I've also learned alot by watching Ira Epstein's Youtube channel. You can sign up for his course, but it's not needed. He puts out daily videos and goes over some good macroeconomic info as well as chart analysis.

"The two most popular types of moving averages are the simple moving average (SMA) and the exponential moving average (EMA). Simple moving averages (SMAs) are an average of prices over the specified timeframe, while exponential moving averages (EMAs) give more weight to recent prices."
"SAR (Parabolic SAR) is an indicator that sets trailing price stops for long or short positions. Also referred to as the “stop-and-reversal indicator,” Parabolic SAR is more popular for setting stops than for establishing direction or trend. If the trend is up, buy when the indicator moves below the price. If the trend is down, sell when the indicator moves above the price."
