random or chaotic, but follow specific trends that can be forecasted, they
tried to develop different tools or procedures that could help them identify
those trends. And one of those financial indicators is the
Indicator. The Indicator is relatively new, originally
introduced in 1997, and it is used to forecast the changes of trend direction.
As market prices go up and down, the oscillator appears as a direction of the
trend, but also as the safety of the market and the depth of that trend. As
the rainbow grows in width, the current trend gives signs of continuity, and
if the value of the oscillator goes beyond 80, the market becomes more and more
unstable, being prone to a sudden reversal. When prices move towards the rainbow
and the oscillator becomes more and more flat, the market tends to remain more
stable and the bandwidth decreases. Still, if the oscillator value goes below 20,
the market is again, prone to sudden reversals. The safest bandwidth value where
the market is stable is between 20 and 80, in the indicator value.
The depth a certain price has on a chart and into the rainbow can be used to judge
the strength of the move.
