DPO signals long trades when it crosses above the zero line;
similar to this, DPO signals short trades when it crosses below the zero line.

When indicator makes a higher low and price at the same time makes a lower low - we have a bullish divergence.
When DPO makes a lower high and price makes a higher high - it is a bearish divergence.

hello...what is the different between DPO and dinapoli oscillator

You're talking about the same indicator. No difference.

Another great explanation with a very powerful indicator! Overbought & oversold are somewhat subjective so I added a 13 LWMA signal to the DPO 13. Now I watch for earlier of the crossing of the signal or the zero line. Absolutely fantastic! Thank you very much!

good indicator

The two indicators above are NOT identical from a source code standpoint. The Dinapoli is hardcoded to use 7 in the moving average calculation and does not shift the indicator.

what's up??? the numbers on the side of the Dinapoli are 0.0021 and -0.0017 so what are the line numbers I need to add? Same with the DPO the numbers are 0.0051 and -0031 plus the 0.000 is not in the center. Really worthless
