Refe­rent : Alex Spiroglou 

In 2015 Alex crea­ted a new and novel momen­tum indi­ca­tor, that would sol­ve the short-comings of ran­ge-bound oscil­la­tors (RSI, Sto­cha­stics, etc), and unbound indi­ca­tors (MACD, RoC, etc), by crea­ting a new hybrid momen­tum indi­ca­tor that over­co­me the­se short­co­mings while retai­ning their advan­ta­ges. The new indi­ca­tor is MACD-v, which over­ca­me the 5 flaws of the clas­sic MACD.
In 2022 he deci­ded to publicly dis­c­lo­se his rese­arch via a paper "MACD-v: Vola­ti­li­ty Nor­ma­li­sed Momentum".
It was awarded:
1. The NAAIM “Foun­ders Award”, for advan­ces in Acti­ve Invest­ment Manage­ment (2022)
2. The CMT Asso­cia­ti­on “Charles H. Dow Award”, for out­stan­ding rese­arch in Tech­ni­cal Ana­ly­sis (2022).
Now it is being incor­po­ra­ted into major Tech­ni­cal Ana­ly­sis plat­forms (Tra­ding­view, MT4, Metastock, Stock­Charts, etc). Join us so Alex can pre­sent and explain this new momen­tum tool which is being incor­po­ra­ted into major Tech­ni­cal Ana­ly­sis plat­forms (Tra­ding­view, MT4, Metastock, Stock­Charts, etc).
