I asked Program/library to generate many technical indicators given a series of stock prices. It received 3 downvotes, without any explanation. I am new to this website: what's with this question?


Question body:

I have a time series (vector) representing the evolution of a stock price over time. I am looking for a program/library that can generate a matrix containing as many technical indicators as possible. Which publicly available program/library can do that?

My bet is that it is because this question is closely related to seeking assistance in developing a trading strategy which is considered as off-topic as per the site's guidelines.

    $\begingroup$ Thanks. I don't understand why people mix up downvotes with close votes. $\endgroup$ – Franck Dernoncourt Aug 5 '17 at 15:41

    $\begingroup$ Also, where did you see that seeking assistance in developing a trading strategy is considered as off-topic? $\endgroup$ – Franck Dernoncourt Aug 5 '17 at 15:44
  • $\begingroup$ I've tried to find a link as well but did not manage to do so. However, if you take some random question on the site and click close, a menu will pop up with the different possible reasons, amongst which 'off-topic' and then several propositions along with this one. $\endgroup$ – Quantuple Aug 5 '17 at 15:47
  • $\begingroup$ I see. This close reason sounds extremely vague. $\endgroup$ – Franck Dernoncourt Aug 5 '17 at 15:48
  • $\begingroup$ It is. This is why some questions about developing a trading strategy sometimes stay open. I guess it all depends on the interpretation the community gives to the 'unlikely to help others' part. $\endgroup$ – Quantuple Aug 5 '17 at 15:51
  • $\begingroup$ That doesn't sound good. Before our comments get wiped out: When should we close a question as seeking assistance in developing a trading strategy? $\endgroup$ – Franck Dernoncourt Aug 5 '17 at 15:54
