Volume Zone Oscillator

The Volume Zone Oscillator is based on the article "In The Volume Zone” by Walid Khalil and David Steckler.

The technical analysis axiom states that all technical indicators can be classified as trending or non-trending, with a few exceptions. The Volume Zone Oscillator (VZO) indicator meets both of these characteristics.

John Murphy explains that the usage of oscillators gives three benefits:

  • Overbought and oversold conditions warn that the trend is weakening.
  • Divergence between the oscillator and the price action reveals hidden strength or weakness in the market, which is not always obvious when analysing the price action only.
  • Crossing the zero line can give an important trading signal.
