PMO can be used in many ways:
- PMO can be used to determine the OB/OS state. While the +2.5 to -2.5 is the usual range for broad stock market indexes, each price index will have its own “signature” range. You may have to tune this for your instrument.
- PMO triggers buy/sell on signal crossovers and ZERO crossovers.
- Common patterns like BullKiss, BearKiss are useful to track. See the link below for more info.
- Histo-only mode that can be used similar to MACD-Histo.
I have exposed all params as configurable. Have fun tuning :) Don't forget to share what you found for your instrument.

"Do PMO Sell Signals in All Three SPY Time Frames Spell Doom?"
"Currently for the S&P500, all three PMO signals (short-, medium-, and long-term) are in bearish mode."
Topping processes take a long time to form. My take? Watch this oscillator along with other indicators. I asked Lazybear to code this for
2 reasons: 1. Price momentum is but one part of the puzzle, but I feel (for my purposes) I need the info in the larger picture. 2. It's a
great complement to other studies such as bollinger bands, keltner channels, starc bands, volume studies and the like which I use.
The DPMO can be found on stockcharts.com and they have a fine platform for charting. I like TV's better (I like to tinker and be around others who like to do the same:)) Finally, the best two pieces of information is price action and the indicator between your ears...unbeatable!
