In his article "The Hunt for Superior Signals – Two Moving Function Hybrids" (September 2005), William Rafter described the Moving Slope Rate Of Change. This is the MSROC as originally described.
Instead of using just a change in price to calculate slope (as with Rate Of Change or "ROC"), the slope of a least-squares line is used to calculate MSROC. That produces a much smoother result than the regular ROC and that way the number of false signals is significantly decreasing compared to the ROC itself.
This version is extending the basic version of the indicator. Instead of having only a fixed zero level as a criteria for trend change determination, this version adds floating (dynamic) level(s). The main advantage of the floating levels compared to the fixed zero level is its responsiveness and earlier detection of trend change (with much less noise than in cases when the slope of the MSROC is used) and is filtering out quite a lot of false signals along the way.
Relative Momentum Index (RMI) is a variation of the RSI indicator. The RMI counts up and down days from the Close relative to the Close X days ago (where X is not limited to 1 as is required by the RSI) instead of counting up and down days from Close to Close as the RSI does.Vertical Horizontal Filter
The Vertical Horizontal Filter ("VHF") determines whether prices are in a trending phase or a congestion phase. The VHF was first presented by Adam White in an article published in the August, 1991 issue of Futures Magazine.
