Education – Lesson 18 – PPO

The PPO uses percentage change to calculate the momentum of the stock price. This compares to the MACD, that uses price change to calculate the momentum of the stock price. The difference is shown by having both displayed on a strong stock like Amazon.

Because Amazon has had big thrusts in the past, by using the percentage change in the price, we can compare when Amazon had the biggest moves in price. The most recent thrust was one of the biggest percentage moves in Amazon’s history.

The PPO also shows momentum divergences more clear than the MACD.

Education – Lesson 17 – RSI

The RSI indicator calculates the strength of the price action compared to its prior range. So when a stock is trending up, the RSI indicator will be near the top of the range suggesting the stock is moving higher. Interesting traits about the RSI. The RSI typically stays above 40 on longer term uptrends on a weekly chart. When the stock has trouble rallying above 60after falling below 40, this is a clue that we are probably in the top of the range of a downtrend.

Education – Lesson 16 – KST

Thing…that’s the name of this week’s Momentum Indicator, created by Martin Pring!⠀

The KST is calculated using a series of different time frames and merging that data into one line. The KST is a very smooth indicator that has a rolling flow to it, which is different than the MACD. It may show divergences a little better than the MACD on big moves, and it may simplify some smaller peaks into just one momentum signal. ⠀

Do you have a preference between the MACD and KST? 🤔⠀

Education – Lesson 15 – MACD

MACD = Moving Average Convergence Divergence⠀

We continue on the idea of Momentum Indicators, using the waves we see with the MACD, corresponding with the price – waves get bigger, price gets bigger. We use the MACD, to see where the stock is hovering above or below zero.⠀
