Concept / Theory

Awesome Oscillator measures the momentum of the stock.

Awesome Oscillator Calculation

It calculates the difference between a 34 period and 5 period Simple Moving Averages. The Simple Moving Averages are calculated using the midpoints (between high and low) of each period’s price.

Awesome Oscillator = Simple Moving Average (Midpoint, 5) – Simple Moving Average (Midpoint, 34)

where Midpoint = (High + Low) /2

How is Awesome Oscillator Calculated

Such indicators are called Oscillators, as they oscillate around the zero line going above or below the zero based on market changes.

The values are plotted as a histogram of red and green bars. A bar is green when its value is higher than the previous bar. A red bar indicates that its value is lower than the previous bar.

Such indicators are called Oscillators, as they oscillate around the zero line going above or below the zero based on market changes.
