CMO - Chande Momentum Oscillator

Posted in Indicators of technical analysis

Chande Momentum Oscillator (also known as CMO indicator) was developed by Tushar S. Chande – a well known technical analyst and futures markets trader and the author of ‘Beyond technical analysis’ book. The CMO indicator has been described first in another widely acclaimed book ‘The new Technical Trader’ (Tushar S. Chande and Stanley Kroll, year 1994).

CMO is similar to other momentum oscillators (e.g. RSI or Stochastics). Alike RSI oscillator, the CMO values move in the range from -100 to +100 points and its aim is to detect the overbought and oversold market conditions. Unlike the RSI oscillator, CMO calculates the price momentum on both – the up days as well as the down days. The CMO calculation is based on non-smoothed price values meaning that it can reach its extremes more frequently and the short-time swings are more visible.

Posted in Indicators of technical analysis

KAMA is an abbreviation of Kaufman Adaptive Moving Average. This indicator of technical analysis was created by an American trader Perry Kaufman (he is also an expert in creating algorithmic trading programs).
KAMA indicator belongs to into the group of adaptive moving averages. Moving averages, generally, follow the price and its development for a certain period of time. E.g. if a trader decides to calculate 10-day Simple moving average, the actual moving average value is calculated always from the last 10 days. Sometimes a greater weight can be put on the most actual days, like Weighted moving average does, but the important thing is that the 11th day does not have any effect on the calculation as it falls beyond the selected time range.

Heikin Ashi candles

Posted in Indicators of technical analysis

Heikin Ashi is a variation of classic candlestick charting. The words come from Japaneese. Heikin means “average” and Ashi means “step, pace”, so Heikin ashi could be best translated as an average pace (quite common mistake you can find on many websites is they call it Heiken Ashi, but Heiken means “military authority”).
Unlike common candlestick charts Heikin ashi candles try to filter out some noise of the market and display the prices in a form that is much easier to comprehend. Heikin ashi simplifies the trend identification and the process of chart trading.
