The Price Oscillator is an indicator based on the difference between two moving averages and is expressed as either a percentage or in absolute terms. The number of time periods can vary depending on user preference. The Price Oscillator indicator calculates a fast, or short, moving average and a long, or slow, moving average. The difference between these two values is then plotted. The moving averages are not plotted. One approach to analyzing moving averages is to note the relative position of the 2 averages: the short moving average above the long moving average would yield a positive Price Oscillator value and be bullish; the short moving average below the long moving average would yield a negative Price Oscillator value and be bearish.
