Oil & Gas Momentum

Momentum is used to capture moves in shorter timeframes than trends. Momentum is the relative change occurring in markets. Relative change is different to a trend. A long-term trend can be up but the short-term momentum of a specific market can be 0. If a market moves down and then moves up and then moves back down the net relative change in price is 0. That means momentum is 0. A short-term positive momentum, with a long-term downtrend results in markets with no momentum.

MacroVar Oil & Gas momentum signal ranges from -100 to +100. The Oil & Gas momentum signal is derived as the mean value from 4 calculations for the Oil & Gas . The timeframes monitored are the following: 1 Day (1 trading day), 1 Week (5 trading days), 1 Month (20 trading days), 3 Months (60 trading days)
For each timeframe, the following calculations are performed: 1. Oil & Gas return is calculated for the specific timeframe and 2. if the return calculated is higher than 0, signal value output is 1 else signal value is -1. Oil & Gas momentum signal is the aggregate of the the 4 values. A technical momentum rollover is identified when Oil & Gas momentum signal moves from positive to negative value or vice-versa.

Oil & Gas trend

Oil & Gas trend signal ranges from -100 to +100. Oil & Gas trend indicator is the mean value of the 8 calculations described below. The timeframes monitored are the following: 1-month (20 trading days), 3-months (60 trading days), 6-months (125 trading days), 1-year (250 trading days)
For each timeframe, the following calculations are performed: 1. Oil & Gas Closing price vs Oil & Gas moving average (MA) calculation: If Oil & Gas is greater than Oil & Gas MA value is +1, else -1, 2. Oil & Gas Moving average slope calculation: if current Oil & Gas moving average is higher than the previous MA, Oil & Gas upward slope +1, else -1
Oil & Gas trend model can be used as a trend strength indicator. Oil & Gas trend strength values ranging between +75 and +100 or -75 and -100 show strong trend strength.
A technical trend rollover is identified when Oil & Gas trend strength indicator moves from positive to negative value or vice-versa.

The most important trend indicator
The Oil & Gas 52-week simple moving average and its slope are the most important indicators defining a market’s trend. Oil & Gas is in an uptrend when Oil & Gas price is higher than the 52-week moving average and the Oil & Gas 52-week moving average has an upward slope. If fundamentals of the market have not changed and the moving average slope is still in uptrend, a price drop signifies a market correction and not a change of trend. Traders should watch oscillators like the Oil & Gas oscillator and Oil & Gas RSI to buy the dip and still follow the trend. The moving average slope turn signifies a change of trend.

Oil & Gas oscillator

The Oil & Gas oscillator estimated by MacroVar is the z-score of the currentOil & Gas price versus Oil & Gas 1-year simple moving average price. The formula for the Oil & Gas oscillator is:
Oil & Gas oscillator = (Current Price – 250 trading days Oil & Gas simple moving average price) / (250 days Oil & Gas price standard deviation)

Oil & Gas oversold conditions
Oil & Gas is oversold when it is subject to a persistent downward pressure due to extreme fund outflows. When the Oil & Gas is oversold it is often due for a rebound. Values of the Oil & Gas oscillator lower than -2.5 signify oversold conditions. It must be noted that the Oil & Gas oscillator must be analyzed ibn conjunction with the rest ofOil & Gas quantitative factors. Traders should pay less attention to overbought or oversold conditions during strong trends. They should pay close attention during counter trends and all combined with the Oil & Gas RSI.
Oil & Gas overbought conditions
Oil & Gas is overbought when it is subject to a persistent upward pressure due to extreme fund inflows. When the Oil & Gas is overbought it is often due for a correction. Values of the Oil & Gas oscillator higher than +2.5 signify overbought conditions. It must be noted that the MacroVar oscillator must be compared to the rest of the Oil & Gas quantitative factors. Traders should pay less attention to overbought or oversold conditions during strong trends. They should pay close attention during counter trends and all combined with the RSI.

Oil & Gas RSI indicator

The RSI indicator measures the speed and change of price movements. The RSI indicator oscillates between 0 and 100. RSI is a useful indicator during normal trending market conditions when an asset price oscillates around its trend value. During big moves and strong trends however, like short squeezes or price spikes RSI and other oscillators don’t work.
During normal trend market conditions and when Oil & Gas is in a downtrend RSI values between 50-60 signify overbought conditions before the downtrend is ready to resume. DuringOil & Gas uptrend, RSI values of 40 to 50 signify oversold conditions before the uptrend is ready to resume. It is strongly not recommended to enter a position when the RSI is “overbought” and falling or vice versa.

Oil & Gas returns

MacroVar calculates Oil & Gas returns for the following timeframes: Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Yearly. The formula for calculating returns is:

Oil & Gas returns = (Oil & Gas Closing Price – Oil & Gas Previous Price)/(Oil & Gas Previous Price)

Oil & Gas Momentum

Momentum is used to capture moves in shorter timeframes than trends. Momentum is the relative change occurring in markets. Relative change is different to a trend. A long-term trend can be up but the short-term momentum of a specific market can be 0. If a market moves down and then moves up and then moves back down the net relative change in price is 0. That means momentum is 0. A short-term positive momentum, with a long-term downtrend results in markets with no momentum.

MacroVar Oil & Gas momentum signal ranges from -100 to +100. The Oil & Gas momentum signal is derived as the mean value from 4 calculations for the Oil & Gas . The timeframes monitored are the following: 1 Day (1 trading day), 1 Week (5 trading days), 1 Month (20 trading days), 3 Months (60 trading days)
For each timeframe, the following calculations are performed: 1. Oil & Gas return is calculated for the specific timeframe and 2. if the return calculated is higher than 0, signal value output is 1 else signal value is -1. Oil & Gas momentum signal is the aggregate of the the 4 values. A technical momentum rollover is identified when Oil & Gas momentum signal moves from positive to negative value or vice-versa.

Oil & Gas trend

Oil & Gas trend signal ranges from -100 to +100. Oil & Gas trend indicator is the mean value of the 8 calculations described below. The timeframes monitored are the following: 1-month (20 trading days), 3-months (60 trading days), 6-months (125 trading days), 1-year (250 trading days)
For each timeframe, the following calculations are performed: 1. Oil & Gas Closing price vs Oil & Gas moving average (MA) calculation: If Oil & Gas is greater than Oil & Gas MA value is +1, else -1, 2. Oil & Gas Moving average slope calculation: if current Oil & Gas moving average is higher than the previous MA, Oil & Gas upward slope +1, else -1
Oil & Gas trend model can be used as a trend strength indicator. Oil & Gas trend strength values ranging between +75 and +100 or -75 and -100 show strong trend strength.
A technical trend rollover is identified when Oil & Gas trend strength indicator moves from positive to negative value or vice-versa.

The most important trend indicator
The Oil & Gas 52-week simple moving average and its slope are the most important indicators defining a market’s trend. Oil & Gas is in an uptrend when Oil & Gas price is higher than the 52-week moving average and the Oil & Gas 52-week moving average has an upward slope. If fundamentals of the market have not changed and the moving average slope is still in uptrend, a price drop signifies a market correction and not a change of trend. Traders should watch oscillators like the Oil & Gas oscillator and Oil & Gas RSI to buy the dip and still follow the trend. The moving average slope turn signifies a change of trend.

Oil & Gas oscillator

The Oil & Gas oscillator estimated by MacroVar is the z-score of the currentOil & Gas price versus Oil & Gas 1-year simple moving average price. The formula for the Oil & Gas oscillator is:
Oil & Gas oscillator = (Current Price – 250 trading days Oil & Gas simple moving average price) / (250 days Oil & Gas price standard deviation)

Oil & Gas oversold conditions
Oil & Gas is oversold when it is subject to a persistent downward pressure due to extreme fund outflows. When the Oil & Gas is oversold it is often due for a rebound. Values of the Oil & Gas oscillator lower than -2.5 signify oversold conditions. It must be noted that the Oil & Gas oscillator must be analyzed ibn conjunction with the rest ofOil & Gas quantitative factors. Traders should pay less attention to overbought or oversold conditions during strong trends. They should pay close attention during counter trends and all combined with the Oil & Gas RSI.
Oil & Gas overbought conditions
Oil & Gas is overbought when it is subject to a persistent upward pressure due to extreme fund inflows. When the Oil & Gas is overbought it is often due for a correction. Values of the Oil & Gas oscillator higher than +2.5 signify overbought conditions. It must be noted that the MacroVar oscillator must be compared to the rest of the Oil & Gas quantitative factors. Traders should pay less attention to overbought or oversold conditions during strong trends. They should pay close attention during counter trends and all combined with the RSI.

Oil & Gas RSI indicator

The RSI indicator measures the speed and change of price movements. The RSI indicator oscillates between 0 and 100. RSI is a useful indicator during normal trending market conditions when an asset price oscillates around its trend value. During big moves and strong trends however, like short squeezes or price spikes RSI and other oscillators don’t work.
During normal trend market conditions and when Oil & Gas is in a downtrend RSI values between 50-60 signify overbought conditions before the downtrend is ready to resume. DuringOil & Gas uptrend, RSI values of 40 to 50 signify oversold conditions before the uptrend is ready to resume. It is strongly not recommended to enter a position when the RSI is “overbought” and falling or vice versa.

Oil & Gas returns

MacroVar calculates Oil & Gas returns for the following timeframes: Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Yearly. The formula for calculating returns is:

Oil & Gas returns = (Oil & Gas Closing Price – Oil & Gas Previous Price)/(Oil & Gas Previous Price)
