Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.

WOODSIDE FPO is currently 3.0% above its 200-period moving average and is in an downward trend. Volatility is extremely low when compared to the average volatility over the last 10 periods. There is a good possibility that there will be an increase in volatility along with sharp price fluctuations in the near future. Our volume indicators reflect moderate flows of volume out of WPL.AX (mildly bearish). Our trend forecasting oscillators are currently bearish on WPL.AX and have had this outlook for the last 6 periods. The security price has set a new 14-period high while our momentum oscillator has not. This is a bearish divergence.
