Williams' Percentage Range (W%R)
|Williams' %R is an effective momentum indicator that measures
overbought/oversold levels. Like other indicators, W%R ranges between 0% and
100% , but in opposite to the other indicators, the 0% indicating overbought and
100% - the oversold stocks. W%R measures the closing price in relation to the recent
low/high range. A bullish signal is generated when the W%R has reached 100,
five time bars have elapsed, and the W%R has subsequently fallen to 95. A
reverse signal is considered as bearish. For the sake of simplicity, the W%R
closed above 10% is considered bearish and below 90% - bullish. In trending
markets, the W%R stays at one end of the scale and gives false signals to
trade against the trend. That is why W%R is not considered a stand-along
technique, and it is essential to use it with some sort of trend formation
indicators. The divergence between price and W%R rarely occurs and presents an
important buy/sell signal. As our research shows, the W%R move to upper or lower
bounds can be used as an earliest signal of an impending reversal. Using the Williams %R bullish divergence/bearish divergence, chart patterns, trendlines, support, and resistance lines along with the W%R chart can be very useful.
