Momentum measures the rate of change in closing prices and is used to detect trend weakness and likely reversal points. It is often underrated because of its simplicity. High Momentum readings (positive or negative) occur when a trend is at its strongest. Lower readings are found at the start and end of trends. Overbought and oversold levels are set separately for each security based on the performance of the indicator over past cycles.
