at W. Blau’s Ergodic Oscillator. The ECO is a .
It is based on bars, and takes into account the size and direction
of the "body". We have found it to be a very good ,
and especially smooth, because it is unaffected by gaps in price, unlike many other
We like to use this indicator as an additional trend confirmation tool, or as an
alternate trend definition tool, in place of a weekly indicator. The simplest way
of using the indicator is simply to define the trend based on which side of the "0"
line the indicator is located on. If the indicator is above "0", then the trend is up.
If the indicator is below "0" then the trend is down. You can add an additional
qualifier by noting the "slope" of the indicator, and the crossing points of the slow
and fast lines. Some like to use the slope alone to define trend direction. If the
lines are sloping upward, the trend is up. Alternately, if the lines are sloping
downward, the trend is down. In this view, the point where the lines "cross" is the
point where the trend changes.
When the ECO is below the "0" line, the trend is down, and we are qualified only to
sell on new short signals from the Hi-Lo Activator. In other words, when the ECO is
above 0, we are not allowed to take short signals, and when the ECO is below 0, we
are not allowed to take long signals.
