Good morning,

Can Indicators be used standalone?

I mean... if I need the values, but I am not interested in the charts?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi Luca, 
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion Support. 
We have achieved your requirement (calculated plot values of the technical indicator) by using CustomTechnicalIndicator. We have prepared a demo sample based on this requirement and it can be downloaded from below link, 
If this does not meet your requirement, kindly provide more information regarding your requirement. It would be more helpful for us to serve you better.

I cannot try it at the moment because I am at work, but I need it because I want to use your indicators as part of a trading strategy, and therefore I need the values to take decisions but without plotting them anywhere.

I hope I've been clear.

Thank you very much for your fast response,

Hi Luca, 
Thanks for your update. 
As we mentioned in earlier update, we have achieved this requirement in workaround by using CustomTechnicalIndicator for getting the calculated indicator plot values as well as indicator Y-values as like in below code snippet 
private void chart_Loaded(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e) 
    var points = indicator.Points;// TechnicalIndicator screen points 
    XValues = new List<DateTime>(); 
    YValues = new List<double>(); 
    for (int i = 0; i < points.Count; i++) 
      //TechnicalIndicator screen points are converted to corresponding  
           values by using PointToValue() 
        XValues.Add((this.chart.PointToValue(chart.PrimaryAxis as DateTimeAxis,  
        YValues.Add(this.chart.PointToValue(indicatorYAxis as NumericalAxis,      
Please find the demo sample,
