###### VC Price Momentum Indicator Components

1 – Moving Averages

A moving average is commonly used with time-series data to smooth out short-term fluctuations and highlight longer-term trends or cycles.

• A swing trading position is typically held longer than a day-trading position, but shorter than buy and hold investment strategies that can be held for months or years.

Buy and hold is an investment strategy in which an investor buys stocks and holds them for a long time.

2 – Pivot Points

In financial markets, a pivot point is a price level that is used by traders as a possible indicator of market movement. A pivot point is calculated as an average of significant prices (high, low, close) from the performance of a market in the prior trading period. If the market in the following period trades above the pivot point it is usually evaluated as a bullish sentiment, whereas trading below the pivot point is seen as bearish.

3 – Fibonacci wave structure

In mathematics, the Fibonacci numbers are the numbers in the following integer sequence, called the Fibonacci sequence, and characterized by the fact that every number after the first two is the sum of the two preceding ones:

In statistics, regression toward (or to) the mean is the phenomenon that if a variable is extreme on its first measurement, it will tend to be closer to the average on its second measurement—and if it is extreme on its second measurement, it will tend to have been closer to the average on its first.

5 – Supply and Demand

In microeconomics, supply and demand is an economic model of price determination in a market. It postulates that in a competitive market, the unit price for a particular good, or other traded item such as labor or liquid financial assets, will vary until it settles at a point where the quantity demanded (at the current price) will equal the quantity supplied (at the current price), resulting in an economic equilibrium for price and quantity transacted.

6 – Vedic Mathematics

Indian mathematics emerged in the Indian subcontinent from 1200 BCE until the end of the 18th century. Vedic Mathematics was rediscovered by Sri Bharati Krsna Tirthaji (1884-1960). Instead of a complex set of theories and equations, Vedic Mathematics offers a comprehensive unified mathematical system.
