The forex industry is made up of countless definitions and it's easy to forget a few along the way. But because no forex education can be complete without a glossary of forex terms, we've compiled one which aims at explaining key definitions in the simplest way possible.

A technical analysis oscillator developed by Donald Lambert. It compares the current typical price ([High + Low + Close] / 3) with a simple moving average over a selected period of time usually 14 or 20. The oscillator values are normalized by using a divisor based on mean deviation. The majority of the values (about 70%) fluctuate between -100 and +100. Buying opportunities are suggested above +100 and selling opportunities below -100 while the same levels may be considered as overbought and oversold by others.
