Most indicators can be controlled by several common parameters.

There are two types of parameters:

  • Calculations of the indicator: e.g. the amount of periods used for the moving average (you do not need to worry too much about this in the beginning)
  • Visuals of an indicator: e.g. how it will look, the colour and thickness of the lines, etc.
