The Coppock Curve, a classic oscillator conceived by economist Edwin “Sedge” Coppock in 1965, was originally tailored for long-term investments on daily stock market charts but can also be adeptly applied to intraday charts. Below is a concise recapitulation of the trading methodology associated with the Coppock Curve:

Indicator Components:

  1. Coppock Curve:
    • Main oscillator line, often gray in color.
    • Derives from Rate of Change (ROC), making it a smoothed impulse indicator.

    • Gold-Colored Moving Average:
      • Smoothens the Coppock Curve.
      • Enhances clarity in discerning the curve’s direction.
