# TA-Lib

This is a Python wrapper for TA-LIB based on Cython instead of SWIG. From the homepage:

TA-Lib is widely used by trading software developers requiring to perform technical analysis of financial market data.

- Includes 150+ indicators such as ADX, MACD, RSI, Stochastic, Bollinger Bands, etc.
- Candlestick pattern recognition
- Open-source API for C/C++, Java, Perl, Python and 100% Managed .NET

The original Python bindings included with TA-Lib use SWIG which unfortunately are difficult to install and aren't as efficient as they could be. Therefore this project uses Cython and Numpy to efficiently and cleanly bind to TA-Lib -- producing results 2-4 times faster than the SWIG interface.

Origin Repo is from mrjbq7/ta-lib. In this fork repo just provide with prebuild binary wheel to avoid lot of install issues.

## Installation

You can install from PyPI:

```
$ pip install TA-Lib
```

Install from pre-build binary

```
pip install talib-binary
```

## Function API

Similar to TA-Lib, the Function API provides a lightweight wrapper of the exposed TA-Lib indicators.

Each function returns an output array and have default values for their
parameters, unless specified as keyword arguments. Typically, these functions
will have an initial "lookback" period (a required number of observations
before an output is generated) set to `NaN`

.

For convenience, the Function API supports both `numpy.ndarray`

and
`pandas.Series`

inputs.

All of the following examples use the Function API:

```
import numpy
import talib
close = numpy.random.random(100)
```

Calculate a simple moving average of the close prices:

`output = talib.SMA(close)`

Calculating bollinger bands, with triple exponential moving average:

```
from talib import MA_Type
upper, middle, lower = talib.BBANDS(close, matype=MA_Type.T3)
```

Calculating momentum of the close prices, with a time period of 5:

`output = talib.MOM(close, timeperiod=5)`

## Abstract API

If you're already familiar with using the function API, you should feel right at home using the Abstract API.

Every function takes a collection of named inputs, either a `dict`

of
`numpy.ndarray`

or `pandas.Series`

, or a `pandas.DataFrame`

. If a
`pandas.DataFrame`

is provided, the output is returned as a
`pandas.DataFrame`

with named output columns.

For example, inputs could be provided for the typical "OHLCV" data:

```
import numpy as np
# note that all ndarrays must be the same length!
inputs = {
'open': np.random.random(100),
'high': np.random.random(100),
'low': np.random.random(100),
'close': np.random.random(100),
'volume': np.random.random(100)
}
```

Functions can either be imported directly or instantiated by name:

```
from talib import abstract
# directly
SMA = abstract.SMA
# or by name
SMA = abstract.Function('sma')
```

From there, calling functions is basically the same as the function API:

```
from talib.abstract import *
# uses close prices (default)
output = SMA(inputs, timeperiod=25)
# uses open prices
output = SMA(inputs, timeperiod=25, price='open')
# uses close prices (default)
upper, middle, lower = BBANDS(inputs, 20, 2, 2)
# uses high, low, close (default)
slowk, slowd = STOCH(inputs, 5, 3, 0, 3, 0) # uses high, low, close by default
# uses high, low, open instead
slowk, slowd = STOCH(inputs, 5, 3, 0, 3, 0, prices=['high', 'low', 'open'])
```

## Supported Indicators and Functions

We can show all the TA functions supported by TA-Lib, either as a `list`

or
as a `dict`

sorted by group (e.g. "Overlap Studies", "Momentum Indicators",
etc):

```
import talib
# list of functions
print talib.get_functions()
# dict of functions by group
print talib.get_function_groups()
```
