When it comes to investing in the stock market, knowledge is power. One valuable tool in an investor’s arsenal is Technical Peer comparison, which involves analyzing the performance of a target stock in relation to its industry peers. While fundamental analysis focuses on a company’s financial health, the technical analysis examines key technical levels, indicators, price patterns and market trends.
In the dynamic world of stock trading, staying ahead of the competition and making informed investment decisions are crucial. StockEdge, one of the leading stock market analysis platforms, has recently introduced a groundbreaking feature known as “Technical Peer Comparison.” This powerful tool allows investors and traders to evaluate stocks based on technical indicators, enabling them to make more accurate and timely investment choices. In this blog post, we will delve into the details of StockEdge’s Technical Peer Comparison and explore how it can enhance your stock analysis.
Understanding Technical Peer Comparison:
Technical Peer Comparison is a feature that facilitates a comprehensive analysis of stocks based on various technical indicators. It enables investors to compare the performance of a stock with its industry peers, benchmark indices, and customized watchlists. By evaluating key indicators such as moving averages, relative strength index (RSI), moving average convergence divergence (MACD), and others, investors can gain valuable insights into a stock’s relative strength, trend, and momentum.
Identifying Sector/Industry Peers:
To perform a meaningful peer comparison, it is crucial to identify a stock’s Sector/Industry peers. Companies operating in the same sector or subsector often face similar market conditions and macroeconomic influences.
Now let’s deep dive and understand StockEdge’s Technical Peer Comparison feature:
Click on the Sector icon on the home page and select your desired sector/industry wherein you want to analyse the same via key technical indicators and levels.
For example, we select the Automobile & Ancillaries sector and switch to the Technicals tab.
What we see is that the Technicals tab is further divided into two subtabs named Levels and Indicators.
In the Levels Tab, you will find a list of all stocks in this respective sector sorted in a market cap descending order, providing key levels on the selected technical level button, D being the first default level.
There are in total 13 key technical levels provided:
D – Day levels: Providing High and Low Levels of the latest trading day.
PD – Previous Day:
W – Weekly:
M – Monthly:
52W – 52 Week:

SMA – Simple Moving Average:
EMA – Exponential Moving Average:
PIVOT – Key Pivot Levels
BB – Bollinger Band:
PSAR – Parabolic SAR:
SUPR – SuperTrend:
ICHK – Ichimoku Levels
As can be seen, all the levels are provided in button bars and one can select the respective level button to analyse the data further. Clicking on any button bar with ‘D’ being default, all the stocks in that respective sector will be appearing in a list sorted on the basis of descending market cap along with an easy-to-interpret visual graphic representation of key levels.
In the Indicators tab, indicators are further grouped into 4 categories each with its sub-parts:
Relative Strength Index (RSI)
Commodity Channel Index (CCI)
Money Flow Index (MFI)
Rate of Change (ROC)
