Definition: Detrended Price Oscillator (DPO)
Detrended Price Oscillator is an oscillator used to understand trends in price movements. It strips out price trends and estimates the length of price cycles from trough to trough and peak to peak. Oscillators such as the Stochastic or MACD are momentum indicator but detrended price oscillator is not a momentum indicator. It highlights peaks and troughs in price and further estimates entry and exit points in line with respect to the historical price movements in the cycle.
