MACD-V Volatility Normalized Momentum

Full Credit to Alex Spiroglou, DipTA(ATAA), CFTe, and author of the MACD-V.

Alex recently received the CMT Dow Award for his work to improve on the classic MACD indicator. The MACD-V tackles some obvious challenges with the classic MACD indicator, which is normally an unbounded indicator and inconsistent between different symbols and markets.

"Our goal is to improve an existing tool (MACD), so that - by eliminating its shortcomings - we will be creating a unique type of hybrid 'boundless oscillator', that opens the doors for several pattern recognition opportunities which would not be definable using the classic MACD."

When the oversold/overbought range of 150 and -150 was determined, Alex tested where 95% of the data fell within the bands using the S&P price history as reference. Users are encouraged to find ranges relevant to the securities/instruments they are analyzing.
