Please share if you find this article interesting. Using the Awesome Oscillator to Find Bitcoin Buy and Sell Signals Few trading tools are as simple and as elegant as the “Awesome Oscillator.” First developed by American trader Bill Williams, the aptly named Awesome Oscillator (AO) is a momentum indicator that takes advantage of an immediate trend. The AO plots its data using a histogram, similar to how the MACD histogram functions, in that it delivers a buy and sell signal when the bars pass above or below the neutral 0 line. But that is just one of its main features, the others involve taking stock of an asset’s momentum as well as any immediate change noticed via patterns on the histogram (more on that later). First, let’s take a quick look at the formula involved: Median Pri

A Suspect Crypto Site Stole My Identity – and I’m Furious This week, I was hurled into the ranks of the unfortunate people who have had their identities stolen by a dodgy crypto enterprise – and, as the above headline indicates, I’m pissed. As I was informed by a well-wisher via an email this week, I am being advertised as an “advisor” to a supposed cryptocurrency project called “US Veteran Token” (USVT) that insinuates that it in some way supports the men and women that have admirably served their country in the military. But it appears to all be a ruse. A big fat fake. The sender of the email informed me that, not only had I been linked to the website, but members of his team had also had their bios stolen and posted on the sit
