- Noun: oscillator 'ósu`leytu(r)
- Generator that produces sonic oscillations or alternating current
Derived forms: oscillators
Type of: generator
A device that produces an alternating or pulsating current or voltage electronically. The term is sometimes used to describe any alternating-current-producing device other than an electromechanical generator.
A technical analysis tool that is banded between two extreme values and built with the results from a trend indicator for discovering short-term overbought or oversold conditions. As the value of the oscillator approaches the upper extreme value the asset is deemed to be overbought, and as it approaches the lower extreme it is deemed to be oversold.
n : a device or mechanism for producing or controlling oscillations oscillator is used here to refer to the unknown biological mechanism which gives rise to and controls circadian rhythms —Laura McMurry & J. W. Hastings; esp : one (as a radiofrequency or audio-frequency generator) for producing an alternating current
