The Stochastic Momentum Index, SMI is an adaptation of the classic Stochastic Oscillator that smoothes out the stochastic oscillations.


Stochastic Momentum Index XAUUSD Indicator



Construction of Stochastic Momentum Index

This indicator is calculated by comparing the xauusd price relative to the average of an n number of periods.


Then instead of plotting these values directly, smoothing using an Exponential Moving Average is applied and then the values drawn to form the SMI.


When the closing xauusd price is greater than the average of the range, the SMI will move up.

When the closing xauusd price is less than the average of the range, the SMI will move down.


This oscillator ranges between the values of +100 and -100, this indicator is also less prone to whipsaws compared to the stochastic oscillator.
