how do you use this?
There are sooo many ways this tool can be used! Here I simply overlapped a longer time frame (weekly) momentum over the one day momentum. This tool makes spotting divergence extremely easy.

Great illustration coondawg!

thanks ! just like to help with what I see, what I know, UCS GEARS puts up great tools. I can go on and on and on, but I wouldnt want to hi-jack the thread.
