The Momentum Percent Diff is a momentum-based technical indicator. Unlike the regular Momentum study, which analyzes the difference between the current and a past price value, this indicator takes into account the current and a past value of a moving average.

The Momentum Percent Diff calculates the percent ratio of the current simple moving average value to its past value. This ratio is then smoothed by another simple moving average; the difference between the original ratio and its moving average produces the main histogram plot. Histogram crossovers above and below the zero level may indicate important  trading signals.
