UltimateOscillator

Summary

The Ultimate Oscillator is a technical analysis oscillator based on a notion of buying or selling "pressure".

Remarks

It uses the weighted average of three different time periods to reduce the volatility and false transaction signals that are associated with many other indicators that mainly rely on a single time period.
