Market Indicator Dictionary

Market Indicators (as opposed to “Technical” indicators) are index symbols that contain calculated values measuring the health of a specified group of stocks. An example of a market indicator is the NYSE New 52-Week Highs index ($NYHGH) which contains daily totals of NYSE-traded stocks that have set a new 52-week high as of the specified date.

If you are new to market indicators, please see our Introduction to Market Indicators article in ChartSchool for more information.

Below is a listing of some of the more common market breadth indicators for the US and Canadian markets that we currently track here at StockCharts.com, along with their definition, update frequency, and ticker symbol.
