What do the ratings in the Screener mean?

When a certain condition is met for an indicator, it typically means it’s a good time to buy or sell. We made those signs clearly visible and below is a list of when they appear.

Here is what they mean:

Simple & Exponential Moving Averages

Buy — indicator values < price Sell — indicator values > price

Relative Strength Index

Buy  — indicator < lines that represent oversold conditions and indicator values are rising Sell — indicator > lines that represent overbought conditions and indicator values are falling


Buy — main line < lower band (20) and main line crosses the signal line from bottom-up
Sell — main line > upper band (80) and main line crosses the signal line from above-down

Commodity Channel Index

Buy — indicator < oversold level (-100) and reversed upwards
Sell — indicator > overbought level (100) and reversed downwards

Average Directional Index

We’ve also added columns with general ratings. For example, the Rating column will show you combined ratings for all of the indicators mentioned above. You can also add your own filters to this column.

There’s also a context menu now for the column headers. You can now:

  • remove the column;
  • reset or edit the filter;
  • show or hide the rating;
  • show or hide the description for the Ticker column.
