Parabolic refers to a type of technical analysis indicator that is often used by traders to identify potential reversals in price trends. The Parabolic SAR (Stop and Reverse) is one of the most commonly used parabolic indicators. It is represented by a series of dots that appear either above or below the price chart, depending on the direction of the trend. The dots are designed to move closer to the price as the trend continues, and are meant to signal potential trend reversals when they cross over the price line. The Parabolic SAR can be used in conjunction with other technical analysis tools to help traders make more informed trading decisions.
