Acceleration/Deceleration by Bill Williams measures acceleration and deceleration of the current market trend.

It's the difference between the value of a 5/34-period Awesome Oscillator and its 5-period smoothed version:

Median price = (High+Low) / 2
Awesome Oscillator = SMA(median price, 5)-SMA(median price, 34)
AD = Awesome Oscillator-SMA(Awesome Oscillator, 5)



The following example will plots Acceleration/Deceleration:
