Zig Zag

In technical analysis, an indicator of the momentum of a security when its price trend changes. Because the indicator does not begin to function until the price trend changes, many technical analysts use it to confirm a trend rather than to predict one. In any case, the zig zag indicator helps technicians profit from trend changes.
