I am a bit surprised to find Bollinger Bands in the "Volatility" Category. The idea/math behind bolinger bands is based on a relationship between Trend (could we call it Drift?) and volatility, so it does not belong in neither Category.

I'd suggest to start a cetegory "Bands" or "Channels" for all these animals.

Furthermore I've seen quite some "Indicators" which serve more graphical purposes and are hardly useful in a programmed strategy. (Trendlines, Detrended Price Oscillator,...)

I'd suggest to create a category "Graphical" or "Charting" (in its worst sense) for them.

Should simplify searches...

Eventually we'd like to let you arrange the indicators on your own categories. Maybe before then we can add a simple search/filter.
