Data visualisation is an important part of any application and in v15.2 we have extended our chart controls to provide 16 new financial indicators that are widely used by analysts around the world.

The DevExpress Stock Demo illustrates the type of complex trading system achievable by the WinForms and WPF libraries.

One of the key new features is the ability to plot several indicators in separate panes with individual axes assigned to themselves.

Lets take a look at some of the newly supported financial indicators:

Price Indicators are approximations of the average price for a period and can be used as a filter for moving average systems. In v15.2 the following price indicators are now supported:

  • Median Price
  • Typical Price
  • Weighted Close

Price Indicators

Oscillators in technical analysis are an indicator that varies over time within a value range specified by a centre line or min/max lines. Oscillators are used to discover short-term over bought or over sold conditions.  v15.2 now supports the following list of oscillators.

  • Average True Range
  • Commodity Channel Index
  • Detrended Price Oscillator
  • Moving Average Convergence Divergence
  • Rate Of Change (Momentum)
  • Relative Strength Index
  • Chaikin’s Volatility
  • Triple Exponential Moving Average (TriX)
  • Williams %R


Trend Indicators attempt to provide an objective measure of the direction of a trend. Price data is smoothed and the trend is represented by a single line, like a moving average.

  • Mass Index
  • Standard Deviation
  • Stochastic Indicator


Moving Averages provide an objective measure of trend direction by smoothing price data.

  • Triple Exponential Moving Average (TEMA)
