Buying and selling signals could be generated using divergence: if price of security is falling, but value of CHO is rising (positive divergence) we could expect that soon prices will start to grow. Similar applies to up trend (when price is rising and CHO is falling, soon trend will change).

Zero line crossovers are also important. They could indicate trend reversals.
