My favorite thread right now on futures.io (formerly BMT) is Jeff's CCI thread. Do a search for it in the blue bar above. If you like using moving averages, you might like Jeff's moving average/Bolinger Band combo of Electronic Local and Dr. Bob's trading methods with the CCI.
There are so many threads here though. Have a look around and stay awhile .

I see your question differently . Perhaps what you seek is a way to make a few high potential entries and exit before the move collapses . If so maybe most momentum oscillators you already have will do the job but its the context you need to seek , not the indis . One suggestion I bet most people here would agree with is to focus on the first retracement going in the direction of a new trend . 1. price makes a new high ( or low ) 2. price retraces down to x ( support,pivot,whatever) 3. heres where your momentum indi comes in telling you to enter long (AND exit) .
If you focus on the structure/context you then are stacking the odds in your favor . By focussing only on the 1st push in a new direction you are again stacking the odds in your favor .
For ideas google Linda Rashke and or "first cross" method and dont give her any money .
