PMO – Price Momentum Oscillator

PMO – Price Momentum Oscillator

The Price Momentum Oscillator (PMO) is an oscillator based on a Rate of Change (ROC) calculation that is smoothed twice with exponential moving averages that use a custom smoothing process. Because the PMO is standardized, it can also be used as a relative force tool.

The Price Momentum Oscillator is derived by taking a one period rate of change and smoothing it with two custom smoothing functions. The custom smoothing functions are very similar to Exponential Moving Averages but instead of adding one to the time period setting to create the smoothing multiplier (as in a true EMA), the smoothing functions just use the period by itself.

    Bonjour Nicolas

    Ne peut-on pas coder ce même indicateur en le transformant ” ON CHART ” sur le graphique des prix ?
    La lecture directe sur les prix est souvent bien plus lisible
    merci et bonne journée

    • Nicolas • 09/28/2017 #

      C’est un oscillateur, qui ne partage pas la même échelle et qui a subit une standardisation pour être “borné”, donc non je ne vois pas vraiment où cela nous mènerai 🙂

    Thanks for sharing, Nicolas. Have you tested any strategy based on this oscillator? Would you share your findings, please?

    • Rafa • 09/28/2017 #

      when y try to code a simple screener let´s say signal cross over PMO, is not working and this error appears in the screener list.
