The Awesome Oscillator indicator displays the difference of two Moving Averages - fast and slow in the form of the histogram. One way of applying of the indicator is described in book by Bill M. Williams and Justin Gregory-Williams: "Trading Chaos 2". The author recommends to use 5 and 34 parameters of Moving Averages, where the method of calculation of Moving Average is a simple Moving Average and the price used for calculation is the average price (high+low)/2.
