Cyber Cycle Indicator is categorized as an oscillator type which tries to measure market cycles. The Cyber Cycle Indicator and the Instantaneous Trendline are used in combination, according to their author, Ehlers.
The Moving Average of Oscillator (OsMA), is an indicator that is calculated by taking the difference between a shorter-term moving average and a longer-term moving average. The two most common are the 12 period moving average and the 26 period moving averages.
The FDI ranges between 1.0 and 2.0. FDI approaches 1.0 when prices tend to move in a one-dimensional straight line. Conversely, the more closely prices look like a two-dimensional plane, the closer the FDI moves to 2.0. A trend causes the FDI to move down, and we can expect the trend to end when the FDI reaches the 1.35 level. The FDI does not indicate if the trend will reverse sharply, or if prices will begin to range, but that prices should reverse to perform like a fractal again soon. FDI will move up if the market is not trending. When the FDI reaches 1.55, then a new trend is expected to start. The FDI does not indicate which way prices will break, only that a break should be coming soon.
SMI Indicator is used to predict the trend prevailing in the market i.e. either bullish or bearish. The trend is bearish if its SMI Output is below 40. Conversely, an SMI Output of above 40 indicates a bullish trend. In SMI, when the current closing price is greater than the Midpoint of High/Low Range, the outcome is above zero. Similarly, when the Current Close is less than the Midpoint of High/Low Range, than SMI is below zero. SMI uses a wide range that can vary from a negative value of -100 to a positive value of +100. In order to smooth the results of SMI, a Moving Average is determined, a.k.a. Stochastic %D.
A coherent unification model for trend indicators and oscillators is to technical analysis what a unification model of the micro-cosmos and the macro-cosmos is to physics. Although both models may still be far from being constructed, there is nonetheless a way of using trend indicators and oscillators to derive virtually instantaneous signals.
