Anchored Momentum [LazyBear]

Anchored Momentum (AMOM), by Rudy Stefenel, is a modified momentum indicator to capture the relative momentum . AMOM uses SMA as the reference for deriving momentum , thereby anchoring it to that MA rather than "value of close n bars back".

Mr.Stefenel suggests using this like other oscillators -- crossing signal line, crossing zero, divergences.

For alerts, use "Momentum", "Signal" and "ZeroLine" plots.

Configurable options:
- Momentum Period: Default is 10.
- Signal Period: Default is 8.
- Smooth Momentum: Default is FALSE. If TRUE, enables EMA (close) to be used rather than "close".
- Smoothing Period: Default is 7. If momentum smoothing is enabled, this period is used.
- Show Histogram: Default is FALSE. This is not histogram per se (indicator - signal), but is used for highlighting the crosses. Check out the histogram pane below to see an example.
- Enable Barcolors: Default is FALSE. If enabled, colors the price data (bars/candles) using histogram color.

Thank you very much LazyBear for creating and sharing this indicator. From my first test with the Bitcoin price it looks like a really helpful indicator. Most people are mainly going to like the red and green colors. But I like the very few wrong signals and that it is still quite early with them in the higher risk below 0 area. Useful to very easily determine low risk/ high reward areas with this indicator. It's a keeper :)
