DeMARK Indicator® List

The DeMARK Indicator library consists of the following studies and components. These proprietary techniques are currently available only through Bloomberg, CQG, DeMARK Prime, and our newest web-based platform, Symbolik® by DeMARK®.

DeMARK Indicators 13


A 13 indication marks the culmination of the Countdown phase in the Sequential and Combo family of indicators. The 13 output runs a non-consecutive price bar comparison to identify areas of trend exhaustion. 13 Countdown results are often associated with more pronounced market reactions.

DeMARK Indicators 9

A 9 indication marks a completion of the Setup phase in the Sequential and Combo family of indicators. The 9 output looks for a series of consecutive price comparisons to define the underlying environment. Generally speaking, these 9 results are often followed by a price reversal, with the impact and duration defined by other elements of the indicator.


The Sequential® and Combo® family of indicators are famously known for their 9 Setup® and 13 Countdown® results. A completed indication is also referred to a 9-13 reading, representing a fulfillment of both phases.

DeMARK Indicators Absolute Retracement

Absolute Retracement®

Absolute Retracement can be used to anticipate potential levels of price support and price resistance in the market during an all-time high or low.

DeMARK Indicators Aggressive Combo

Aggressive Combo®

The Aggressive Combo indicator is used to accelerate the Countdown method. This substitution process is more lenient than its traditional Combo counterpart and identifies areas of likely price exhaustion during periods of increased volatility.

DeMARK Indicators Aggressive Sequential

Aggressive Sequential®

The Aggressive Sequential indicator is used to accelerate the Countdown method. This substitution process is more forgiving than its traditional Sequential counterpart and identifies areas of likely price exhaustion during periods of increased volatility.

DeMARK Indicators Alignment


The Alignment oscillator is a diffusion index of five DeMARK studies: Rate of Change, Range Expansion Index, Pressure, DeMarker 1, and DeMarker 2. Maximum readings demonstrate overbought and oversold synchronicity and are often associated with price exhaustion.

DeMARK Indicators Analog


The Analog indicator is a multi-asset chart component allowing current price activity to be superimposed on past price movement for the purpose of identifying similar activity and predicting future price direction.

DeMARK Indicators Anti-Differential


The Anti-Differential indicator identifies zones of price exhaustion and potential price reversals. It compares the buying and selling pressure of a series of consecutive bars to determine the likelihood of a future rally or decline.

DeMARK Indicators Arc


The Arc retracement indicator incorporates both price and time to establish support and resistance levels.

DeMARK Indicators Camouflage


The Camouflage indicator is used to uncover price activity not readily apparent through conventional price reporting procedures. Rather than simply comparing price to the prior bar's close, the Camouflage indicator includes the current bar's open and close to determine whether accumulation or distribution has occurred and to forecast future price action.

DeMARK Indicators Carrie


The Carrie study attempts to participate in short term breakouts by identifying critical price levels that previously served as important price resistance and support.

DeMARK Indicators Channel 1

Channel 1™

The Channel 1 indicator offers a non-conventional method for calculating channels. It multiplies a three-day moving average of the true highs by a percentage to derive the lower channel. The upper channel is derived from a three-day moving average of the true lows multiplied by a percentage.

DeMARK Indicators Channel 2

Channel 2™

The Channel 2 indicator is more conventional than Channel 1, multiplying a series of highs by a percentage to generate its upper channel, and a series of lows by a percentage to generate its lower channel.

DeMARK Indicators Channel 3

Channel 3™

The Channel 3 indicator identifies the market's tendency to trade within a price band. The extremes are displayed as an upper and lower band generated by short term moving averages for a series of bars.

DeMARK Indicators Clop


The Clop indicator compares the current bar's price action to a prior bar's closing and opening price to predict near term price activity. When used in conjunction with other DeMark Indicators, the Clop indicator can also initiate entries and exits.

DeMARK Indicators Clopwin


The Clopwin indicator compares the current bar's price action to a recent price bar where the opening and closing prices are contained within the prior bar's opening and closing range in order to predict near term price activity. When used in conjunction with other DeMARK Indicators, the Clopwin indicator can also be used to initiate entries and exits.

DeMARK Indicators Combo


Combo is designed to anticipate prospective trend exhaustion as it occurs and prior to its confirmation. Similar in construction to Sequential, the Combo indicator is designed to identify potential inflection points in trending markets and remain dormant during periods of price consolidation.

DeMARK Indicators Countdown


Once the market environment has been established by the Setup indicator, the Countdown indicator is implemented, where the close of the current bar is compared to the appropriate high or low two bars earlier. The resulting output quantifies the progression of the trend and identifies price levels where it is vulnerable to a reversal.

DeMARK Indicators D-Wave


The D-Wave indicator is an objective method for measuring the long-term price movement of a market. Price trends typically unfold in a series of waves, made up of incremental advances and declines. The D-Wave indicator identifies these price thrusts and anticipates when the trend is likely to exhaust itself.

DeMARK Indicators DeMarker 1

DeMarker 1™

The DeMarker 1 indicator is an oscillator designed to distinguish between trading ranges and trending markets, anticipate likely price trend reversals, and define and confirm the underlying direction or trend of the market.

DeMARK Indicators DeMarker 2

DeMarker 2™

The DeMarker 2 indicator is an oscillator designed to distinguish between trading range and trending markets by measuring buying pressure or selling pressure over consecutive price bars.

DeMARK Indicators Differential


The Differential (Diff) indicator is used to predict short-term price activity through the comparison of recent buying and selling pressure readings. The Diff indicator looks for two consecutive directional closes and calculates the distance between the closing price and the intrabar true high and true low to arrive at a measurement of short-term market pressure.

DeMARK Indicators Directional


The Directional indicator relates the current bar's close to its open in an effort to gauge short-term market direction.

DeMARK Indicators Disqualified Breakout

Disqualified Breakout®

The DeMARK Breakout Qualifiers are a series of objective rules that can be applied to multiple DeMARK Indicators to gauge whether a breakout above or below a level is expected to continue. A Disqualified Breakout indication does not meet the breakout criteria and suggests a lower likelihood that the move will persist in the short-term until a Qualified Breakout occurs.

DeMARK Indicators Double Point

Double Point™

The Double Point indicator is more trend following in nature than other DeMark Indicators®. The Double Point indicator looks for the continuation of a trend by identifying diverging TD Points, such as a TD Point high succeeded by a lower TD Point high or a TD Point low succeeded by a higher TD Point low.

DeMARK Indicators Escalator


The Escalator measures the intensity of a trend by identifying a series of notable price levels.

DeMARK Indicators Exit 1

Exit 1™

The Exit 1 indicator compares the closing prices of trending price bars to identify potential short term price reversals.

DeMARK Indicators Fibonacci Intraday

Fibonacci Intraday™

The Fibonacci Intraday indicator is a short-term study that utilizes Fibonacci-derived values to generate intrabar levels of exhaustion.

DeMARK Indicators Fibonacci Range

Fibonacci Range™

The Fibonacci Range indicator calculates upside and downside price exhaustion levels using Fibonacci derived values.

DeMARK Indicators Flip Flop


The Flip-Flop indicator identifies a possible change of trend by comparing the current bar's open and close to those of the prior two price bars.

DeMARK Indicators Gap


The Gap indicator identifies both Gaps and Laps while attempting to validate whether or not they will be filled prior to a reversal in trend.

DeMARK Indicators In Range

In Range™

The In Range indicator identifies a series of consecutive closes and compares each bar's close relative to the prior bar's high or low. An up or down arrow appears upon completion, suggesting the direction of a likely reversal.

DeMARK Indicators Intersection


The Intersection phase of the Sequential and Combo family of indicators comes into play upon the completion of the Setup phase and quantifies a deceleration of the trend in order to initiate the Countdown process.

DeMARK Indicators Line Gap

Line Gap™

The Line Gap indicator identifies support and resistance levels by locating price gaps, used in conjunction with the Points indicator.

DeMARK Indicators Lines


The Lines indicator eliminates the subjectivity of trend lines by introducing a mechanical approach to their construction as well as the calculation of price objectives. Applying DeMARK-based breakout rules helps to distinguish between qualified and disqualified breakouts.

DeMARK Indicators LV


The LV indicator compares levels from the last 7 and 11 price bars, to determine whether a reversal is likely to continue.

DeMARK Indicators Megaphone


The Megaphone indicator is a longer-term study designed to identify a series of expanding higher and lower closes. The Megaphone indicator often appears coincident with trend exhaustion.

DeMARK Indicators Meghan


The Meghan indicator is designed to compare the true high, the true low, and the close of prior price bars with the current bar to anticipate the following bar's potential.

DeMARK Indicators Migaphone


The Migaphone is designed to identify a series of lower highs and higher lows.

DeMARK Indicators Moving Average 1

Moving Average 1™

The Moving Average 1 indicator considers both price and time to define when a chart is trending and when the trend goes dormant.

DeMARK Indicators Moving Average 2

Moving Average 2™

The Moving Average 2 indicator applies two separate moving averages to a price chart and compares relative values to identify the trend's direction. The moving averages are displayed in blue when comparative values are ascending and red when comparative values are descending.

DeMARK Indicators Open


The Open indicator compares the current bar's open and subsequent price activity to a prior bar's reference point to establish near term direction.

DeMARK Indicators Overlap


The Overlap indicator attempts to predict breakouts by identifying price activity that intersects with an earlier price bar's high and/or low.

DeMARK Indicators Parallel Channel

Parallel Channel™

The Parallel Channel automatically connects a series of successively higher (lower) price levels.

DeMARK Indicators Pattern Match

Pattern Match™

The Pattern Match indicator looks at the relationship between the open, high, low, and close over a series of price bars and attempts to identify similar price patterns.

DeMARK Indicators Perfected


A Perfected designation occurs when the Setup indication has successfully fulfilled a multi-count bar comparison, marking the proper completion of the phase.

DeMARK Indicators Pivot


The Pivot indicator relates the current bar's price action to a prior high or low Point indication.

DeMARK Indicators Plurality


The Plurality indicator is an oscillator that combines price relationships in a way that highlights when a trend is likely exhausted. The Plurality indicator assigns a value to a series of simple and complex price comparisons, resulting in an oscillator reading that helps identify potential market inflection points.

DeMARK Indicators Point


The Point indicator ascribes a value to price bars based upon a comparison of surrounding highs and lows. The degree of these Point readings helps to identify changes in the supply-demand equilibrium.

DeMARK Indicators Point Reversal

Point Reversal™

The Point Reversal indicator confirms a short term Point high or low when closing above or below all specified bar's immediately preceding that Point.

DeMARK Indicators Pressure


The Pressure indicator is represented by a line or histogram displaying the cumulative index of buying and selling, the Rate of Change (ROC) of buying and selling over a specified time period, or the pressure ratio. The formula combines variations of price activity and/or volume, as well as relationships with the earlier price bars.

DeMARK Indicators Pressure 1

Pressure 1™

The Pressure 1 indicator measures the degree of accumulation (buying) and distribution (selling) by plotting the average up volume and average down volume as two lines.

DeMARK Indicators Price Flip

Price Flip®

A Price Flip indication arises when a Setup count occurs in the opposite direction, starting the Setup phase anew.

DeMARK Indicators Propulsion


Propulsion defines short-term momentum and determines potential price exhaustion levels (support/resistance) during those periods.

DeMARK Indicators Qualified Breakout

Qualified Breakout®

The DeMARK Breakout Qualifiers are a series of objective rules that can be applied to multiple DeMARK Indicators to gauge whether a breakout above or below a level is expected to continue. A Qualified Breakout indication confirms the breakout criteria have been fulfilled and suggests a higher likelihood that price will follow-through.

DeMARK Indicators Range Expansion Breakout

Range Expansion Breakout™

The Range Expansion Breakout (REBO) indicator provides a template to identify near term price movement that deviates from the expected price path, which typically forewarns the market of pending price breakouts.

DeMARK Indicators Expansion Index

Range Expansion Index®

The Range Expansion Index (REI) compares price movement of the current price bar to the activity two trading bars earlier to arrive at an arithmetically calculated oscillator reading that is sensitive to periods of ascending and descending prices while, at the same time, remaining silent during periods of sideways or aberrant price movement.

DeMARK Indicators Range Projection

Range Projection®

Range Projection suggests a future price bar's potential high and low prices based upon the price movement of the most recent price bar.

DeMARK Indicators Rate of Change

Rate of Change™

The Rate of Change (ROC) indicator compares current price activity to prior movement to identify overbought and oversold conditions where the market is susceptible to exhaustion.

DeMARK Indicators Rate of Change 2

Rate of Change 2™

The Rate of Change 2 (ROC 2) indicator considers both price and momentum. The reference price used varies based upon the relative position of the Rate of Change indicator, making the ROC 2 more sensitive to price reversals than its predecessor.

DeMARK Indicators Recycle


A Recycle event marks an unanticipated trend intensification in the Sequential and Combo family of indicators. In these instances, an “R” appears on the chart in place of a 13.

DeMARK Indicators Reference Close

Reference Close®

The Reference Close indicator is designed to anticipate the potential for trend continuation by comparing current price activity to the close of several bars earlier.

DeMARK Indicators Relative Retracement

Relative Retracement®

Relative Retracement identifies price support and resistance levels by comparing prices at recent inflection points with past price activity.

DeMARK Indicators Resonance


The Resonance indicator aggregates Sequential and Combo readings across various time frames into a single oscillator output. As more indicator readings align, the greater the likelihood of a response.

DeMARK Indicators Camouflage

Reverse Camouflage®

The Reverse Camouflage indicator uncovers price activity not readily apparent through traditional measures. The Reverse Camouflage indicator identifies short-term divergences that can be used to anticipate the following price bar's potential activity.

DeMARK Indicators Reverse Differential

Reverse Differential™

Reverse Differential is designed to indicate short-term price breakout possibilities by comparing the buying/selling pressures of recent price bars. The indicator calculates pressure by measuring the distance between closing prices and the bar highs/lows and then compares the values to recent pressure readings to suggest the likelihood for follow through.

DeMARK Indicators Risk Level

Risk Level®

The Risk Level calculation defines the zone within which an expected market reaction should occur. If the price exceeds this value following the completion of a Setup or Countdown phase, the probability of the expected market response is diminished.

DeMARK Indicators Rocke


The Rocke indicator is designed to identify low-risk entry levels, depending on whether upside or downside, by comparing a series of earlier price bar highs or lows and the current bar's open relative to the prior bar's close.

DeMARK Indicators Sequential


Through a multi-phase price comparative process consisting of the Setup and Countdown indicators, the Sequential indicator analyzes otherwise incongruent price data to provide insight into the strength or weakness of the market's trend and its likelihood of reversing.

DeMARK Indicators Setup


The Setup looks for a series of consecutive closes greater than or less four closing price bars to define an underlying uptrend or downtrend. In general, minor price reversals are associated with the completion of the Setup and major market turning points are identified by the completion of a Countdown.

DeMARK Indicators Setup Trend

Setup Trend (TDST)®

The Setup Trend is derived from use of the Setup indicator to confirm market trends and likely trend failures. The TDST indicator is used to establish reference levels from the lowest true low and the highest true high of recent underlying trends, providing market support and resistance to help evaluate the integrity of its price movement.

DeMARK Indicators Spring


The Spring indicator identifies situations where the market is coiling in a consolidative phase with the potential to "spring" from its trading range.

DeMARK Indicators Termination Count

Termination Count®

The Termination Count setting allows a user to adjust the final bar of the Countdown phase to take a more aggressive market position or accommodate aberrant price activity.

DeMARK Indicators Thrust


The Thrust calculates projection levels based upon prior price movements.

DeMARK Indicators TJ


The TJ indicator is designed to capture short term opportunities by comparing the current bar's open to a series of earlier highs and lows.

DeMARK Indicators Trap


The Trap indicator is designed to pinpoint short term breakout levels when price exceeds the confines of the prior price bar.

DeMARK Indicators Trend Factor

Trend Factor®

After market movement of at least 5.56%, the Trend Factor applies a series of pre-defined mathematical equations to generate support and resistance price levels.

DeMARK Indicators Twisted Segment

Twisted Segment®

The Twisted Segment indicator is designed to compare a series of price patterns and relationships that identify the subsequent price bar's potential response.

DeMARK Indicators Up Down

Up Down™

The Up Down indicator identifies the direction of a potential reversal by utilizing lap conditions and closing relationships with reference to the underlying trend. A down or up arrow appears upon completion.

DeMARK Indicators Variable Aggressive Combo
