AC DC Histogram - Bill Williams Acceleration Deceleration Oscillator


This study calculates and displays a Bill Williams Acceleration/Deceleration Oscillator for the data specified by the Input Data Input. It is computed using Simple Moving Averages, and it is closely related to Williams' Awesome Oscillator.

Let \(X\) denote the Input Data, and let the Inputs Moving Average 1 Length, Moving Average 2 Length, Moving Average 3 Length, and Moving Average 4 Length be denoted as \(n_1\), \(n_2\), \(n_3\), and \(n_4\), respectively. Then we denote the AC DC Histogram at Index \(t\) as \(ACDC_t(X,n_1,n_2,n_3,n_4)\), and we compute it for \(t \geq \max\{n_1,n_2\} + n_3 + n_4\) as follows.

\(ACDC_t(X,n_1,n_2,n_3,n_4) = SMA_t(AO(X,n_1,n_2) - SMA(AO(X,n_1,n_2),n_4)),n_3\))
