MacdIndicator is a trend following indicator which displays the relationship between two moving averages of data.

To set up the indicator you can set its CategoryBinding, ValueBinding and ItemsSource properties. Additionally, you can control the period (in days) over the which the indicator will be applied. To do this set the ShortPeriod, LongPeriod and SignalPeriod properties.

To display the signal period you will need to set the SignalStroke property.

Example 1: Defining MacdhIndicator

    <telerik:MacdIndicator ShortPeriod="9"  
                           ItemsSource="{Binding Data}"/> 

Figure 1: MacdIndicator

Figure 1 shows 2 instances of RadCartesianChart. The top one shows only the candlestick series that displays the original data. The chart on the bottom shows the indicator.

The indicator can be set up the same way as a normal chart series. This is why you can populate it using the same approach as shown in the Data Bind to Data-Object article. You can set the corresponding value binding properties - for example, ValueBinding, CategoryBinding, HighBinding, CloseBinding, etc, and also the ItemsSource.
