All TA indicators are function of only two variables. Price and volume. Which indicator is price based and which one is volume based? The quiz is,... is that then correct to use two priced based indicators to confirm a buy signal?(this is a biased approach. It is biased because both indicators use the same variable i.e. price) Should not we, be confirming a priced based indicator by a volume based indicator?

Can we then list the following:

Price only indicators
Volume only indicators
Price and Volume indicators

How important are Price and Vol indicators?

Thanks Trader and Cigar,

It is quite normal to have two priced based indicator such as MACD and RSI as a base for your analysis but you MUST have at least ONE volume based indicator to confirm the findings from the Price based Indicators. Both price and volume indicators should agree before a credible signal is issued.
I have seen some analysts who recommend stocks only on one set of indicators.

Correct. I always look at the volume. I also use the on-balance volume indicator. I have access to money flow from Byriani, but never found it could add value to my analysis.

I have not found it necessary to have both price- and volume-based indicators; nonetheless, the underlying point I believe you're making is valid: indicators should offer different perspectives. For example using only price-based indicators might be okay if some show price movement and others monitor divergences. Or, maybe a stock-level indicator can be confirmed by a sector- or index-level indicator. Regardless of indicators being used, it makes sense to not have them all looking at the same side of one coin.
