Awesome Oscillator

Posted By: TradersLog

Bill Williams’ Awesome Oscillator (AO) is designed to show current market momentum and is displayed as a histogram. The Awesome Oscillator is created using the difference between the 34-period and 5-period simple moving averages of the bar’s midpoints (H+L)/2.

Each bar of the histogram that is higher than the preceding bar is green. Each bar that is lower than the preceding bar is red.

Awesome Oscillator Interpretation and Signals

Zero Line Cross

As with other oscillators such as CCI, the Awesome Oscillator generates a trading signal when the zero line is crossed. A buy signal is generated when the histogram is crossed from below. A sell signal is generated when the histogram is crossed from above.

Saucer

A buy signal is generated when the oscillator is above the zero line has two descending red bars are followed by a green bar.

A sell signal is generated when the oscillator is below the zero line and two ascending green bars are followed by a red bar.

Twin Peaks

A buy signal is created when the histogram is below the zero line and the last indicators  low is higher than the preceding low. The histogram must remain below zero between these two troughs. When the higher low is made and followed by a green bar the buy signal is generated.

A sell signal is created when the histogram is above the zero line and the last bars high is lower than the preceding peak. The histogram must remain above zero line between the two peaks.  When the lower high is made and followed by a red bar a sell signal is generated.
