Average Sentiment Oscillator has been built with a combination of bulls and bears power along with a 10-day ASO Moving Average. Its blue curve moves above the red curve when the momentum is bullish and turns opposite when the momentum switches into bearish.

The difference between the curves gets wider when the momentum gets stronger. Both curves get closer to the zero levels when the trend is in a neutral condition signaling a “no-trade” situation.
