Chande Momentum Oscillator (CMO) Buy Sell Strategy [TradeDots]The "Chande Momentum Oscillator (CMO) Buy Sell Strategy" leverages the CMO indicator to identify short-term buy and sell opportunities.
HOW DOES IT WORK
The standard CMO indicator measures the difference between recent gains and losses, divided by the total price movement over the same period. However, this version of the CMO has some limitations.
The primary disadvantage of the original CMO is its responsiveness to short-term volatility, making the signals less smooth and more erratic, especially in fluctuating markets. This instability can lead to misleading buy or sell signals.
To address this, we integrated the concept from the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicator. By applying a 9-period exponential moving average (EMA) to the CMO line, we obtained a smoothed signal line. This line acts as a filter, identifying confirmed overbought or oversold states, thereby reducing the number of false signals.
Similar to the MACD histogram, we generate columns representing the difference between the CMO and its signal line, reflecting market momentum. We use this momentum indicator as a criterion for entry and exit points. Trades are executed when there's a convergence of CMO and signal lines during an oversold state, and they are closed when the CMO line diverges from the signal line, indicating increased selling pressure.
APPLICATION
Since the 9-period EMA smooths the CMO line, it's less susceptible to extreme price fluctuations. However, this smoothing also makes it more challenging to breach the original +50 and -50 benchmarks.
To increase trading opportunities, we've tightened the boundary ranges. Users can customize the target benchmark lines in the settings to adjust for the volatility of the underlying asset.
The 'cool down period' is essentially the number of bars that await before the next signal generation. This feature is employed to dodge the occurrence of multiple signals in a short period.

Chande Momentum Strat (Crossover)This is a Chande Momentum strategy that buys and sells when the line crosses the buy and sell lines. Different signal then the other Chande Momentum strategy. In my opinion they both work better at different time frames and possibly commodities.

CMOfilt BacktestThis indicator plots a CMO which ignores price changes which are less
than a threshold value. CMO was developed by Tushar Chande. A scientist,
an inventor, and a respected trading system developer, Mr. Chande developed
the CMO to capture what he calls "pure momentum". For more definitive
information on the CMO and other indicators we recommend the book The New
Technical Trader by Tushar Chande and Stanley Kroll.
The CMO is closely related to, yet unique from, other momentum oriented
indicators such as Relative Strength Index, Stochastic, Rate-of-Change, etc.
It is most closely related to Welles Wilder`s RSI, yet it differs in several ways:
- It uses data for both up days and down days in the numerator, thereby directly
measuring momentum;
- The calculations are applied on unsmoothed data. Therefore, short-term extreme
movements in price are not hidden. Once calculated, smoothing can be applied to the
CMO, if desired;
- The scale is bounded between +100 and -100, thereby allowing you to clearly see
changes in net momentum using the 0 level. The bounded scale also allows you to
conveniently compare values across different securities.
