Momentum Indicators / ("Oscillators")

Momentum indicators are statistical algebraic formulas based on historical stock prices, that are used to predict future price trends. While momentum indicators may have some of the characteristics of lagging/following indicators, the intent is for them to be leading indicators, that help investors time the market. Momentum indicators are also known as "oscillators" and they are extremely helpful in identifying stocks that are in an overbought or oversold situation. Investors can benefit by taking a contrarian position. These indicators are also very useful in identifying trend reversals; they also generate their own buy and sell signals. For example, for those oscillators with two trendlines, generally the crossover between trendlines often signals the beginning of a trend reversal.

Additionally, technical analysts look for divergences between the actual stock prices and the indicators, as a trading signal. The more disciplined technical analysts base buy and sell decisions solely on the signals generated from these oscillators. However, I would only use these indicators as a guide, in conjunction with other analysis. They are called indicators for a reason. Some of the larger trading firms have developed their own proprietary oscillators, which they use as their primary indicators. The older, more established oscillators are still popular among many traders, and are used as their secondary indicators.
