Price Momentum Oscillator

The oscillator can be used as a trading signal in two ways.

Firstly, it is recommended to buy when the oscillator crosses its moving average from below, and sell when the oscillator crosses its moving average from above.

Secondly, this oscillator can serve for measuring whether the market is overbought or oversold. If the indicator value falls below -70, the market is considered to be oversold. If the indicator value rises above +70, the market is considered to be overbought.
