Momentum measures the speed of price movement

Rule of thumb

As  is the case with most  oscillators, Momentum is more suitable for horizontal trends, while its signals may be less reliable on  markets with a significant ascending or descending tendency

The Momentum indicator, known also as Rate of Change (ROC), is an indicator that measures the speed of movement of prices. The construction of this oscillator is simple, as its formula calculates the percentage change between the actual market price and the closing price that has occurred a certain period ago. By default, the Momentum indicator is calculated on the basis of the last 14 periods.

Momentum oscillates around the line representing the value 100 - in the case of the MetaTrader 5 platform (in other cases the central value may be different, depending  on other formulas used). When Momentum assumes values higher than 100, it reflects the rising market in  a given period of time. Values below 100 signal a bearish market tendency, while longer periods of oscillation close to 100 represent  a horizontal market.  

 

Interpretation of Momentum includes possible divergences between the market action and the indicator, and its extreme values also reflect overbought/oversold market
conditions. 

 

How to use it with MetaTrader 5:
- Go to MetaTrader 5 - Insert - Indicators - Oscillators – Momentum.
- Indicate the requested period for this indicator, the default value is 14.
- The Momentum indicator will be created automatically by MetaTrader 5.
