Have You Ever Tried Using a Stochastic Momentum Indicator?
I like using the Stochastic-Momentum indicator in certain instances because it can often give you a much clearer picture than just using a Stochastic indicator.
Some refer to this indicator as the SMI and they use the same trading rules as they use with the Stochastic Oscillator.
Today, we will apply the Stochastic-Momentum indicator on a Weekly chart of the 30 year bond yields.
To use it on a weekly TYX chart, we like to use the following settings:
- The %K set at 14,9,9 ... and the %D at 3.
As you can see, in spite of all the Bernanke/Fed interference with interest rates, the Stochastic-Momentum indicator can give very helpful trending information for investors. As you can see below, for the past two years, the Stochastic-Momentum indicator has done a very admiral job on the TYX.
P.S. If you don't already have access to our paid subscriber updates, consider taking advantage of the 3 dozen+ charts and analyses that we post every day. Have a great weekend and we will see you on Monday.
