I have been looking for a good reference where I can find how technical indicators of stock market analysis are calculated. I have a dataset (time series) which I want to extract these indicators to apply into another program but I can't find a good reference of who they are calculated. For sample, I would like to see formulas for: Moving Averages, MACD, Exponential Moving Averages, Williams %R, Momentum, RSI,

Is there anybody that can indicate a good reference of how it is calculated?

Thank you.

The Technical Analysis of Financial markets is considered as a milestone of the matter.

I suggest to read that before starting to test your strategy.

It explains well the use of each indicator, providing the economic reason behind that and when it is useful to use that; moreover, the book deals the stock market with mainly, as you need for.

In my humble opinion, it is highly recommended if you want to start studying technical analysis and you are a beginner in that field.
