Through our partner Trading Central, Yahoo Finance Premium uses standard technical analysis practices to look for trends or patterns in stock prices over time. For example, we can generate a positive or bullish technical event when the price starts trading above its average price.

Technical event: price breaks above the moving average

We can also generate a bullish technical event when a chart pattern forms suggesting that price may break out to rise. You can find out why these are important by clicking on an event to bring up the information panel. Bullish technical events are plotted on the chart as green circles. Bearish technical events, which show signs of weakness, are represented by red squares.
