  • Novice Trader's Notebook: Momentum by Amy Wu

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Stocks & Commodities V. 22:4 (74): Novice Trader's Notebook: Momentum by Amy Wu MOMENTUM The momentum indicator was first presented in J. Welles Wilder's ""New Concepts In Trading Systems"" and has since become a popular technical tool. Price momentum is defined as the measure of velocity of price change or market speed.

Specifically, the on-balance volume keeps tabs on the running total of volume that is flowing in and out of a security. For instance, if the price of a security closes higher than the close of the previous day, it's up volume. Likewise, when the security's price closes lower than the previous day, it's down volume....

  • Fast Fourier Transformation by Amy Wu

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Fast Fourier Transformation by Amy Wu For a long time, Fourier transforms were used mostly by engineers. Transforms were used to study sound waves, frequency vibrations, and other repetitive occurrences. Since then, Fourier transforms have been applied to a number of other diverse fields. Aerospace engineers use them to study a plane's wing-tip vibrations during flight, while musicians use them to identify patterns when strumming musical instruments. It was only a matter of time before someone used Fourier transforms for technical analysis, specifically, a type of calculation called the fast ...

Introduced by Donald Lambert in 1980, the commodity channel index is a price momentum indicator that measures the degree of variance of a security price from its statistical mean. Although originally developed for trading commodities, the CCI can be u...
