This category discusses a specific class of technical indicator known as an Anchored Indicator. These are all versions of other indicators that are cumulative in nature, meaning their data does not reset and continues to accumulate, in contrast to rolling indicators where data does reset and roll over time to include new information and remove old information. Anchored indicators allow the accumulation of information to start at a point in time that the trader determines, allowing them to measure what happened after that point in time more precisely without the noise of past history. The most famous anchored indicator is the Anchored VWAP, popularized by Brian Shannon of Alphatrends.
