Tools used to provide TSP fund adjustment change recommendations:
5, 20, 50, 100, 200 EMA – EMA is exponential moving average, a type of moving average that reacts faster to recent price changes than a simple moving average (SMA). The 12- and 26-day are two of the most popular short term averages, and the 50- and 200- day EMAs are the two most used as signals for long- term averages.
MACD Histogram – MACD is moving average convergence divergence. The MACD histogram is a measurement between the difference in the MACD line and the signal line. This can be used to determine changes in trends for both the short-term and the long-term
Williams % R – In technical analysis, this is a momentum indicator measuring overbought and oversold levels, similar to a stochastic oscillator. It was developed by Larry Williams and compares a stock’s close to the high-low range over a certain period of time, usually 14 days. It is used to determine market entry and exit points. The Williams %R produces values from 0 to -100, a reading over 80 usually indicates a stock is oversold, while readings below 20 suggests a stock is overbought.
PMO Price Momentum Oscillator – The DecisionPoint Price Momentum Oscillator (PMO) is an oscillator based on a Rate of Change (ROC) calculation that is exponentially smoothed twice. Because the PMO is normalized, it can also be used as a relative strength tool. Stocks can thus be ranked by their PMO value as an expression of relative strength.
