# Oscillators

Oscillators are in a general sense indicators that are used to determine whether the market has gone too far in one direction. They may be bounded, having possible values only with a specified range, or they may be unbounded, being capable of taking on any value. For all practical purposes, just about any measure of price can be turned into an oscillator by a rather simple mathematical transformation. Unfortunately, the overriding probem with indicators is what period to use in calculating them: too fast a period and you get whippy choppy action that reacts too fast and leaves you breathless with its switches in direction; too slow a period, and the oscillator lags so much that the action it portends is already over, by the time that it signals the action.

How about if instead of trying to determine that best period for the oscillator, we let the market tell us? Instead of specifying a period, we shall just use the market's dominant cycle period or a suitable fraction thereof, half or quarter, if we need zippier action. Many pundits claim that the correct period to use for an oscillator is half the period of dominant cycle, if such can be determined. That is the default that we usually use. Check out the indicator, and you will see how you can change that. Click to enlarge

When using this indicator, the trader does not need to have to determine and select a period for calculation. Instead the calculation period used, on each bar, is a specified, user-selectable, factor of the period of the dominant wave as measured on that bar: quarter-wave, half-wave or full-wave.

This indicators calculations are the same as for the CCI, except for the automatically determined, and variable, period that is used for calculating the plot.

This indicators calculations are the same as for the Full Stochastics, except for the automatically determined, and variable, period that is used for calculating the %K plot. The smoothing period for the %K line is automatically set at half the period for %K.

Instead the calculation period used, on each bar, is a specified, user-selectable, factor of the period of the dominant wave as measured on that bar: quarter-wave, half-wave or full-wave.

This indicators %K calculations are the same as for the the various Stochastics, except for the automatically determined, and variable, period that is used for calculating the %K plot. You can select which type of stochastics it is to plot: Slow, Fast, Full or Full-Auto. In other words, this indicator can emulate any of the other Stochastics indicators: you just have to choose which one you want to be emulated.

When using this indicator, the trader does not need to have to determine and select a period for calculation. Instead the calculation period used, on each bar, is a specified, user-selectable, factor of the period of the dominant wave as measured on that bar: half-wave or full-wave. For momentum, the half-wave is the default, as this is, putatively the correct period to use for the momentum calculation.

This indicators calculations are the same as for the Momentum, except for the automatically determined, and variable, period that is used for calculating the plot.

Osi Volume Balance Oscillator Click to enlarge

The Osi Volume Balance Oscillator is another, optionally, adaptive oscillator. It is independent of price, and based only on volume, the theory being that volume precedes price. As it is not a derivative of price, its action can only be read as another look at what price is likely to do. It cannot be classified as either a lagging or leading indicator, but its action does suggest that it may be a good precursor of price action, based as the indicator is on volume. It is largely based on the net volume over the measuring period, turned into an oscillator.
