What is Momentum?
The momentum is an oscillator that represents the change in parities over a predetermined period of time. In other words, it is a display that indicates how much the corresponding parity has gained or lost in a specified period of time.
Momentum is a market anomaly that finance theory is difficult to explain. The fact that the price of any financial product is rising does not guarantee that prices will rise in the future. According to the effective market hypothesis, the increase in prices and the changes in demand and demand are determined by new information coming from the financial market.
The momentum indicator is calculated as follows;
Momentum = Last Closing / x Days Previous Closing * 100
How to interpret the momentum indicator?
The momentum indicator is interpreted in two ways:
Method; it is possible to use it as a trend monitor. When the indicator bottoms up and turns up, AL should make a peak at the indicator, and when it goes down, the SAT should be decided. You should keep in mind that when the momentum indicator has a new peak or dip (compared to the peak and past in the past), the current trend will continue, but the rate of increase in prices slows down and the effects of senescence factors are weaker and prices may begin to fall after a while. Nevertheless, you must change the position of the signal produced by the indicator, waiting for the price movement to confirm it.
For example, the indicator peaked and turned, and you should wait for prices to fall.
The Method Momentum indicator can also function as an indicator of the future. When prices are rising and new peaks are made, the show can not do the new peak or the prices do not bottom out when the new bottom. In this case, incompatibility occurs and it is necessary to evaluate it as an early signal of the trend change.
