Ruby bindings for the Tulip indicators technical analysis indicator library (https://tulipindicators.org/). This can be used to build tools for financial markets trading and analytics in Ruby.


Install the gem and add to the application's Gemfile by executing:

$ bundle add tulirb

If bundler is not being used to manage dependencies, install the gem by executing:

$ gem install tulirb


This library consists of a single module: Tulirb. All indicator functions are singleton methods of this module. All methods have the same interface, they take a 2d array of inputs as the first argument and relevant options as kwargs. The output is a 2d array of the result(s).



    # Exponential Moving Average
    Tulirb.ema([[1.2, 1.5, 1, 1.8]], period: 5) # => [[1.2, 1.35, 1.175, 1.4875]]

    # Stochastic Oscillator
            [30, 35, 40, 25, 20, 23, 56, 24, 87],
            [18, 22, 20, 24, 25, 63, 23, 100, 65],
            [45, 60, 35, 50, 30, 43, 23, 109, 87],
