The Stock Market Momentum Model uses the change in price to predict a future change. In trading jargon, this change in price is referred to as momentum. Mathematically, the model can be considered to be a causal high pass filter of degree 1.
In this model, the user can analyze the momentum indicator response as it relates to the daily closing price of a few popular stock indices. The upper plot shows the closing price and a smoothed price (in blue) if the filter is turned on. The lower panel is the momentum indicator. Users can drag a cursor left and right to compare values on these two graphs. Below, the cursor is dropped at a point where the momentum shifts from negative to positive values, which happens to be the beginning of a bull market. A trader would want to buy at these opportunities and sell when the momentum becomes negative. Time is measured in years and in each year there are approximately 253 business days.
