Chaos Awesome Oscillator

  1. What is the "Chaos Awesome Oscillator "?

    How do I calculate ?
     
  2. You have to ask yourself "How important is this to me?"

    If it is Very Important, then follow these steps:
    1. Buy this book from Amazon
    2. Read the description of the Chaos Awesome Oscillator
    3. Understand the description of the Chaos Awesome Oscillator
    4. Write a computer program that implements the Chaos Awesome Oscillator
    5. Debug your program
     
  3. Awesome how many gismo's you come accross to pull sheep into the markets.

    PS: Google a bit and you'll find it all for free in just under 5 minutes.
     
  4. I admit the term "Chaos Oscillator" made me curious and I looked up the code.

    What I saw made me laugh.

    Difference of 2 Simple MAs.

    Muaaaa....:

    MidBar = ( H + L ) *.5;
    AO = Average( MidBar, 5 ) - Average( MidBar, 34 );

    If AO > AO[ 1 ] Then
    SetPlotColor( 1, Green )
    Else If AO < AO[ 1 ] Then
    SetPlotColor( 1, Red );

    Plot1( AO, "AO" );
    Plot2( 0, "Zero" );
     
  5. actually I googled however its not easy to find the fomulaer.
    cos many words hits.

    Now I know how to calculate.

    finding books in English is not easy. especially English book about frading systems in T O K Y O.

    Thanks anyway..
     
  6. Why does everyone try to do Google, this site
    www.alltheweb.com is much better for searches.
     
  7. use doubletrust.net

    the future of search is combining gooble, wahoo, mickeysoft, aohell, etc... sort of like dogpile except with algorithm to measure "trust": a filter for a filter.

    and then decide the level of your research.
    Just a note here : for any CHAOS application your T/A software should support loops in order to calculate Lyapunov coefficients etc.
    A final hint : The subject is fairly advanced and the expected results are not that analog.

  10. Mr Murat Cinko has presented the NONLINEARITY TEST FOR ISTANBUL STOCK EXCHANGE. For more details, see the
    Department of Business Administration, Marmara University, Istanbul, Turkey

    His results show that ISE daily returns have a non linear behavior BUT the form of non linearity is not [for sure] chaotic.

    do you use some non linear dynamic stuff in trading? are the markets CHAOTIC in the mandelbrot-feigenbaum sense?

    well, maybe to general a question ....
     
  12. No, I have never used any chaotic model. The markets appear to have nonlinear behavior in general, it is quite close to reality, BUT, when you trade a stock [or a small group of similar stocks] there is no guarantee that this stock has the same direction with the market. On the other side, the theoretical results need a wide time frame [5 years or more, to have more than 1000 data] . The time frame of a trader may be quite smaller...
     
  13. A couple of comments:
    - the book that generated the "Awesome Oscillator" claimed to be about Chaos but was really about selling.
    - there may be such behaviour in the market (in that as you drop down timeframes you see chaos like repetition of patterns with minor variation).
    - I spent years examining complex ideas, buying thousands of dollars of books (and I skipped most of the really expensive ones), and buying expensive systems ... and, eventually, I became consistently profitable using the simplest of ideas.

    FWIW, if anyone is reading this thread seeking the holy grail, you might try such simple ideas as you find in:
    - NQoos site with the floor traders system and his advice at dacharts on how to become profitable
    - Chick Goslin's Trading Day by Day
    - Trend compatible ideas from John Hill's The Ultimate Trading Guide
    - Stan Weinstein's Secrets for Profiting in Bull and Bear Markets

    Then all you have to overcome is yourself (see Mark Douglas :))

    Good Luck to you in your quest.

    So much for a couple of comments :)
     
  14. Yes, the "Awesome Oscillator" can be found in the book by Bill Williams known as Trading Chaos. In his subsequent book, New Trading Dimensions, he added a filter known as the "Alligators" because I think his system is generating a lot of whipsaws in quiet and non-trending market. There is nothing new under the sun and he just uses different names for the same thing. His "Fractals" are actually just swing highs etc.

    Agree also that Chick Goslin's Trading Day by Day is good. In fact, it is one of my Recommended Trading Books
