I really only want to trade with one of each type with maybe a couple exceptions, and I thought it would be handy to have this default list for whenever I want to confirm something to make sure I’m not using an indicator too similar.

For example moving averages are lagging trend indicators. The different categories that I understand experts agree on are trend, momentum, volatility, and volume. I’m having trouble figuring out how to classify some of the indicators as well as figure out some other common ones that might be missing on the list .. Below is what I have so far, some indicators are listed as both leading and lagging because I understand that this is the case for them:

Trend, leading: MacD, parabolic Sar, Schaff trend, market forecast

Trend, lagging: moving averages, MacD, market forecast

Trend, unattributed: ADX

Momentum, leading: stochastic, CCI, RSI, market forecast, stochRSI, rate of change, PMO

Momentum, lagging: market forecast

Momentum, unattributed: Chande Momo oscillator, Williams %R

Volatility, leading:

Volatility, Lagging: Bollinger bands, average true range, standard deviation

Volatility, unattributed: envelopes, volatility channels, volatility chaikin, projection oscillator

Volume, leading: chaikin oscillator, on balance volume

Volume, lagging: volume rate of change

Volume unattributed: money flow index, ease of movement, chaikin money flow, demand index, force index

So far I got most of my information from visual capitalist (finance visualization site), and I guessed at market forecast. Some other ones I don’t even know how to classify that I believe are leading indicators are donchian channels (prob volatility right?), fibonacci retracement, support/resistance levels, MarketSentiment, and put call ratio. I realize most of those aren’t strictly indicators per se, but for the sake of thoroughness I thought they should be included.

If anyone has ideas on the classification of some of these that would be great i’m surprised that the Internet didn’t yield more results for this kind of information.
