A library of stock market technical analysis functions.

TA-Lib is a library of functions for technical analysis of stock market data. It includes a large number of indicators, oscillators and averages, as well as candlestick pattern recognition. It aims to be a reliable implementation of the various algorithms, from the simple to the complex, providing a base for charting, backtesting and trading. The library is written in C and can be called natively from C++ and Java. Perl and python interfaces are provided using SWIG wrappers. (Some interfaces to non-free software are available too.)
