Detrended Price Oscillator (DPO)

Modified on Mon, 08 May 2023 at 07:13 PM

Detrended Price Oscillator (DPO) - is a technical analysis indicator. The developer’s idea was that the indicator is built without taking into consideration trend movements in the chart, which allows identifying overbuying and overselling levels with higher accuracy. It is similar to the moving average, since it also filters out the trend in price values, which allows easier identification of cyclicity. The indicator identifies cyclicity, displaying the moving average in the form of a straight horizontal line and then placing price values along this line in accordance with their relation to the moving average.
