Note: The period window could be 1 minute, 5 minutes, 60 minutes, 1 day 1 week, 1 month and so on. It depends on what kind of stock traders you're. For example, 1 minutes and 5 minutes period window will be useful for day traders. 1 day period windows may suitable for traders who do not have time to monitor the stock very closely. Weekly and monthly will be suitable for long term investor like me. :D
