be added by instantiating an appropriate class, then pushing it into chart's indicators list.

Each indicator will need its stockChart (target stock chart) and stockSeries (value series) set, at the very least.

Some indicators, such as Volume, will need volumeSeries set as well, as they rely on both value and volume data.

stockChart.indicators.push(am5stock.BollingerBands.new(root, {
  stockChart: stockChart,
  stockSeries: valueSeries,
  legend: valueLegend,
  type: "simple"
}));
stockChart.indicators.push(am5stock.BollingerBands.new(root, {
  stockChart: stockChart,
  stockSeries: valueSeries,
  legend: valueLegend,
  type: "simple"
}));
