Summary

The Center of Gravity (COG) indicator is a technical indicator developed by John Ehlers in 2002, used to identify potential turning points in the price as early as possible.

Signature

1
public abstract interface CenterOfGravity

Namespace

cAlgo.API.Indicators

Properties

Name Description
Result { get; set; } The COG line, by using it you can identify the support and resistance levels and have a more or less clear idea when the price starts moving in a different direction.
Lag { get; set; } The lag/signal/trigger line of COG
