Can someone explain the following "Initials"
moval 22 - 60 - wk
wrval 22 - 60 - wk
and what is behind "Bull Power" & "Bear Power"
I searched the index here at SF and see none of the above indicators.

Many thanks for any clarification.

I have a feeling you are talking about the recent TASC article about Balance of Power. I don't have the magazine handy but I seem to recall the variables he used may have been called:


I will look tonight for that issue. Maybe someone else has it handy and can confirm or deny this.

Let me re-phrase my question... what do the symbols stand for?
Its like telling time I don't need to know how a watch works to see what time it is.
I did find out about Bear & Bull Power at Trade Station Easy Language.
Thanks Yepher & Niko for your replies.

WRVAL: williams %r (10) normalized value

ADVAL: accumulation / distribution normalized value

RSVAL: rsi(2) normalized value

MOVAL: momentum(12) normalized value

Since williams %r, accumulation / distribution, rsi(2) and momentum(12) have different scales, in order to plot them in the same chart you have to NORMALIZE their values. I use a scale of 0 - 100.

Normalization allows one to compare "apples" to "oranges":

RSI normally plots on a scale of 0 - 100.

Accumulation / distribution and momentum plot on a scale of -whatever to +whatever.

Williams %r plots on a scale of -100 to 0.

So by going through the process of NORMALIZATION, one can easily compare these indicators.

So when WRVAL, ADVAL, RSVAL AND MOVAL are all near 0 or near 100 you know the stock has bottomed/topped out.

22 refers to a 22 day test ( 22 days is a month's worth of trading days).

60 refers to a 60 day test ( 60 days is 3 month's worth of trading days - yes, I know 66 would probably be better).

WK refers to weekly indicators.
