Weekly Percent Price Oscillator Falls, but Remains Positive for SPY

 | 

The Percent Price Oscillator (PPO) is a momentum oscillator that fluctuates above/below the zero line. While traders use divergences and direction for signals, investors can simply abide by the positive and negative crosses. The bulls have a trend edge when PPO is positive, while the bears have an edge when the PPO is negative.
