The Chande Momentum Oscillator is a technical momentum indicator invented by Tushar Chande. Chande introduced the indicator in his 1994 book "The New Technical Trader". It is created by calculating the difference between the sum of all recent gains and the sum of all recent losses and then dividing the result by the sum of all price movement over the period.
The Chande Momentum Oscillator formula is:
Usually CMO is used compared to static levels (usually levels -50 and +50), but that approach lacks flexibility and often lags. This version attempt to change that by adding Discontinued Signal Lines instead of using static levels for trends.
Also, instead of displaying it as an indicator in a separate window, it is displayed on the main chart as bars (if the current chart style is bars or line) or candles (it is done automatically) to make it easier to pinpoint when the momentum crosses the DSL levels.

Unlike the original Schaff Trend Cycle, this version is using TEMA MACD for calculation, which makes it "faster" in determining (even compared to DEMA version) the trend changes and thus producing signals a few bars earlier.
