Chande Momentum Oscillator (CMO)

The Chande Momentum Oscillator (CMO) attempts to capture the momentum of the instrument. The indicator oscillates between -100 and 100 with overbought level of 50 and oversold level of -50.

Configuration Options

  • Period: Number of bars to use in the calculations.
  • Color Selectors: Colors to use for graph elements.
  • Over Zones Enabled: Whether to shade the area between the plot and the horizontal overbought and oversold levels.
  • Over Bought: Overbought quantity
  • Over Sold: Oversold quantity
  • Display Axis Label: Whether to display the most recent value on the Y axis.


\[CMO = \left (\frac{PosSum - NegSum}{PosSum + NegSum} \right )\times 100\]


\[PosSum = \sum (Close_{current}\;-\;Close_{previous})\;when\;(Close_{current}\;-\;Close_{previous}) > 0\]

\[NegSum = \sum \left | (Close_{current}\;-\;Close_{previous}) \right |\;when\;(Close_{current}\;-\;Close_{previous}) < 0\]
