Momentum oscillators such as the Relative Strength Index (RSI) and Stochastics are among the most popular trading and analysis tools. They are also among the most misunderstood and misused indicators. Thousands of traders consult these tools every day, but few truly appreciate the potential trading dynamite they are handling.

In this session, Mark helps you look beyond the common assumptions and interpretations associated with these compelling indicators to gain a solid understanding of their underlying logic, strengths and weaknesses. By examining historical test data and in-depth trade examples, you will learn to recognize when momentum oscillators will help you and when they will harm you.

Mark helps you understand what momentum does and does not tell you about price action and how different oscillators reflect the momentum concept. He teaches you how to make the most of oscillators by incorporating them into a larger trading plan and how to avoid common pitfalls. He also explains his interpretations of divergence and overbought and oversold signals. Finally, he shares his list of top oscillator myths.

In this session, as in his book and magazine articles, Mark brings to bear both his trading experiences in the futures and options pits as well as years of market analysis and financial reporting. The result is a candid and insightful look into the realities of technical analysis and trading.
