Momentum Trader

This study combines two versatile momentum indicators :
Chande Momentum Oscillator:
-Measures trend strength, with higher absolute values meaning greater strength.
-Also tracks divergence. When price increases, but is not accompanied by an increase in Chande Momentum Oscillator values, it signifies bearish divergence and a reversal is likely to follow.
-Shown as the teal and pink histogram.

Percentage Price Oscillator:
-Similar to the MACD , except that it expresses the difference between the two moving averages in terms of a percentage. This makes it a little easier to visualize.
-PPO values greater than zero indicate an uptrend, as that means the fast EMA is greater than the slow (and vice versa).

Entry and Exit Conditions:
Enter When:
1) Chande Momentum crosses over zero from negative to positive territory. AND
2) It has been less than 3 bars since Chande Momentum was less than the lower green line. AND
3) Chande Momentum is rising(positive slope).

Exit When:
1) Chande Momentum is greater than the upper line. AND
2) It has been less than 6 bars since the PPO value was greater than the upper bound. AND
3) PPO is less than 5 (meaning the difference between the two EMA's is less than 5%). AND
4) PPO has a negative slope.

This study comes with alert conditions for long entries and exits.
