### Percentage Price Oscillator

This study calculates and displays a Percentage Price Oscillator of the data specified by the **Input Data** Input.

Let \(X\) be a random variable denoting the **Input Data**, and let the Inputs **Long Mov Avg Length** and **Short Mov Avg Length** be denoted as \(n_L\) and \(n_S\), respectively. Then we denote the **Percentage Price Oscillator** at Index \(t\) for the given Inputs as \(PPO_t(X,n_L,n_S)\), and we compute it for \(t \geq \min\{n_L,n_S\}\) in terms of Exponential Moving Averages as follows.

**Note**: Depending on the setting of the Input **Moving Average Type**, the Exponential Moving Averages in the above formula could be replaced with Linear Regression Moving Averages, Simple Moving Averages, Weighted Moving Averages, Wilders Moving Averages, Simple Moving Averages - Skip Zeros, or Smoothed Moving Averages.
