How to identify the usefulness of indicators?
 
Technical indicators are mathematical calculations derived from price action. They provide factual information such as what has happened in the past. Technical indicators will never guarantee what happens in the future. However subjective analysis can be applied to technical indicators. There is no guaranteed way of telling whether an indicator is useful for you or not. Users are encouraged to explore the indicators and study their suitability and educational value in them.

Having said that, there are few measures that can define the popularity of indicators on tradingview and the credibility of the author who published it.

Author Details

Below are a few pieces of information visible on the author's page which can define the skills and credibility of author in providing popular indicators

  • Reputation - Reputation is earned by participating in community activities such as publishing open-source indicators, ideas, videos and other content. The number of boosts and comments received on published work will also positively influence the reputation of the author.
  • Ideas and Scripts - These are the number of publications done by the user.
  • Followers - Number of people following the author
  • Boosts - Number of boosts received by the author for all the published work
  • Badge - Badges will signify if the user is subscribed to the tradingview paid plan - pro, pro+ or premium. A special Wizard badge is given to a select few people who have done considerable contributions towards the Pinecoders community via various activities.

Script Details

Below are some of the factors to consider for understanding the popularity of scripts

  • Detailed description - Check if the description is clear and explained thoroughly the features, input and outputs of the indicator.
  • Number Boosts - This is the number of people who liked the script. Can also tell about the popularity of the subject on which the indicator is built. For example, scripts made on pattern recognition will usually get a higher number of boosts than something made on a moving average or less popular subject.
  • Number of comments - This shows the social engagement activity on the script.
  • Editor Pick - Editor picks are given by Tradingview to select a few scripts to highlight the usefulness or creativity to the users. The scripts which do not have editor pick do not mean they are not useful. But, the ones having the editor pick awards are those which went through a panel of reviewers and were approved. Hence they carry some value towards the users. Only open-source scripts feature in editor picks. Protected and invite-only scripts are not considered for the award.
