Ultimate Oscillator Stock Indices Technical Analysis and Ultimate Oscillator Stock Indices Signals

Originally developed and used to trade stocks and commodities markets.

This oscillator aims at striking a balance between leading signals and lagging signals given by the common indicators.

  • Leading - some indicators lead the stock indices market and give signals earlier than the optimum time
  • Lagging - some indicators lag the stock indices market so far that half of the move is over before a signal is generated.

This is the balance that the oscillator aims to strike, not to lead too much or lag too much - this way the oscillator will always give a signal at the ultimate time, thus its name.
