Price Zone Strategy

The Price Zone Strategy (PZS) was authored by Walid Khalil and David Steckler in the Stocks and Commodities Magazine, June 2011. The PZS uses price, previous price and moving averages to compute its oscillating value. It is a leading indicator that calculates buy and sell signals based on oversold / overbought conditions. The PZO system also uses a 60 period Exponential Moving Average and a 14 period Average Directional Movement Index (ADX). The user may change the input (close) methods and period lengths. This indicator’s definition is further expressed in the condensed code given in the calculation below.
