2. Trend Momentum is determined by the appearance of extremely high or low values. When the indicator reaches very high values and turns down, you can expect prices to rise. At the same time, to minimize risks, it is better to wait for the price to confirm the signal of the indicator.

3. use Momentum indicator as a leading one. This method is based on the theory that the final phase of an upward trend is often accompanied by a rapid rise in prices, and the end of a bear market by their fall.

When the market approaches the maximum trend point the readings Momentum indicator rise sharply, and then begin to fall, while the price chart continues its upward or flat movement.
