How are momentum indicators used in technical analysis?

Momentum indicators are a type of technical indicator used in financial markets to measure the strength and speed of price movements. These indicators are based on the assumption that prices tend to move in the same direction as the underlying trend and that changes in momentum can signal potential trend reversals. Momentum indicators can help traders and investors identify overbought and oversold conditions, forecast future market direction, and confirm the strength of a trend. Some common momentum indicators used in technical analysis include the relative strength index (RSI), the moving average convergence divergence (MACD) indicator, and the average true range (ATR) indicator. These indicators are displayed as lines or histograms on a chart and can provide valuable information to traders and investors.

“A peak performance trader is totally committed to being the best and doing whatever it takes to be the best. He feels totally responsible for whatever happens and thus can learn from mistakes. These people typically have a working business plan for trading because they treat trading as a business. ” – Van K. Tharp
